Indian cricket has been on a rampage in the past few months. The team has been winning big across formats that has taken them to No.1 in Test and ODI rankings. A bunch of youngsters has emerged that has taken the game by storm. The team has been focusing on preparing a core team for the 2019 ODI World Cup and they have found plenty of options to choose from.
The emergence of youngsters has brought a bad news for the aging cricketers. There has been an increased importance being given to the fitness of the players. If the players are not fit enough, they are not considered for selection, the thing that has happened to a few veterans of late.
Here are the 5 players who might never play for India
#1 Yuvraj Singh
The hero of 2 World Cup victories has had a tough time of late. After recovering from cancer, he hadn’t been able to find a prominent place in the squad. He remained in and out of the side and his fitness wasn’t getting better at any stage. Although Yuvraj Singh made a stunning comeback to the ODI squad by smashing 150 in an ODI against England earlier this year, he couldn’t continue the form post that.
He last played for India on the tour to the Caribbean 2 months ago but didn’t look in a great nick. The left-hander was in the consideration for selection until the Sri Lanka tour. But he failed the fitness test prior to the selection and hence was omitted from the squad. The chances look bleak for the southpaw to make a return and we might have seen the last of Yuvraj in Indian colors.
