5 Brilliant Cricketers Who Have Been Forgotten
Everyone remembers Joginder Sharma, the man who bowled that fateful final over in 2007 World T20. That one over turned a page in Indian cricket history and Joginder became an overnight sensation. Joginder never played a T20I for India after that. Joginder is now a police officer in Haryana.
He is a former Indian cricketer who played in 21 Tests and 35 ODIs from 1993 to 1998. Although his own contributions were only of limited value, India lost none of the 21 Tests in which he played.
Hrishikesh Kanitkar is a former left-handed batsman and a right-arm offbreak bowler from India. When he retired in 2015, he was one of only three batsmen to have scored 8000-plus runs in the Ranji Trophy and also only captain in the Ranji Trophy’s history to lift the Elite and Plate league titles.
Sadanand Viswanath is a former Indian cricketer who played in 3 Tests and 22 ODIs, from 1985 to 1988. He is remembered for his remarkable glove-work during the World Championship of Cricket held in Australia in 1985. Sadanand currently is a first class umpire and coach.
Hirwani is a former Indian leg spin bowler. Hirwani holds the Test record of bowling 59 overs unchanged without a break (other than for scheduled intervals), during a test match against England at The Oval in 1990.
