Team India: There are 3 players of Team India, whose Test career is almost over and the doors of the Indian Test team are also seen closed for them, but they have not announced their retirement yet. Let’s take a look at these 3 players:
1. Shikhar Dhawan
In the year 2013, Shikhar Dhawan scored a century in his debut match against Australia, but he was dropped from the team due to poor form during the 2018 tour of England. Talking about Dhawan’s Test career, he has played 34 Tests for India so far and has scored 2315 runs with an average of 40.61. During this, 7 more centuries and 5 half-centuries have been seen with his bat. His high score is 190 runs. Dhawan is now 36 years old and there is no vacancy for him as an opener in Test cricket and now there is little hope of playing again in Test cricket.
2. Murali Vijay
Since making his Test debut for India, Murali Vijay has performed brilliantly for Team India for many years. Murali Vijay was last part of the Indian cricket team on the 2018 tour of Australia, but Murali Vijay did not manage to perform well on that tour and that is why he was dropped from the team. Let us tell you that Murali Vijay made his Test debut against Australia in November 2008 and played his last match for Australia in December 2018. Talking about Murali Vijay’s Test career, he has added 3982 runs in 61 Test matches at an average of 38.29. During this, 12 centuries and 15 half-centuries were scored with his bat. The 37-year-old Murali can now make a place in the team, there is little hope of it. The main reason for this is that he is not even playing domestic cricket.
3. Karun Nair
When Karun Nair scored a triple century against England in Chennai, then it seemed that Karun Nair was a horse of a long race, but it was not seen. After scoring a triple century, he could not succeed in performing well, so he was dropped from the team. Karun Nair made his Test debut against England in November 2016 and after that he was last seen playing against Australia in March 2017. He has played only 6 Test matches in his career and has scored 374 runs at an average of 62.33. His high score in Test is 303 runs.
