Dharmani,Muzumdar,Sharath,Sriram & Kale are current players with the
HIGHEST batting avgs in the top 10 list in the history of WORLD
cricket, but never had a chance to play Test cricket. All of 5 are
middle order batsmen from India and avgs are 51+.
very unfortunate bunch of folks indeed. then again, they are also the
contempararies of Tendulkar,Dravid and Laxman. SRT and Dravid already
ATGs and Laxman with very superior batting avgs in domestic cricket
(and very reasonable in Test cricket) , the other folks had to miss
out. very understandable indeed.
But there are who argue that these 5 were much better than another
batsman who played 10+ years of Test for India in the same period.
certainly the stats indicate the Indian Test team would have been
better with one of these guys than an ex-captain named SG with a FC
batting avg of 44.
