The name Joginder Sharma might be out of the news now, but who can forget his last over against Pakistan in 2007. He got the wicket of Misbah-ul-Haq, handing India their maiden T20 World Cup Trophy.

The Haryana born cricketer made his ODI debut for India in 2004 as an all-rounder. In his second match, he made a fiery 22-ball 29 down the order against Bangladesh, ensuring India's victory.

He was then axed from the squad due to his inconsistent returns. He made a comeback in later years, but disappeared after playing some matches.

#3 Rishi Dhawan

The flamboyant Himachal Pradesh cricketer Rishi Dhawan is also one of those Indian all-rounders who faded away after a promising start. The medium-pacer who bats down the order debuted for India in 2016 after some fantastic domestic numbers.

But he only appeared in a handful of matches for India before fading from the scene. The 28-year-old played for various franchises in IPL and kept himself in the limelight. However, after Hardik Pandya took over, he failed to get any more chances.
