5 Indian cricketers who were picked based on IPL performances but failed
- Not all players picked on the basis of their IPL performances were a success. Here are five that weren't.
#4 Sudeep Tyagi
There are always perks to being on the same side as the national team captain, whether it is always being on the background should an opportunity come up or being given the perfect platform to perform and gain international recognition. Sudeep Tyagi certainly made the most of that as he came back from a stress fracture that ruled him out of the 2008 IPL and made an impact for the Chennai Super Kings in the second season.
Although he was on the India A side, his delivery to AB de Villiers, which uprooted the Proteas batsmen's stumps in the 2009 season, was what brought international fame. Although he wasn't among the wickets regularly for CSK, his ability to keep things tight and open the bowling meant he was a good seaming option for India.
That call-up came in the ODIs against Sri Lanka in India. Although he had a forgettable T20I debut against Sri Lanka in December 2009, which turned out to be his only match in the format, he got four ODI matches. It all started brightly as he finished with figures of 6.3-1-15-1.
But unfortunately, that was as good as it good as he only picked up two more wickets in his remaining three ODI matches and hasn't played for India since February 2010.Published 21 Feb 2016, 15:26 IST
