In cricket, jersey numbers are not given much importance and do not tend to represent specific positioning abilities or skills as in football. Cricketers over the course of years have spotted many usual as well as stand-out jersey numbers and many believe in carrying their luck behind their back in the form of jersey numbers.
There have been a few cricketers who played for their teams with the most unusual jersey numbers on their back and they associate those numbers with their personal beliefs and likings.
Here's a list of 7 players who had their jersey number game on spot.
#1 Hardik Pandya – 228
The versatile Indian all-rounder is regarded as one of the best all-rounders in the current Indian side. Pandya made his debut for India against the Aussies and was a part of the young Indian side which whitewashed Australia in the T-20 series.
The Indian all-rounder in his debut series was spotted wearing the number 228 on the back of his jersey, which is his highest individual score in a cricket match. He scored 228 runs for his side Baroda in an Under-16 tournament and helped his team chase a score of above 350 from a struggling position of 23/4. Baroda went on to win the match on the basis of first innings lead.
