Cricket can get a little too nostalgic at times and especially during the quarantine period. Looking back at the times when fantasy cricket wasn’t there, we still had empty roads with people gathered on the corners of the street watching Sachin Tendulkar score a hundred. Those were the days and till date we wish we had a few players still playing for their countries and entertaining fans around the world.
BalleBaazi takes a look back and tries to make sure that you get maximum dose of cricket even when we do not have much fantasy cricket going on.
Here are Top 5 Fantasy Cricket Picks we wish were still playing:
Why not start with one of the best all rounders world cricket has ever produced? Our one and only Baazigar! Yes, well let us just face it, Yuvi Paa deserved a much better send off than he got back in 2019. Yes, he might not have been in the best of forms but should have played prior to the Cricket World Cup 2019 especially after his 150 against England in 2017. If Yuvraj Singh was still playing, it would have been a treat to watch him in the blue jersey number 12.
One of the most unfortunate ways to say farewell to the game that you love could have happened to one and only Mark Boucher. The legendary wicket-keeper from South Africa was not only one of the best behind the stumps but had absolute genius batting skills when it came to finishing the game for his country. It’s a pity that Mark had to leave the game in the way he was forced to retire after a stump-bale hit his eyeball costing him dearly.
The wall of the Indian Cricket team, Mr Cool, Mr Dependable and what not! Rahul Sharad Dravid had everything in him in what could have made a complete cricketing legend. Master at his work, Rahul had an impeccable record scoring over 13000 runs in test cricket and over 10,000 in One-day international cricket. Wish we could go back in time and watch his iconic square cuts back again.
The ace English cricketer with one of the most unique batting stances in world cricket, KP deserved to have a longer cricketing career than he could manage. After becoming a casualty of the Ashes 2013-14, Kevin had to bid farewell to world sport while playing here and there in the T20 leagues round the word. With over 8000 test runs and 104 test matches, KP could have easily played a little longer and provided more value to the game.
The best wicket keeper in the world of cricket ever: Adam Gilchrist did not get the best of farewells as he would have imagined. After being thumped by India in their home ground, Australia lost the commonwealth bank series of 2010-11 and it just happened to be Adam’s farewell game. Gilly was a swashbuckling southpaw and a genuine entertainer. With his sportsmanship and talent, he won many hearts. We would have been lucky to see more of Gilchrist right through his career considering the modern style of cricket.
