Talking about Indian cricket, one cannot help but wonder why emerging talent vanishes before it could make a big difference. India sadly has been prone to many short careers of immense potential. The problem either lies with the so called ‘system’ or the players themselves but country as a whole is at loss. Here at ‘The SportsRush’ we look at 5 Indian cricketing careers that never really took off. These players showed the world their metal but just didn’t get the kick.
1) Wasim Jaffer
This Mumbai lad is one of the most successful domestic players in the Indian arena. Having numerous records in the domestic circle helped him gain a position in the Indian Cricket Team but the fame was short lived. Making it to the playing XI after a considerable wait he made two double hundreds to cement his place; not for long.
IPL in 2008 changed the way people looked at cricket. He was not up to the mark as far as being dynamic and fast is considered. Also the fact that Sehwag-Gambhir pair was doing well at the top of the order didn’t help his cause. He was soon out of the side and a career was wasted.
