The popular batsman hasn’t scored a single century form past three years and also disappointed everyone from his scored in Tests and T20I series against England.
In the Edgbaston Test match he only scored 11 and 20 runs whereas in the two innings of Twenty20Is he made only 12 runs. Many cricketers stated that despite all these failures, he’s still playing on the ground just because of his name, which is not fair.
