Cricket being the most popular sport in India, cricketers are one of the most celebrated people in the nation. Hence, a majority of upcoming athletes in the sport assume cricketers as their role models growing up and want to imbibe their skills and qualities. But there is an abundant number of people in India wanting to be cricketers, but not all get a chance to make it to the top.
Thus, they use their skills and translate them to shatter records and accumulate numbers for some other team. While the lack of opportunities are not the only reason, family or other unavoidable causes could also cause a player to shift to some other nation and hone their talent. There are several notable Indian origin cricketers, who went on to ply their trade for some other country.
We take a look at ten such cricketers of Indian origin but played for some other country:
Hashim Amla remains one player who the Indians will have wanted in their ranks. While Hashim Amla endured a forgettable debut, the right-handed batsman staged a remarkable comeback by working on his game in the domestic circuit. Amla is the fastest batsman to reach 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, and 7000 runs in ODI cricket.
The former South African captain, belonging to Surat, Gujarat, remains the only Proteas cricketer to slam a triple-hundred in Test cricket. Amla retired from international cricket in 2019, featuring in 124 Tests, 181 ODIs, and 44 T20Is. But the 38-year old continues to play in the English domestic circuit.
