2 Ishant Sharma

He has got more chances than any other more deserving bowler. Doesn't have the spark. Has to be dropped permanently

One of the greatest bowlers to ever bowl, I personally think that he is a legend, good job ishant

He's not overrated... People do think him as a bad cricketer... But they should give him a chance to prove his abilities like faulkner had said/////...

Underrated, really good bowler

3 Virat Kohli

He is an excellent cricketer. He should be first on the list. He is very talented. He is the future of Indian cricket. He is gonna be the future captain. Future master blaster

He doesn't belong to the international league. He doesn't possess the technique or the skills/temperament to survive in the top level.

Virat is all passion, enthusiastic and diligence but none of maturity, class and temperament. Well if he doesn't possess the latter then at best he a good cricketer if not a great one. So yes he is overrated.

Poster boy but technically not very strong

4 Irfan Pathan

The most promising bowler of India

5 S. Sreesanth

Another arrogant player, fortunately became the scapegoat to save all the big players in the match-fixing scandal.

6 Ajit Agarkar

virat kohli should not be in th list... agarkar deserve the first place...

Medium pace at best. Would contribute 25 with the bat at max. Felt like he was only their as Indias talent pool was lacking back then!

7 Yusuf Pathan

The worst cricketer in this list. Look at the amount he gets paid by kkr and then look at his contributions. It tells everything

He is the definition of cricket pervert if he plays for nationals side. He is a player of IPL for which he had said "critics don't know how hard I work" it is his moral duty not to dream of spoiling Indian side again.

Blinded by the money in IPL and thinks he is indispensable. Made millions already, so no more motivation to play for his country or franchise.

8 Ravindra Jadeja

This guy is good for nothing cricketer in India. He is neither good in bowling nor batting. Just an average cricket.

Indian selectors should have given chance to all-rounders which have proven them in domestic cricket much better than jadeja but dhoni showing confidence in him +few match-winning knocks is too much for selectors. at least in t-20 Indian national team, he should not be allowed at all; there prevails good bench strength besides him to be tested.

Jadeja absolutely useless and hopeless player.. Do you guys even know the meaning of overrated?

Absolutely useless.

9 Ramesh Powar

One of the finest gems ever laid a step on the cricket field.

10 Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Tendulkar Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar is a former Indian cricketer and captain, widely regarded as one of the greatest batsmen of all time.

Tendulkar is not over rated. It is just people not agreeing to it are jealous of his success. He has been the sole reason for people watching cricket in India for nearly two decades. His performance and records speaks for itself and is the best way to keep anyone shut. People tend to get jealous seeing other's success.

In India people are so driven by passion. I mean seriously "GOD OF CRICKET"? He would have been a normal, respected legend had he been born in another country, but here media & folks not only overrated him in his prime, they are still getting ecstatic beholding him now. He alone didn't win the matches & has a worst win record as captain. Let it go guys, another sachin may not be born again, but certainly a better someone is on the cards.

24 years and say he has all records. Funny people, I am too Indian, but don't agree with Tendulkar as greatest. He was Longest cricket for India would be right term. But Sachin does not fit in Top 10 overrated at least. There are many others.

Played more for records and personal glory over team interests. Was never match winner or good captain. A shrewd business man, who wanted to earn crores of money, and not have the dignity of clearing his gifted Ferrari's customs. Was at his worst from 2011-13, but still dragged around his career for the greed of 100 international tons and 200 tests, at the cost fielding a virtually 10 man a side for those two and a half years. Overrated, selfish and overentitled. Only IAF had the balls to kick him out from honorary squadron leader rank. The Bharat Ratna was sham to seduce the gullible, naïve and jingoistic sycophants, and so was the Rajya Sabha MP nomination, by the UPA, to save it's ass.

The Contenders

11 Yuvraj Singh

You are right. But sachin also should be here. Yuvral plays a nice innings once in every 2 years. I am an Indian. But I think he's just hype created by media. He's got no class. Just an angry young man who thinks he is the best. Steven Smith is a lot better than him.

100% True...
But, Young 'Virat Kohli' Should Not Be on The List. Who Avgs Over 50 Runs in ODI Matches. He Have Lot To Prove.

Why the hell virat? He is great in every aspect of the game. he is the future and by the way yuvraj has no consistency.

Had his good times

13 Sourav Ganguly Sourav Ganguly Sourav Chandidas Ganguly, affectionately known as Dada, is a former Indian cricketer and captain of the Indian national team.

Undoubtedly he is the most over rated batsman and captain who played only for personal glory and has proved it time and again

He should be number one. Why is he at number 11. There is no more overrated batsman or captain than this guy. How many lines have I got to write before I can post this?

Scored most match winning hundreds in odis against poor sides. Zimbabwes Bangladesh Kenya west indies etc. Was always done by pace bowling at top of innings. However he was very determined and a fighter. As talent and fulfilling a talent or being a dominant batsmen as he is so often made out to be is conpletley false

14 Mahendra Singh Dhoni

We have better wicket-keepers in India and cannot consider him a proper batsman, he needs dead pitches to blast that too once in a while. In 73 test n 219 odis he has made just 5 test hundreds n 8 odi 100s and has never succeeded to score a 100 outside the indian subcontinent

He is overrated captain. India would have won 2011 world cup even without him

The most worthless player ever.

Failed as a player and is even worse as incharge of the current Indian cricket team. There is nothing that he brings to the table. All he is interested in is making money by hook or by crook.
