It is a big achievement for any cricketer to play for his team at the international level. It is every player's dream to play in the Indian team. But it is very difficult to be selected for the Indian team, and even more difficult is to maintain your place in the Indian team. Despite getting a place in the Indian team, there is strong competition from fellow players. Today we are going to tell you about the 4 players of the Indian team whose Test cricket career is almost over. But still, these players are not thinking of retiring.
Ishant Sharma is the best fast bowler on the Indian team, who has been running out of Team India for a long time. He was last seen playing in a Test against New Zealand in 2021. He could not take a single wicket in that match. After which he did not get a place on Team India. Now Ishant Sharma is left with the only way to retire.
Wriddhiman Saha is a great wicket-keeper batsman, but he did not get opportunities to play in India's Test team. In 2010, he made his Test debut against South Africa. Wriddhiman Saha is 37 years old, and the selectors have already made it clear that he will not be a part of the Indian team plan in the future. In Team India, all the doors of his return to the Indian team have been closed. Sannyasa is the only way for them.
Murali Vijay performed brilliantly for many years after making his Test debut in Team India. He was last seen playing in Team India on the Australia tour in 2018 and was shown the way out of the team for not performing well. It is not only difficult but impossible for 37-year-old Murali Vijay to make a place in India's Test team now.
Karun Nair scored a triple century against England in the test match played in Chennai. Then everyone felt that he would play for a long time in the Indian team. But he could not perform well after that. Karun Nair was last seen playing against Australia in 2017.
