2 players you might not know were part of the Indian squad in the recent 50-over World Cups
Playing in a World Cup is the dream of every cricketer. Most of the players plan their careers in such a way that they are a part of a few World Cup campaigns. While some of them become successful in being a part of it, most of them fail to make it to the squad. A few, though, surprisingly get selected for the event. Of course, it is mainly because of their skillset and they deserve it but their selection is surprising because they were not in the scheme of things around the event. In this article, we look at two players you might not know were part of the Indian squad in the recent 50-over World Cups.
1) Axar Patel - 2015 World Cup
Axar Patel is seen as an aspirant but he actually made his India debut very long ago. In fact, he has even played a 50-over World Cup. This is a surprising fact because it has been seven years since Axar's selection and he is still in and out of the ODI setup. That said, he is an integral part of the Test squad, especially for the games at home.
2) Kedar Jadhav - 2019 World Cup
Kedar Jadhav is also one of the players you might not know were part of the Indian squad in the recent 50-over World Cups. Before the 2019 World Cup, Team India had a problem in the middle order. Kedar Jadhav had done well in a few ODIs and apart from the bat, he had also contributed with the ball. Hence, he got into the squad as an option in the lower middle order. Cut to three years later, Kedar is very distant from the squad. In fact, the Maharashtra batter does not even have an IPL contract. It would take a brilliant domestic season for him to earn it back.
