IPL History: 5 famous cricketers who we may not know once played in the IPL
- Many might not know that legends like Darren Lehmann and Damien Martyn have played in the IPL
#4 Damien Martyn (Australia)
Damien Martyn was a right-handed batsman. He is considered as one of the most technically sound batsman and an excellent athlete in the field. Nicknamed Marto, Damien Martyn had an excellent stat with the bat and played some crucial knocks for his national side in ODIs. In spite of owning enourmous amount of expertise, Martyn had a hard time with the bat post 2006. His form was in doubt and selectors didn't take a look on him after that.
However, Martyn was picked up by the Rajasthan Royals franchise in 2010. But the Australian failed to utilize the only opportunity he got and had to sit in the dugout throughout the tournament. Even Rajasthan Royals failed to perform well in the tournament and finished 7th on the points table.
Despite having immense talent in his armoury, Damien Martyn belongs to a category of most underrated cricketers in World Cricket.
