Old Cricket Players – Some are rich in talent, some are mavericks and some are pure entertainers who manage to bring the crowd. These are the Indian cricketers of the 80s and 90s who were unfortunate to miss out on the gravy train known as the IPL. (Photo | EPS)

Kapil Dev: Perhaps India’s greatest all-rounder of all generations. India’s best swing bowler and a batsman who hit sixes as brazenly as he chewed gum. He would open the bowling and bowl one over in the middle and one over at the death. And of course he scored sixes in style. All the teams reached for their check books for ‘Haryana Hurricane’.

Krishnamachari Srikanth: He was a batsman ahead of his time. A show-stopper, a crowd-pleaser. He could pull Andy Roberts for a six, hook Patrick Patterson without a helmet and score in the 80s on a run-a-ball. He could have adjusted accordingly and CSK would have surpassed every other franchise. (Why CSK? Because he is Tamil?) (Photo | EPS and PTI)

Cricketers Who Left Their Country And Joined Usa

Vinod Kambli: A cricketer made for the IPL, not just for his batting prowess but also for his sartorial flamboyance which goes well with the current gentrification. A fiery personality with diamond studs, gold-plated belts and a game to match bravado, he was Hardik Pandya multiplied by 10 in the 90s. A killer of spinners Kuldeep Yadav or Yuzvendra Chahal used to spend sleepless nights. Sachin Tendulkar and Kambli for MI. Not so bad. (Photo | EPS and PTI)

Mohammad Azharuddin: Between 10 and 20 overs, he was a nightmare for bowlers. He knows how to find holes with ease and his footwork against spinners should look convincing. At punt or extra coverage, he would have saved 15 runs in each game. That’s not all. When fitness was considered right, Azhar stood out with his scintillating runs between the wickets. A captaincy candidate and Eden Gardens favourite. KKR can be his team. (Photo | EPS and PTI)

Ajay Jadeja: One of the most brilliant cricketers to have played for India. He can accelerate an innings and is also someone who can finish matches like Mahendra Singh Dhoni did in his prime. Like Azhar, his agility on the field is exceptional. An excellent fielder, he can chip in a few overs as well. Good choice for Delhi – daredevils or capitals. (Photo | AFP and PTI)

Manoj Prabhakar: Swinging the new ball and delivering slower deliveries in the death overs, his utility is what IPL franchises are looking for. Not exactly a big hitter, but with a good batsman at one end he can anchor an innings. A good choice for Rajasthan Royals, the team where he can express himself the most. (Photo | EPS and PTI)

Robin Singh: Another all-rounder could invite intense bidding wars. A big hitter, a solid medium-pace bowler and a solid fielder in the 30-yard circle, Robin could be any captain’s ‘go-to’ player. Sunrisers Hyderabad, who build their team smartly every year, could be his home. (Photo | EPS and PTI)

Ravi Shastri: Solid left arm spin bowling, ability to bat in all positions including as an opener, he can hit spinners for sixes. Shastri is the best captain the Indian team has ever had – save one Test and a few ODIs. In a parallel universe, he captained the Chennai Super Kings with his cricketing. (Photo | EPS and PTI)

Maninder Singh: In his prime, Maninder had everything from escape, loop, deception and attack mentality. Left-arm orthodox bowlers are sorely needed in T20 cricket and his talent is sure to be rewarded. He was a hit for Kings XI Punjab. (Photo | EPS)

Javagal Srinath: India’s fastest bowler of his era, he was every captain’s dream with his pace, bounce and constant internal movement. He provided the early breakthrough on more than one occasion. He could have been the real deal for RCB in Chinnaswamy. Virat Kohli is the Indian pacer who has been missing all these years. (Photo | EPS and PTI)

The tragic life story of Indian cricketer Janardhan Gyanoba Nawle, who died in extreme poverty. Nawle also played for the Indians in 1926-27 with Arthur Gilligan’s MCC team and nine years later with Jack Ryder’s Australians.

Cricket has now become a well paid sport as international cricketers are now earning millions. The respective cricket boards also take care of the players after retirement, but this is not always the case and many cricketers have struggled with extreme poverty in the past. One such Indian cricketer is Janardhan Gyanoba Nawle.

Long Silence Awaits Banned Heath Streak And Cricket’s Condemned Corruptors

Janardhan Gyanoba Nawle was India’s first Test wicket-keeper and his name went down in history as the player who faced the first ball for India in the first Test against England at Lord’s on 25 June 1932. Navel played two Tests for India and played a total of 65 first-class matches, scoring 42 and 1976 runs respectively.

Wisden called Navle “a first-class wicket-keeper, everything he did was very quick”. Knowle also played with Arthur Gilligan’s MCC team in 1926–27 and Jack Ryder’s Australians nine years later. Nave also played for the Hindus in the Bombay Quadrangular and Pentangular tournaments. He made his debut for the Hindus at the age of 16

Navle retired from cricket in 1950 and spent his last days working as a security guard in a sugar factory. Navle is said to have lived in a small apartment in Poona. Some reports claim that Nawle died in extreme poverty and was found begging on the Bombay-Poona highway. Navle died on 7 September 1979 in Poona.

The irony of the former Zimbabwe captain’s case is that the fixers used his care for the match against him.

It’s June 2015 and I’m attending a principal’s study at Christchurch Boys’ High School and listening to famous New Zealand athletes who have attended there. Dan Carter, Brady Retallick, Andrew Mehrtens, Owen Franks, Aaron Mauger, Steve Hansen, Graham Henry. His fingers ran out and he didn’t even start the cricketers – Richard Hadley, Chris Martin, Tom Latham, Corey Anderson. “And the other, the most famous,” he paused, “only, we don’t talk about him much here.” He stopped again. Finally the colleague cut in: “Chris Cairns”.

As I recall, there was much left unsaid in the long, awkward silence. Anger, shame, even a little embarrassment. He is a proud man who runs a proud school.

Cairns was not actually guilty of fixing. He was acquitted on charges of perjury and perverting the course of justice. But he was refuted by the testimony of colleagues Lou Vincent and Brendon McCullum. After such knowledge, what forgiveness? Many men who get caught find their way back to the game. Mohammad Amir is still playing, pity himself. Retired from international cricket. Mohammad Asif plays club matches in Norway and the USA. Salman Butt works as a Pandit in Pakistan. Danish Kaneria is a veteran Twenty20 player. Mohammad Ashraful is back to play first class cricket.

Vincent runs a backyard club for local children in the Waikato using his old kit. He still hopes to convince the authorities to lift his lifetime ban. What else will you do when your betrayal means they take away the game you gave your life to? However, Cairns has spent the years since living in Canberra: “I was completely burnt out, completely burnt out.” He keeps a low profile, asks less, less
