4 players who could not come close to a comeback after getting dropped by Team India
It is common for cricketers to get dropped and then reselected by Team India. However, in certain cases, a few players have hardly got close to making a return after getting dropped by India. In this article, we take a look at four players who hardly tried to make a comeback after getting dropped by Team India.
Jaydev Unadkat recently made a comeback to the Test Team after 12 years. Cheteshwar Pujara immediately made a comeback to Team India after getting dropped after his performance in the County. The likes of Ishant Sharma are trying hard to do well in domestic cricket. A few players, though, never made a comeback although they had the age and skills to do that.
1) Murali Vijay
Murali Vijay is one of the players who hardly tried to make a comeback after getting dropped by Team India. It is interesting to note that after getting dropped by Team India, Murali Vijay hardly did well in any competitions he played. In fact, he also skipped a few of them. Even in IPL, he had a good chance to do well for CSK. However, that also did not happen. Recently, he played in the Tamil Nadu Premier League and even scored a century. However, he did not follow up on that. Considering the competition for places in the Indian Team right now, a comeback is almost impossible for Vijay.
2) Kedar Jadhav
Kedar Jadhav started his international career late but he quickly cemented his spot in the Indian Team. However, frequent injuries and bad form led to his exit from the squad. After that, though, Kedar was poor in IPL and he also did not do well for Maharashtra in domestic cricket. Even now, he is not consistent in domestic competitions and hence, it could be hard for his comeback.
3) Stuart Binny
Stuart Binny is also one of the players who hardly tried to make a comeback after getting dropped by Team India. India tried out Stuart Binny in all three formats of the game because the team needed a medium-pace bowling all-rounder. Binny was not able to justify his selection. Considering his profile, he could have made a comeback if he did well domestically. He could not do that and even failed to do well in IPL. Hence, he never made a return. He has now retired from the game.
4) Varun CV
It is still not late for Varun to force a comeback. With a solid IPL campaign, he can surely throw himself into the eyes of the selectors again. However, be it in TNPL or for Tamil Nadu, Varun has not shown signs of returning to form. He must work on his fitness and should add more variations to give himself another proper chance with the men in blue.
