Cricketers from Punjab have served the nation since a long time and have contributed heavily in various departments. Take a look at the top ten cricketers from Punjab that have played for India.
#1. VRV Singh
A tall and muscular bowler with an imposing action, VRV Singh attracted eyeballs very early in his career. He was impressive during his U-19 years and left a mark in his first domestic season as he troubled batsmen with his raw pace.
Despite his inaccuracy and lack of fitness, Indian management roped him into the national team banking on his ability to deliver pace. He debuted against the West Indies in 2006 and bowled decently in his first outing.
However, his failure to up the ante and availability of other options ruled him out of the Test team and he has now become a mainstay in the domestic circuit.
VRV Singh featured in five Tests picking up eight wickets along with playing two ODIs.
