4 Unlucky Cricketers Dominated by Contemporary Legends

Not every person with the talent of playing cricket can become a famous and successful cricketer. Sad but a true fact! Luck plays an important part in every sports person’s life. But the saddest misfortune happens with cricketers whose talent get overshadowed by some contemporary legendary player. However, many such players have made good place for themselves in online fantasy cricket leagues later.  

But it’s sad when we think about the brighter prospects of their career in case they wouldn’t be outshone by the legendary cricketers. It’s merely coincidence that at the same time some outstanding performers moved into the same team. There are many, however these 4 needs a special mention.  

Dinesh Karthik 

For fantasy cricket in India, Dinesh Karthik is undoubtedly a known name. In spite of being talented his timing was bad. The time when Dinesh Karthik was trying to make a mark for himself, MS Dhoni came into the picture. From the moment Dhoni got into the Indian cricket team, all eyes remain fixated on his striking performance. Even when Dhoni retired from the tests, selectors took Wriddhiman instead of Karthik! Although he has 263 runs in three test matches against England in 2007, however things didn’t turn out to be great for the cricketer.  

Mohammed Kaif 

If you’re an ardent cricket fan, that there was a time when you would have surely hard the name of Kaif quiet a few times. There are two major memories of Kaif’s perfor4mance in the mind of people. One was the winning moment in the Natwest Tri-series final and the other was the great fielding partnership with Yuvraj Singh. However, he couldn’t make it among the big ones. Because at the same time the versatile names like Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar was already on a winning spree! The dream of Kaif to make it to the top remained a dream forever!  

Brad Hodge 

From 1990 to 2000, the Australian cricket team had the strongest batting line up. This smashing Victorian player was one of the gems in the team. However, he was not selected by the selectors for a long time. It’s not that his performance was not upto the mark. However, his performances were covered by the other promising players of the team. He thus announced an early retirement in 2008. If things would have been different, then surely this person would have been a favorite player in fantasy cricket games.  

Stuart MacGill 

The name of MacGill would have been counted among the best spinners of Australian team if only his ear did not clash with that of Shane Warne. Even after Warne’s retirement the spinner couldn’t make it big in the team. His best scores were 8?108 against Bangladesh in the year 2005. However, when time came for MacGill to show off his skills, it was too late and demotivation had already taken a toll over his career graph. However, he was a team player and added invaluably to the winnings of Australian cricket team till the time he was in the team.

This Sri Lankan cricketer is a popular name in international cricket. But did you know that he is originally a Muslim by birth? Difficult to ascertain as his name doesn’t suggest the same. However, his original name was Tuwan Mohammad Dilshan and his father was from a Malay group. However, from 1999, he started following the trends of Buddhism. It’s been a news that Dilshan’s mother was a follower of Buddhism from the very beginning. Thus, it was always in his blood. By embracing Buddhism, he decided to change his name. Indeed, a fun fact for the fantasy sports lover!  

Mansur Ali Khan Pataudi 

The well-known cricketer who was popularly called Tiger Pataudi was initially not called as Mansur. He was actually by birth the Junior Nawab of Pataudi family and hence by ritual was known as Nawab of Pataudi Junior. He became the youngest captain of the Indian cricket team in 1961 and for 10 years he played with this name. After that to abide by the changing government rules, he changed his name to Mansur. Since then, this dashing batsman made a special place in the hearts of millions of fans.

Fantasy Cricket Games – 4 Talented Cricketers Overshadowed by Popular Teammates

Looking back at the history of cricket, it is very clear that over the years there have been cricketers whose popularity had been overshadowed to some extent by another brilliant contemporary player in the team! Although there’s no doubt about the competency of any of them, however sometimes the other one takes up the limelight!  

Call it bad luck or unfair turn of events, in spite of winning millions of hearts, some these cricketers have never quiet been able to come out of the shadows. However, while playing fantasy cricket, popularity doesn’t matter. It’s the performance of the players that will help you win cash in such online fantasy games.  

Brian Lara vs Shivnarine Chanderpaul 

Whenever discussion crops up regarding these two players, there’s always a debate regarding who is better! One is a master class performer, while the other is the most attentive player in the team. Lara managed to pull out thousands of runs effortlessly. However, the same cant be commented about Chanderpaul. He might have been having lots of runs in his bucket, however he was not a pleasing batsman. Rather in comparison to Lara, he was a more consistent player. Alas, his consistency was overshadowed by Lara’s terrific performance.  

Virat Kohli vs Rohit Sharma 

This debate is a controversial one. The fan base of Virat Kohli is equal to that of Rohit Sharma. However, for non-cricket fans Virat Kohli is more popular than Rohit Sharma. Popularity is the kick word here! If you judge them on the basis of their performance, then it’s very difficult to assign the number 1 position to either of them. Again, like the all-other couples mentioned in this list, Virat is a more striking player and fastest scorer in comparison to Rohit. Rohit on the other hand is a consistent one. So, despite being almost at par with Kohli, Sharma’s talent has always been overshadowed.  

Sachin Tendulkar vs Rahul Dravid 

The dependable man – whenever you see the Karnataka cricketer in the Indian team, you will surely relate this title with him. Rahul Dravid was undoubtedly the most consistent player in the team and the burden of getting Indian team out from any tricky situation rested completely on this cool-headed player. However, that was the time when India also got one of the finest cricketers of the lot – Sachin Tendulkar. With 100 international centuries to his name, Sachin’s performance overshadowed the likes of many! Rahul Dravid being one of them! Fantasy cricket in India would have attained more popularity if they would have been playing presently.  

Dale Steyn vs Morne Morkel 

Steyn was the most aggressive, consistent and highest-ranked bowler of the test matches. His bowling ability has taken him up to the greatest heights in his career. However, in that same team, Morne Morkel was also performing as one of the best bowlers. His career graph is adorned with a lot of award-winning performances. There’ve been many instances when the batsmen have been in fear from Morkel. However, this talented man remains in the low limelight for a lot of time in his career.

Fantasy Cricket Facts: 5 Popular Cricketers Representing Two Countries

With the starting of IPL the trend of shuffling players of different countries into different teams have become a popular concept. Furthermore, you can also get your favorite player from the Australian or West Indies to play for your fantasy cricket in India by including them in the eleven. However, did you know that in reality there are a few players who have actually played for two countries?  

In countries like India, Australia, England there are abundance of talent. Hence, majority of the players play for home country but they also play for other countries as well. There are times when some of them have been compelled to take such decisions. Again, there are situations where due to lack of good opportunities they have been forced to play for some other country.  

Players of fantasy cricket leagues get confused on such cases at times. They keep on forgetting the country where the person is belonging from. To keep you updated, here’s a list of some notable players. 

Jofra Archer 

This man has represented both West Indies and England proved to be an outstanding player for both the teams. Undoubtedly a talented and promising player when we started playing for U19 in West Indies. However, everyone though his smashing career has come to and end because of a sudden injury that he suffered. But later fate took a turn and he retuned with a bang! His talent in the Big Bash League got noticed and he joined England’s National team. Rest is history! He is undoubtedly the most popular choice for fantasy cricket players when it comes to any leagues.  

Eoin Morgan 

Whenever you see Morgan, definitely the first thing that strikes your mind is that he an Irish cricketer. Undoubtedly that’s a true fact! The limited over captain for England had played for Ireland previously. At U17 and U19, he had represented the Ireland’s team. Since he was born there hence at the initial stage, he played for the home team. In 2007 when Ireland defeated Pakistan, Morgan was still a part of the team. However, he was selected into England’s team in 2010 and from then there was no stopping him. Whether Ireland or England – country is no bar for Morgan’s popularity in playing fantasy cricket games.  

Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi  

Fondly known as Tiger Pataudi, this man was one of the most loved Indian captain. But did you know a fun fact? While studying at the oxford, he used play for Sussex. Later he came back to India, after meeting with an accident which damaged his right eye. However, this was not the end of his cricketing career, rather he made India win 9 tests as a successful captain. Call it the turn of fortunes, the came back of Pataudi was a major gain for the Indian cricket team.  

Imran Tahir 

For those who have seen Tahir playing, must have witnessed his iconic celebration feat that he positively takes after every wicket. For U19 leagues, Tahir had played for Pakistan which is the home country of the player. However, his national career was molded by his entry into the South African cricket team from 2011 to 2019. Investigating the major reason behind such change shows that among the large number of good spinners in the Pakistan team, Tahir lost his place. But he was smart and didn’t let the same defeat his dream of becoming a cricketer! Since the South African team lacks good quality spinners, hence Tahir’s contribution into the team made him stand out in the crowd.  

Kepler Wessels 

 Rugby was the game which was more popular than cricket in Africa. Kepler Wessels was an exceptional African who preferred playing cricket and not rugby. During the 1980s and 1990s, while he continued his career as a cricketer,  Wessels played for both South Africa and Australia. In 1991, Wessels was elected as the captain of the South African team. Although his ODI performance was criticized since a long time, however, he had been successful in all respects.

Kevin Pietersen 

In spite of having a successful cricket team in South Africa. Kevin preferred to join the England’s team and played as a batsman from 2004 to 2014. Initially, Pietersen had played for his country, that’s South Africa. However, from 2004 he became a permanent member of the England team. However, if you’re wondering about his English connection, then be clear that his mother is an English woman. In 2010, when England won the ICC world twenty20, Pietersen was declared as the player of the entire tournament.  

Andrew Strauss

Andrew Symonds 

The hard-hitter and all-rounder Australian cricketer doesn’t have Aussie blood in his veins. Rather, Symonds originally belongs to England. This all-rounder player is undoubtedly a gift to the Australian team. He had moved to Queensland at a very young age and played for the Australian cricket team from 1998 to 2009. Although later he retired from cricket to spend some quality time with his family, however during his tenure, he made Australia an unbeatable team. 

Eoin Morgan 

The current captain of the England cricket team, this man was born near England but not in England! Although a well-known fact for all fantasy cricket gamers, however for the novice people, Morgan was born in Ireland. He was named the captain of England in 2014 and holds the record for the fastest fifties in ODI during the 2019 world cup. Unlike the other players, Morgan has been able to successfully play for both England and Ireland at the same time.  

Sikandar Raza 

Imagine a Pakistan born player playing for Zimbabwe. Sikandar Raza was originally born in Sialkot, Pakistan and started playing for the domestic cricket team from a very early age.
