Old Cricket Players – Some were rich in talent, while others could bring in crowds as pure entertainers. They were the Indian cricketers of the 80s and 90s who unfortunately missed the IPL. (Photo | EPS)

Kapil Dev: Perhaps India’s greatest, of all generations. India’s best swing bowler and a batsman who hits sixes as recklessly as chewing gum. He opens the bowling, a mid on and a single at the death. Of course, it will impress in style. Every team is reaching for the check book of ‘Haryana Cyclone’. (Photos | EPS and PTI)

Krishnamachari Srikanth: He was ahead of his time. A show-stopper, a crowd pleaser. He could hit Andy Roberts for a six, hit Patrick Patterson without a helmet and bowl in the 80s. It could have adjusted accordingly and perhaps CSK would have outshone every other franchise. (Why CSK? Because Tamil?) (Photos | EPS and PTI)

Vinod Kambli: A cricketer for the IPL, not just for his batting ability but also for his sexy glow that perfectly matches the majesty of today. With diamond studs, gold-plated belts and a sparkling personality, Hardik was Pandya multiplied by 10 in the 90s. The spin killer would have been a sleepless night for Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal. MI for Sachin Tendulkar and Kambli. Not the worst. (Photos | EPS and PTI)

Mohammad Azharuddin: Between 10 and 20 overs can be a nightmare for the bowlers. He knew how to find the gaps with ease and his footwork against spinners had to be trusted. In the case of a punt or extra coverage, he saves 15 points in each game. Not only that. When fitness was considered workable, Azhar excelled with his scorching runs between the wickets. Leader candidate and favorite at Eden Gardens. KKR can be your team. (Photos | EPS and PTI)

Ajay Jadeja: One of the smartest cricketers to ever play for India. He can accelerate the innings and be the man to finish the games like Mahendra Singh Dhoni did in his prime. Like Azhar, his agility on the field was exceptional. A good fielder can sometimes play with a few overs. A good pick for Delhi – be it Daredevils or Capitals. (Photos | AFP and PTI)

Manoj Prabhakar: Swinging the new ball and slower deliveries at the death, his utility may have been exactly what the IPL franchise was hoping for. Not exactly a big bat, but if you had a good bat at the other end, you could anchor the innings from one end. He is a good pick for Rajasthan Royals, a team where he can be more expressive.

Why Is The Indian Cricket Team Wearing Black Armbands?

Robin Singh: Another versatile player, could have invited intense bidding wars. A big batsman, a tight medium bowler and a solid fielder around the 30-yard circle, Robin is a go-to player for any captain. It could be home to Sunrisers Hyderabad, who build their team judiciously every year. (Photos | EPS and PTI)

Ravi Shastri: Hard left arm spinner, can bat anywhere, even as an opener, can spin for sixes. Shastri was the best ever captain of the Indian team – barring a few Tests and ODIs. In a parallel universe, he could be the captain of Chennai Super Kings with his cricket game. (Photos | EPS and PTI)

Maninder Singh: In his prime, Maninder had a fly, loop, trick and attack mindset. Left handed orthodox bowlers are a must in T20 cricket and his talent is sure to bear fruit. Kings XI Punjab can be a success. (Photo | EPS)

Javagal Srinath: India’s fastest bowler of his era, his pace, bounce and consistent inside movement was every captain’s dream. Gives you an early win more than once. He could be the real deal for RCB in Chinnaswamy. Virat Kohli has missed Indian fast bowling all these years. (Photos | EPS and PTI)

Sreesanth was initially a leg-spinner in his childhood, whose exploits were modeled after India’s leading Test wicket-taker, Anil Kumble, who went on to become Test captain. However, the yorker’s bowling habit changed to fast bowling after being encouraged by his elder brother.

Following in the footsteps of fellow Kerala fast bowler Tinu Yohannan, who was inducted into the National Cricket Academy in 2000, Sreesanth was inducted into the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai. He made his first-class debut against Goa in the 2002–03 domestic season and took 22 wickets in seven Ranji Trophy matches.

He was selected in the India-A team for a tour match in Rajkot against the touring New Zealand team. He took one wicket in twelve runs after suffering a hamstring injury. He also missed five Ranji Trophy matches that season but still traveled with the team for overseas matches. There were rumors that an astrologer had convinced him to take a break from competition to preserve his longevity in the sport, and Sreesanth was certain that he would die only to regain his fitness.

In November 2004, Sreesanth broke a record with a hat-trick against Himachal Pradesh in a Ranji Trophy match.

In October 2005, he was selected to represent India B in the Challenger Trophy, a domestic limited-overs tournament.

He had an outstanding performance in the tournament, winning the man of the tournament award and being the highest wicket-taker with the third best bowling average (7).

It was in the first ODI match against Sri Lanka in Nagpur. After being punished early by Kumar Sangakkara and Sanath Jayasuriya, Sreesanth came back to claim his first two ODI wickets in the closing stages.

But he did not play in the 5-match series against South Africa, but he played all five matches of the Pakistan tour, taking 4/58 in the fifth ODI against the Pakistan cricket team in Karachi. A good home series against Gland in April 2006, where he took 10 wickets at an average of 16.3, including a best of 6/55 in the final at Indore (where he won the man of the match award [1] ]),
