What happened to Karun NayarKarun Nayar, A Ranji player from Karnataka, got his Test cap against England in 2016. In his thrid Test, he scored 303 not out against England. He is the second Indian batsman to score a triple century after Virender Sehwag. He is also the only Test player who converted his maiden century to triple century in Test matches.
Karun Nayar has so far played only six tests for India. Despite scoring a triple century, he doesn't get opportunity to regularly play for India. Is the excess talent in India's middle-order batting depriving many great players?
Sometime excess talent is not good! In earlier days, we have seen Padmakar Shivalkar and Rajinder Goel, two top-class left-arm spinners of the world, could not play for India due to Bishan Singh Bedi. Same was true for VV Kumar, who could not play for Chandrasekhar. Narendra Hirwani could not play because of presence of Anil Kumble. Is the same thing happening for Karun Nayar?
