Want to be a professional cricketer?
In every stream, you will have to face competition with the better ones. To beat your competitor, a person needs to work on their weakness to get noticed in this world. Similarly, in the game of cricket, a player achieves fame with their cricketing skills. But the cricketer constantly needs to perform the best to maintain the position in this game.
Many of the players had a promising start in their career but could not continue for long. Reasons for their downfall might be tough competition or their inconsistent performances which led their snub from the team. Let’s take a look at the Five Cricketers From India Who Didn’t Do Justice To Their Talent.
Five Indian cricketers who didn’t do justice to their talent:
5. Robin Uthappa:
Robin Uthappa had a dream-like beginning in the international cricket but soon he vanished away from the team’s batting order because of the emergence of better cricketers than him.
In 2006, he played the maiden ODI against England and scored a well compiled 86, opening the innings at Indore. Following impressive performances, the Karnataka player was included in the 2007 World Cup and also got the place in the T20 World Cup the same year.
But Uthappa could not give consistent performance in the tournament. However, he played all the matches in the tournament, which was won by India. His performance dipped after the Asia Cup 2008.
From there om, he was in and out of the team and finally was dropped from the team at the end of 2015.
Uthappa has played 46 ODIs and 13 T20Is and scored 934 and 294 respectively. However, the 33-year old plays in domestic cricket for Kerela but has failed to get a call from the national side.
