The game of cricket has evolved considerably over the past few decades, which means that the sport is not limited to the solo format. Although the Test arena is still regarded as the premier platform to showcase its talents, the rise of white ball cricket has enabled countless skills to emerge.
Subsequently, the 50-over World Cup has grown taller and many feel the top of the game. Amazingly, that particular competition saw plenty of drama and certainly has the quality sword as the best outfit on the planet.
However, despite the tournament’s perfect weight, some sparkling talents have been left out of the global exaggeration, due to a combination of injuries, insufficiency or lack of luck compared to the format.
While their presence at the World Cup did not erase the glitter of their glittering career, it certainly turned the average cricket enthusiast into a land of fantasy and wondered what had happened.
So, through the lens of this article, we’ll take a look at the five best cricketers who have never participated in the 50-over World Cup.
# 5 Ishant Sharma (India)
In 2007, Lankan in Delhi made an international bow against Bangladesh in Dhaka against this fast bowler. A few months later, Ishant Sharma He captured Indian imagination when he spread Pakistan to M Chinnaswamy Stadium and set a fine record of five wickets.
After the poster, the crest endured its fair share of crests and tendons before finally finding its foot on the test circuit in the mid-20s. As a result, Ishant has become one of India’s most important cogs in the long format, offering a variety of options for him with his accuracy and long mantra bowling ability.
However, these tendencies to comply with tight lines and lengths have led to his downfall in white ball cricket. As a result, this fast bowler could not nail India’s ODI set-up. He enjoyed a relatively good run at the beginning of the decade, which won the Champions Trophy, his return to red-ball cricket was much better.
To draw a more parallel picture, Ishant has received 277 Test wickets at an average of 12.3, which is commendable considering his role in the squad. Although his average in ODIs is somewhat better, his economy rate of 7.72 throughout that match has made him a less viable option.
So, it should come as no surprise that Pacer did not represent his nation in the biggest stage of his limited overs.
# 4 Cheteshwar Pujara (India)
When Cheteshwar Pujara He made his international debut against Australia in Bengaluru on 27, and was identified by many. Rahul DravidThe successor of In fact, the former lit that special fire in his first Test as he stepped up to win a match-winning kn2.
And, to add to the list of coincidences, the right-hander did so while drafting Dravid at bat 5 in the second innings of the above encounter.
In later years, Pujara has made a niche for himself in the longest version of the sport, though he has not yet reduced the flames of his predecessor to number 7. However, matches throughout the match. average6 A record of a test average is not a joke.
Throughout his career, the Solar State boy has been praised for his jokes, determination and tactics. Unfortunately, however, these features did not make him an automatic starter for India in white ball cricket.
To put it in perspective, Pujara has played only five ODIs, and by those who came against Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, he points out that the batsman was never part of the team management plan.
Although the Indian cricketer still has a few years of international cricket left in him, it seems unlikely that he will be able to average his game enough to adapt to the 5-over format before the next World Cup.
# 3 Justin Langer (Australia)
In the 20’s, most teams around the world were not able to compete with Australia in the Test landscape. The Aussies possessed exceptional batsmen and boasted an equally overwhelming bowling attack. Surprisingly, they came to the doorstep of the ICC rankings.
And, during the Starler Run, many of the elements were not as important and not as underrated Justin Langer. At the top of the order was the current Australian men’s team coach, a pillar of concentration and perseverance. He formed an inalienable partnership with Matthew Hayden And ensured that Assyria was always ahead of the game regardless of the conditions.
However, Langer could not translate the form into a one-off, where he introduced one of the batsmen who failed to catch up with the format.
After that, he played in only 1 ODI, scoring 180 runs at an average of 32. By contrast, he played 105 Tests for Australia and scored 7.76 runs at an average of 1.27 with 20 centuries.
So, the above only highlights the notable paradox of the former Australian opener formats.
# 2 Sir Alastair Cook (England)
As the Test debut against India in Nagpur was a surprise, Sir Alastair Cook Was striving for greatness. And over the next decade and a while, the opener has given a lot of weight to the idea as he threw every Test bowling attack and scored 127272 runs in 111 games.
In addition, he hit 5 centuries and 5 fifties at an average of 1.6, which is good for most of his career in the Army countries (South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia).
However, the water tension technique and the density bag that helped him win the prize have resulted in some alterations to the Cricket alias One Day.
Former England captain in 12 ODIs was only able to score 127 runs at an average of 36.3. In addition, his strike rate of 77.7.১৩ draws an involuntary figure and perhaps this evening sums up the ailments plagued by limited English cricket.
And, to make matters worse, Cook was dismissed as one-day captain just months before the ICC 2015 Cricket World Cup. Surprisingly, the Englishman, desirous of appearing on stage in this stage, was relieved of that opportunity.
# 1 VVS Laxman (India)
In 2001, India looked down at the bar of a humiliating defeat at Eden Gardens. The Australians headed for the climb and the result seemed like a formality. Yet, at this point, VVS Laxman, The guardian angel of India, in the longest format, stands up and writes a new chapter in Indian cricket folklore.
Post that knock, the elegant right-hander continued to weave his magic on numerous occasions. In fact, when going strong in India, he often morphs into India’s most important player and this ensures that his side will not be under pressure.
However, unfortunately, the Indian could not establish himself as a consistent starter in the ODI format, meaning he could only donate to Neil in 86 events. Although he performed admirably, scoring 2338 runs at an average of 30.76, his inability to raise the tempo at mid-stage forced him to quit.
As a result, he was taken to the World Cup 28 and 20 in the over. The joke was removed from the order before the edition, which denied him the chance to become the biggest cricketing party.
Since the dust really settles down in his distinguished career, no one can help the right-handers, especially after what he has achieved for the nation. And, VVS Laxman and the World Cup were a fantasy story that was not as fortunate to enjoy.
