A revolution happened in Indian cricket in the year 2008 when the inaugural season of Indian Premier League was played. It changed the game forever. Plenty of players who were unknown in the country were now playing alongside the giants of the game from all parts of the world. Over the years, it became a breeding ground for youngsters who got a platform to showcase their talents.

Plenty of youngsters who did well in the IPL went on to represent their national sides. Indian cricket benefitted the most from the league as it found numerous young talents capable of battling it out amongst the best. However, there were some players who caught the limelights by their performances in the T20 league and made it to the Indian side but they couldn’t replicate the same at the big stage.

Here are 5 such players who did well in IPL but didn’t last long in the international arena

#1 Saurabh Tiwary

The left-handed batsman caught the eyes after his dream run for Mumbai Indians where he won so many matches for the franchise. In 2010, he won the Emerging Player award as well for scoring 419 runs in 16 matches. Due to this run, he was picked in the Indian squad for the Asia Cup in 2010 but didn’t feature in the playing XI in any of the games.

He made his debut against Australia later that year where he scored unbeaten 12 runs. Tiwary played just 2 more ODIs aggregating 49 career runs and since then, he has been missing from the thick of things. Hailing from Jharkhand, the southpaw was once being dubbed as the next Dhoni for his similarities¬†with the former Indian captain. But he faded away too soon and even in the IPL seasons that followed, he couldn’t repeat the heroics.
