5 cricketers you might not remember played for Team India in last 5 years

Abhinav Mukund and Mayank Markande

Team India is one of the most successful teams in cricket history. Over the last 15 years, Team India has won the ICC T20 World Cup, the ICC Champions Trophy and the ICC Cricket World Cup. Also, the Indian cricket team finished runners-up in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship.

Over the years, Team India has given an opportunity to many cricketers to showcase their talent to the international level. However, not everyone has been able to achieve grand success like Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid or Anil Kumble.

There have been many changes in the Indian squad in the last five years, with many performers from domestic arena and IPL failing to cement their spot. In this article today, we will look at the five players you may not remember played for Team India in the last five years.

Left-handed opening batter Abhinav Mukund played two Test matches for India in the year 2017. He scored 109 runs in those two games. His last Test was against Sri Lanka in Galle. Mukund now works for Star Sports as a cricket expert.

2. Mayank Markande
