Javagal Srinath

Javagal Srinath was one such player from India, who did not get as much recognition as he deserved. In the good old days, India’s fast bowling was not as great as it is today. Even in that period, Javagal Srinath along with Venkatesh Prasad destroyed the batting line-up of many opposing teams.

The Karnataka pacer made his debut in 1991 and took 315 wickets in 229 ODIs at an economy rate of 4.44. He also took 236 wickets in 67 Test matches. So, there is no doubt that Javagal Srinath could have proved to be a lethal bowler in the T20 format as well.

Mohammad Azharuddin

Former Indian cricket team captain Mohammad Azharuddin is anothe of those players who could have proven their worth in T20 cricket. The Hyderabad batsman showed his talent to the world by scoring three consecutive centuries in his first three Test matches.

Mohammad Azharuddin was very adept at flicking the ball and hitting it into the gap. In his career, he scored 6215 runs in 99 Test matches at an average of 45.03. At the same time, he also added 9378 runs in 334 ODIs at an average of 36.92.

The second Test match of the India-South Africa series held in 1996 was one of the best innings of Azharuddin’s career as he scored a century in just 74 balls, which is also one of the fastest centuries in Test history. In such a situation, there is no doubt that Mohammad Azharuddin could have also become a superstar of T20 cricket in the current era.
