Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
A cricketer remains favourite of the viewer's till he keeps the form and plays for the team but as soon as he retires, nobody cares.
Anyone who has ever been a part of an International Cricket team has been a hero to thousands. It doesn’t matter if that someone had been a legendary cricket or just a one match wonder.
It is expected that cricketers, even if dropped off the team or retired, would stick to a profession associated with the game. However, there are a few who chose to pursue a profession that has no relation to cricket once their cricketing days got over. Let’s take a look at these players ahead.
We all remember him as a part of India’s 1996 World Cup. Salil Ankola’s continuous performance for Maharashtra state team earned him a spot on the International squad for the first time in 1989.
Ankola was detected with a tumor in his shin bone and he had no choice but to say goodbye to cricket and cherish his career in Bollywood. Quite a popular face on television, Ankola can be spotted in the Arbaz khan hosted show, Power Couple.
Saddagopan Ramesh was quite a useful opening batsman in the international test cricket team of India. However, his poor form for an extend period of time cost him his spot in the international squad.
Ramesh gave up his career in cricket and like many cricketers do, decided to join the film industry. If you’re into Tamil cinema, you may have spotted Ramesh in the 2008 flick, Santosh Subramaniam and also, Potta Potti.
The magic last over specialist, Joginder Sharma was the man who brought a young Indian team their first Twenty20 world cup in 2007 with his fantastic bowling. He stood up to those breathless moments of the final over of the final match between India and Pakistan and the rest is history.
However, Sharma’s cricketing career never really worked as expected and today, he serves as a DSP in Haryana Police. Well, at least, he’s serving the nation in a noble way.
