Four Retired Indian Cricketers Who Are Still Performing In League Cricket

Many retired cricketers have played the game at the highest level for many years, and they have developed a deep understanding of the game. They know how to read the conditions, how to build an innings, and how to take wickets. 

This experience can be a huge advantage in the shorter formats of the game, such as T20, where there is less time to think and react. When you are playing for your country, there is a lot of pressure to perform. You are representing your country and your fans, and you want to do your best. 

However, when you are playing in a league, the pressure is not as great. You can relax and enjoy the game, and this can sometimes lead to better performances. The top bookmakers in India have amazing odds with them.

The shorter formats of the game, such as T20, are more suited to batsmen who are aggressive and can hit the ball hard. They are also more suited to bowlers who can take wickets quickly. 

This means that retired  Indian cricketers who have these skills can often find success in these leagues. Here is a list of 4 cricketers who retired from international cricket but are still performing in cricket leagues.

1) Yusuf Pathan

Yusuf Pathan has been a very successful cricketer in the shorter formats of the game, and he has continued to perform well in cricket leagues after retiring from international cricket. In the Indian Premier League (IPL), Pathan has played for Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Sunrisers Hyderabad. 

He has scored over 3,000 runs in the IPL, with an average of over 25 and a strike rate of over 150. He has also taken over 100 wickets in the IPL. In 2023, Pathan is playing in the Zimbabwe T10 League for the Joburg Buffaloes. He has been in great form, and he has scored over 150 runs in the tournament at an average of over 30 and a strike rate of over 180.

2) Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar has been a consistent performer in the Road Safety World Series, a T20 tournament for retired cricketers. He has played for India Legends in the last three editions of the tournament, and he has scored 233 runs in 7 matches at an average of 33 and a strike rate of 138. He has also taken 3 wickets. 

Tendulkar is a legend of the game, and he is still a very capable batsman. He is a master of timing and placement, and he can still score runs quickly. Even after his retirement, God of Cricket stays in the news with his consistency in cricket.

3) Naman Ojha

Naman Ojha played in the inaugural season of Legends League Cricket in 2022 for the Bhilwara Royals. He played 4 matches, scoring 259 runs at an average of 64.75 and a strike rate of 176.19. He also took 1 wicket. 

Ojha's best performance came in the match against the India Maharajas, where he scored 140 runs off 72 balls, including 12 fours and 5 sixes. He was also involved in a 178-run partnership with Yusuf Pathan, which is the highest partnership in Legends League Cricket history.

4) Robin Uthappa

Robin Uthappa is a known name in the Indian Premier League but he has announced his retirement from that as well. However, Uthappa stayed in the news with his consecutive performances for Chennai Super Kings in IPL.
He was the right-hand man for MS Dhoni and did wonders with his bat in IPL. Uthappa announced his retirement from IPL as well but he still plays for Harare Hurricanes in Zimbabwe T10.
