Want to be a professional cricketer?
Depression is now becoming a very serious issue in our lifestyle. Many people from the world, including from developed countries, are battling against this depression. While many people are still not aware of this issue, sometimes it takes a dangerous in their lives.
Like many people, some cricketers have also suffered from depression. Some of their careers were just ruined due to depression.
Here we are discussing the top ten cricketers who fought against depression during their international careers.
Australia-born former England wicket-keeper Tim Ambrose battled with the depression after he was removed from the national team in 2009. After then he struggled mentally, and it hampered his English County cricket career at that time as he missed many matches of the 2010 season.
Ambrose served for the England cricket team between 2008 and 2009 where he played 11 Tests, five ODIs and only T20I.
Former England cricketer Michael Yardy served for the England cricket team from 2006 to 2011, where the all-rounder played 28 ODIs and 14 T20Is.
Yardy was battling against depression for some time, and just before England’s match against Sri Lanka in the quarter-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, he decided to leave the national team. It was tough for him to leave that global tournament in the middle, but he felt it was the best decision at that time.
