The Indian cricket team is currently one of the best cricket teams in the world. Over the years, the Indian cricket team is performing tremendously and all the players are performing brilliantly in all the formats of the game. However, there are so many players who are brilliant in one format and aren’t that good in another format.
Here, in this article, we bring you a list of 5 Indian cricketers who should retire from the shortest format of the game. Have a look:
5. Ajinkya Rahane:
Ajinkya Rahane, the vice-captain of the Indian cricket team is currently one of the most special players in the test format. He has been giving some exceptional performances in Tests as well as in the ODI format of the game.
Though, Ajinkya has been a strong player in the ODI format of the game but he has failed to find a permanent spot in the ODI team. But when it comes to the shortest format of the game, he is not able to fit in the T20 squad.
4. Kedar Jhadav:
Kedar Jhadav is a regular feature in the Indian ODI team from the last year and he has been giving exceptional performances. However, with the arrival of some amazing players in the shortest format of the game, Kedar Jhadav has failed to remain regular in the Indian T20 team. Kedar Jhadav should focus on ODI and should retire from the shortest format of the game.
3. Dinesh Karthik:
After Yuvraj Singh, a player who has gained the title of the ‘fighter’ in the Indian cricket team, then it has to be Dinesh Karthik. The wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik returned to team India after giving exceptional performances in domestic cricket. He also made a stellar comeback in the ODI format and looks absolutely fit for the team.
However, it seems impossible for him to make a comeback in the T20 team because of the amazing performances of the young players in the T20 team. In such a situation, Dinesh Karthik should focus more on ODI format and should retire from ODI format.
2. Umesh Yadav:
Umesh Yadav one of the most talented bowlers of team India, is the key bowler in the Test format. Umesh might not be in the ODI squad yet but he can’t be considered inferior in the ODI format. Umesh Yadav is emerging as a great bowler but as far as the shortest format is concerned, he should take retirement from the T20 squad so as to focus more on Tests and ODI format.
1. Mohammed Shami:
Mohammed Shami is currently one of the best bowlers in the world. He has impressed one and all with his brilliant performances since a long time now. While he is brilliant in both Tests and ODI format, he should give up hope of playing in T20 cricket.
