Five Indian Cricketers Who Were Never Selected for the National Side
India is a country which has often produced talented cricketers, particularly it is further famous for the assembly line for batters. Being cricket as one of the major sources in sports, the fans in the country celebrate it like a religion. In the country of distinct religions with different languages, cricket stands as the common term. In fact, every kid in India grows up playing cricket with a bunch of his friends in a gully or congealed maidans. However, not many passionate young cricketers can list themselves to the elite national side.
Besides, how difficult would it be for the Ranji cricketers to set the right frequency with the selectors of the Indian cricket team? Well, in answer to the question here is a list of five successful Indian cricketers who were just not lucky enough to get selected for India’s senior team.
List of Top Five Indian Cricketers Never Selected for The National Team:
One of the most feared domestic cricket bowlers, Rajindra Goyal is the name with the most wickets in Ranji Trophy.
Goyal had been among those elite cricketers who started playing for a school team at an early age. His career’s first major success was for North Zone School in 1957 when he took four wickets against West Zone in the final of the All-India Schools tournament. He was declared as the best bowler of the tournament.
And the very next year, Goyal was part of the next Ranji tournament for Patiala. Ever since then, he never once had to look back. Goyal has an incredible record of scalping 640 wickets in 123 games at an average of 17.15.
However, his impressive bowling figures were not ideal enough for the selectors of the India National Cricket Team. The presence of the bowlers like Bishan Bedi, who bowled in a similar style somewhat restricted Goyal’s future in the international cricket.
