Being selected in the Indian cricket team is a matter of pride in itself. But maintaining oneself in the team is many times more difficult than that. Because there are many such players outside the team, who give strong competition on the basis of their best performance. One such example is when a bowler makes a tremendous performance like taking 10 wickets in a test match and after that his career is over, then you will not believe him.
Yes, this is the story of left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha. Who announced his retirement at the age of 33 and Ravindra Jadeja became the biggest reason for this. In the Mumbai Test, Pragyan then took 5 wickets for 40 runs and 5 wickets for 49 runs in both the innings, taking 10 wickets for 89 runs, which was the sixth best bowling performance in 90 Test matches played between India and West Indies. Not only this, it was India’s best bowling performance at number three in a Test match against West Indies. Pragyan Ojha played his last Test match against West Indies on 14 November 2013, which was also Sachin Tendulkar’s farewell match from international cricket.

In this Test match played in Mumbai, Pragyan took 10 wickets for 89 runs in both the innings, taking 5 wickets for 40 runs and 5 wickets for 49 runs. After this, questions were raised on Ojha’s action. For this reason he was forced to sit out of Team India. After this, he worked hard to improve the action and also got a clean chit from the ICC, but by then Ravindra Jadeja, who was included in the good book of the then captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, had confirmed his place in Team India. Due to this, Ojha could never return to the team again.
Left-arm spinner Ojha had retired from international and first-class cricket in February. The Board of Directors of ICA took this decision after its Annual General Meeting on 19th December and also issued a Press Release in this regard. “The members authorized the Board of Directors to nominate members for the IPL GC and the ICA Board, after taking into account any potential conflict of interest issues, has appointed Ojha to represent it,” the ICA said in a release. Found the right candidate.
