Tornadoes behind the storm : Top Guys who missed WC11

“ To make it count, you need to step up and shout.”

Indeed in the vast world of sports to make yourself visible amidst the over-powering crowd of sportsmen loaded with talent and affiliations, one must indeed be a perfect opportunist, consistent, and should be able to step the gas on when the thing gets down to the wire.

It is often noticed that despite having a descent and consistent record in domestic circuit, there are some stars that play the role of undercover heroes. Time has come to unleash the list of some stars that have been performing consistently but yet not have been noticed in the cricketing arena. Here are some heroes uncovered here as they deserve it. The players here have either been dropped or not picked for the current ongoing WC squads by their respective teams.
