5 most mismanaged cricketers of recent times in international cricket
- 5 most mismanaged players in cricket - those who can contribute much more if their role in the team is changed
There have been certain names in cricket who promised a lot when they burst on to the international stage. But over time, team requirements or more often circumstances have forced them to consider what all they can contribute to their side.
Is it their batting skill or is it their captaincy which will be a better thing for the team? Would it matter more if they score more runs up the order or just hang around with the tail to give a good finish to the innings? Such questions have often led to altering the roles of players who would have initially liked to find themselves playing different ones.
Here are some players who showed great promise during early days of their career playing a specific role, but somehow went on doing something else as time progressed, and have overall performed a tad below their true potential (which was in batting for the names here).
They are all doing a great job for their sides, but one cannot help but wonder if they would have done better had their team managements found a better role for them in the scheme of things.
