Manoj Prabhakar is a veteran, retired cricketer who has represented India on the International stage. Prabhakar was one of the fixtures in the Indian team in the late 80s and early 90s. An all-rounder by trade, Prabhakar’s strongest suit, definitely, was his bowling. Although he was not the quickest out there, neither did he have insane movements in his deliveries, Prabhakar was trusted with the new ball quite often due to his calm and calculated line and length. His accuracy and perseverance would often frustrate batsmen into playing rash shots and subsequently losing their wickets.
On the flip side, Manoj Prabhakar was a lower order batsman. His batting style was defensive, but he proved on more than one occasions that if the situation demanded, he could hit the ball all the way with regular consistency and nonchalance. However, it was his retirement from the national team that has left a bad taste amongst his supporters. He was booed by his home crowd, Delhi, in the 1996 world cup for a dismal performance against Sri Lanka, and thus wasn’t picked up for the next match. He chose to retire shortly afterwards.
