Indian cricket has always been blessed with prodigious talents over the years; those who have successfully managed to successfully breach the gap between domestic cricket and international cricket by consistently delivering one brilliant performance after another.
But, amidst all this, there have been a plethora of Indian cricketers who didn’t manage to build on the momentum and faded away after one magical performance.
Here’s a look at five Indian cricketers who are remembered for just one performance:
Ajay Ratra was one of the many wicket-keepers that Indian Cricket tried after the retirement of Nayan Mongia and before the emergence of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
He was one of the six wicket-keepers that the national selectors tried within a space of 12 months in the 2001-02 season. Ratra, wh made his international debut at Eden Gardens during the 2002 ODI series against England, went on to become the youngest wicket-keeper to score a Test hundred during his maiden series against the West Indies at St. Johns in Antigua.
However, Ratra’s tryst with inconsistency continued and he was soon dropped from the set-up after the succeeding Test series in England.
