Indian cricket witnessed the immense strength of youngsters in the Border-Gavaskar Test series 2020-21. Young talent like Shubman Gill, Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj, and Rishabh Pant came to the forefront to defeat the mighty Australians on their home soil in the Test series.
With the emergence of such new talented youngsters in the Test teams, few Indian cricketers should consider retiring from Test cricket as their comeback is highly unlikely to happen. Here we look at five such Indian cricketers whose comeback in Test cricket is nearly impossible.
5 Indian Cricketers Who Should Retire From Tests With Comeback Nearly Impossible
Although Harbhajan Singh was recently active as a commentator, he is missing on the field in the Indian jersey for a long time. Harbhajan Singh was once the leading spin bowler for India in Tests, however, the off-break bowler lost his spot to Ravichandran Ashwin over the years. Ravindra Jadeja’s commendable bowling ability in Tests has made him a bonus option in the team as a secondary spinner.
Although Harbhajan has not announced retirement from Tests, his comeback is almost impossible. He last played a Test match during India’s tour of Sri Lanka in 2015, where the 40-year-old spinner was dropped after the first Test. He could only grab one wicket in the 1st Test game which India lost by 63 runs, due to which he was dropped from the series. The right-arm off-break bowler has failed to make it in India’s Test squad ever-since, and his return to Test cricket is almost impossible.
