3 Players In Road Safety World Series Who Could’ve Still Played For Team India

1. Suresh Raina

He is currently just 35 years old and could have been a part of the national team if fortunes were on his side. However, fitness issues and others grabbing opportunities did not allow Raina to play for India after 2018.

Yusuf Pathan is another player on this list. Yusuf Pathan is among the top hard-hitting batsmen who have played for Team India. In inRoad Safety World Series 2022 too, he has smacked quickfire knocks in this season as well as the last season. Pathan was also part of the 2011 ODI World Cup winning squad.

In 57 ODIs, the right-handed batsman slammed 810 runs at an average of 27.0 and strike rate of 133+. In T20I, he smacked 236 runs in 22 games at a strike rate of 146+. He still owes the strength to smash big hits and if he had got the chance, he could have been a good lower-order batter for Team India at present.

Stuart Binny is another player on this list. In the opening game of Road Safety World Series 2022 against South Africa Legends, Binny slammed spectacular 82 runs off 42 balls. He also won the man of the match award for his astonishing knock. He could only play 14 ODIs and 3 T20Is for the national team. In ODIs, he scored 230 runs in 11 innings and picked 20 wickets. In T20Is, he scored 35 runs in 2 innings and picked 1 wicket.

Binny once picked 6 wickets for 4 runs in an ODI match against Bangladesh, and it is still the best bowling show by an Indian player in ODIs. Indian team today has a shortage of medium-pace all-rounders and Stuart Binny could have donned the role for the team if he had got more opportunities in his favour.
