Most Underrated Cricketers

The world of cricket is full of talented players, but not all are recognized for their skills. There are many great cricketers who have put in a lot of hard work and dedication to make the game what it is today - but some have forgotten them. Each of them has made an impact on the game and should be appreciated by a wider audience.

Ross Taylor

Ross Taylor has been a very good New Zealand batsman. Even though he has the records to back up his claim, Taylor has never been regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world after playing for over a decade. Ross Taylor has made life difficult for bowlers in the T20 format, ODIs and Tests. He is one of those batsmen who can strike from ball one and defend for 50 balls. His slog sweep over mid-wicket is one for the ages.

Hashim Amla

Hashim Amla is a great Test batsman. He is considered by many to be one of the greatest batsmen on the cricket pitch. His records in Tests were not good. However when you look at his T20I record, that notion goes out of the window. 1277 runs in 44 matches at an average of 33.60 and a strike rate of 132.05 made him a very good T20I batsman and one of the most underrated T20I cricketers of all time.

Michael Hussey

Michael Hussey

The Australian southpaw was still fighting for a place in the national Test team. Despite this, he has been successful since his first game, when he was 30. Mike Hussey, often referred to as Mr. Cricket, was known for his fair play and cricketing skills. He understood how to establish himself and leave his mark on all versions of the game. One of those athletes who can adjust to any scenario for the betterment of his team rather than focusing on individual honours. He had impeccable timing and it didn't take long for him to settle down.

Ashish Nehra

Many consider Ashish Nehra to be the best ODI bowler who could take wickets after tempting the batsmen to hit. Fans expect him to be a bit expensive in T20Is. However, a look at his record throws this notion out the window.

Nehra played 27 matches and took 34 wickets which in itself is a good start. However what is exceptional is the economy of 5.60, something that even the best can't achieve.

Ajit Agarkar

Ajit Agarkar

The Indian fast bowler holds the record for the fastest fifty for an Indian in One Day Internationals. He was a brilliant player for India whose achievements are as outstanding as the famous Zaheer Khan. Agarkar has also scored a century at Lord's. He did not get the status he deserved in his career. He took 288 wickets in just 191 ODIs.

Jacques Kallis

Jacques Kallis

The greatest all-rounder the cricket world has ever seen. Despite being the third highest scorer in Tests with 45 centuries to his name, he is still not counted when legends of the game are brought up for discussion. He was a brilliant player who shone in all aspects of the game. His Test bowling average is almost the same as that of Indian fast bowler Zaheer Khan. Kallis' statistics are staggering, and yet, we are slowly forgetting this legend.
