5 Indian players who might already have played their last International game
The Indian cricket team is never sort of players who are waiting in queue outside the team to get their chances in the squad. At the moment also a bunch of uncapped players is continuously knocking the doors of selectors. At the same time, a set of senior players is also waiting outside the team to make a come back into the team of India.
Among them, some players are from the World Cup winning squad in 2011 too. While the fresh talents continuously coming in, the chances for senior players to make a come back into the national side are very low.
Let’s have a look at five important senior players who were around the team in the last couple of years, will never get a chance to play a single International game in the future.
Parthiv Patel is the senior wicket-keeper among the active wicket-keepers in the Indian team. The left-handed batsman made his International debut in 2002 in the ODI game against New Zealand. During the same year, he made his Test debut against England.
The Indian wicket-keeper was the youngest wicket-keeper batsman to make Test debut, at the age of 19. In this long span of time, he failed to have a bright career. He scored 934 runs from the 25 Tests he played and 736 runs in the 38 ODIs played. Since the debut of MS Dhoni, Parthiv Patel was less seen in Indian clothes.
The left-handed batsman lastly played a Test match in 2018 in South Africa and his last ODI appearance was in 2011 against England. Now the left-handed wicket-keeper batsman has a very tiny chance to appear in Indian clothes again as there are young wicket-keepers like Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson are around the team now.
