The Indian cricket team has performed brilliantly in the Test format all around the world. India has always maintained an envious record in the home Test matches. However, in foreign countries also, King Kohli and his company have gained their forms creating some prestigious records.

Talking about their teamwork, the Indian guys have maintained their unity well. But when the talk comes to individual performances, only 2-3 names lead that chart. Out of that, the two major names are Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara. They both have carried the team to a new whole level in Test cricket.

But there are a plethora of other matured and experienced players also who have constantly failed to make their mark in the longest format of the game. Test cricket is a format which demands huge patience and stability which seems to have been lacking in those players.

Despite giving chances to them, their continuous failures have always invited troubles for the selection committee as the talented young guns are already warming the bench. Hence there are five such players from the Indian side whose Test career seems to be on the verge of extinction.

#1 Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh is one such cricketer whose career dwindled between cricket and cancer. The guy who smashed six sixes in an over could not continue his same old form after cancer. Cancer completely spoiled Yuvraj Singh’s career or else he was all set to become the next greatest thing for India in the cricketing world.

Nicknamed as Yuvi, Yuvraj Singh entered into the world of Test cricket as a star player on 16 October 2003 against the mighty New Zealand side. However, the year 2011 became the turning point of his career as he was diagnosed with cancer. He has so far played 40 Test matches scoring 1900 runs at an average of 33.92 runs.

Yuvi played his last Test match in the year 2012 and after that, he wasn’t seen wearing the white jersey again for his nation. Hence, considering his poor form and no place in the Test squad, his career seems to have ended.
