4. Shoaib Malik
Shoaib Malik appeared as a 17-year-old against West Indies in 1999. He came into the team simply as a spinner and was at number eleven in the batting graph. He proceeded to become a handyman as his batting got due recognition when he was promoted the order.
3. Rangana Herath
Very few would recollect a specific Rangana Herath appearing against Australia path in 1999. Muttiah Muralitharan, Sri Lanka’s bowling mainstay for such a significant number of years evidently shadowed a left-arm finger spinner in Rangana Herath. The 40-year-old showed up in 2004, 2008 and, 2010, however could not bond a spot in the Test side until the point when Murali considered it a day.
2. Chris Gayle
The T20 cricket supremo made his international debut much before his most loved format was even conceived. He is the Sachin Tendulkar of T20 cricket and holds every one of the records accessible in the smaller than expected format. He has been giving sporadic appearances in ODIs and T20Is recently and the 2019 Cricket World Cup may well close shades on his international career.
- Harbhajan Singh
Since 2012, Harbhajan Singh in the side had always been in jeopardy with Jadeja and Ashwin forming an alliance in Tests and alternatives immersing in the ODI and T20I circuit. Bhajji’s last international appearance returned in 2016 of a T20 fixture against UAE. With his continued presence in the IPL, the 38-year-old must be expecting to make a comeback to the T20I side and likely say goodbye at the 2020 World T20 in Australia.
