3) Munaf Patel
This story is no less than a Bollywood masala. Tall and wiry, Munaf Patel was regarded to be the quickest Indian bowler when he came onto the scene in 2003. Even as Gujarat and Baroda showed interest in him, he chose Mumbai after impressing Sachin Tendulkar. Many blame the Indian national coaches for his decline from a 150kmph to a 130kmph bowler.
With injuries to Zaheer and Sreesanth, Munaf was called to the Indian side for the tour of Sri Lanka in 2010. He managed to establish himself in the ODI side with his consistent performances and played an important role in the 2011 world cup. But unfortunately, it was the last year that he played for India. Since India’s horrendous tour to England, the pacer has not been able make a comeback into the side.
