2. S. Badrinath:
Badrinath comes from the traditional school of batsmanship and has been a regular performer in the domestic circuit. He played just two test matches for India and both against South Africa in early 2010. In his debut test at Nagpur, Dale Steyn was wrecking havoc with his reverse swinging deliveries and the Indian batsman looked life fish out of the water. In such derelict conditions, Badrinath scored a half century and gave his best for the side. But the positives end right there! He was again given a break in the squad for the 2012 home test series against New Zealand as a late replacement for the then retired VVS Laxman. After that series, Badrinath disappeared into the gloom only to never emerge. Badrinath got a few chances in ODI’s, but were they enough to judge his caliber as a test batsman?
