When your talent is ignored for a long time, it might frustrate you and sometimes it goes on to strain relationships with others. Similarly, there have been such instances when cricketers have vent out their frustration because being ignored by their respective cricket boards which had eventually affected the relationship.

Sometimes, the voices raised by cricketers can backfire them and subsequently it lead to end their careers unceremoniously. Let’s take a look at five cricketers whose fight with their boards ruined their international career.
Five cricketers whose fight with their boards eventually ruined their career:
Gautam Gambhir is the finest cricketer India ever had. He has played match-winning knock for the country in most of the major tournaments for India. No Indian fan can forget his special knocks which came in the final match of T20 World Cup 2007 and the ODI World Cup 2011.
But his career soon came to an end after his rift with the-then captain MS Dhoni. His aggressiveness against Dhoni led his snub from the team. Neither Dhoni nor the board allowed him to compete again at a senior game at least until Dhoni was the captain.
Instead, Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan were given opportunities to open the innings. Also, both didn’t let the opportunity slip from their hands. The duo went on to score runs consistently and cemented their place in the team.
In 2018, he announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.
