Cricket is a game of uncertainties not only in the other aspect of it as well. There have been times when many promising cricketers made their international debut for India but they disappeared from the frame in no time and were never seen again in the frame. There are a lot of examples of this in the past including some names like opening batter Devang Gandhi and a promising player from Punjab Reetinder Singh Sodhi.

Although, there are also such players in the current time who has made their international debut for India in the recent few years. But there are the high chances they may have played their last international matches as well and might not be seen again on the national side of the Indian cricket team.

So, here we’ll have a look at five players who might not get a chance to play their next international match for team India.

The 29-year-old all-rounder impressed everyone with some of his stellar outings in the Indian T20 League. He made his first international appearance for India three years back in 2019 against Bangladesh in a T20I. Since then, he has donned the Indian jersey in 13 T20 internationals and only one ODI.

Shivam Dube could score only nine runs in his only One-Day international appearance and couldn’t scalp any wicket in the match with the ball. Other than this, he has scored only 105 runs with the bat in 13 T20I with a very low average of 17.50 having one half-century to his name. He has also scalped five wickets with the ball in T20Is.

Looking at the number of capable all-rounders in the team currently, there are very high chances that Shivam may have played his last international match for India.
