5 Overhyped Indian Cricketers. There has always been a set of cricketers who get plenty of chances in the team despite their inconsistent performances and their potential might be a good reason for it. However, they cannot travel with the national team for a long time without performing and they should be set a limit for the opportunities.
Performances and potential might be different at times and they should be assessed in the right way. There have been a lot of players who have fired at the second stage of their careers however, some players do get the overrated tag.

The likes of Ambati Rayudu, Mayank Agarwal, Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav, Ajinkya Rahane, Shivam Dube, Manish Pandey, Ishant Sharma, Krunal Pandya have either wasted talent or were praised too much but couldn’t live up to expectations.
The likes of Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, Jaydev Unadkat, and Prithvi Shaw are some of the overhyped players who have been praised but haven’t been picked in the Indian team much despite consistent performances in the domestic circuit.
5 Overhyped Indian Cricketers
1. Shivam Dube
Facing Bangladesh on 3 November 2019, Shivam Dube earned his T20I debut for India. The series landed him a comparison with Yuvraj Singh but as of now, it turned out to be an utter flop comparison made by the cricket pundits.
Shivam Dube has featured in only 1 ODI and 13 T20Is averaging less than 20 in both formats and has picked only 5 scalps in T20Is averaging over 40 with the ball. He played only 1 ODI against West Indies on December 2019, while his last T20I came against New Zealand in February 2020.
