Cricketers work hard all their lives to live their dream of playing at the international level.

However, despite their tremendous ability, players lose their form and go through gloomy phases in their careers. It’s in these moments that a true character of a sportsperson is tested.

On that note, let’s take a look at some players who had it in them to come out of the dark alleys of their careers and make a roaring comeback to international cricket:

After India’s first stage exit from the 2007 ODI world cup, Sachin Tendulkar was contemplating retirement. Tendulkar had been going through the worst phase of his career, marred by injuries, poor form and a horrific dressing room environment. It needed a herculean effort from the ‘Master Blaster’ to come out of this misery.

And what followed after was another golden period of Tendulkar’s career. The phase from 2008-2011 saw Tendulkar become an absolute beast as he plundered runs all around the world irrespective of the format. He surpassed Brian Lara to become the leading run-scorer in the history of Test Cricket.

He also etched his name forever in the history books as he became the first male cricketer to score a double hundred in ODI cricket. Tendulkar’s good form continued in the Indian T20 League as well as he became the first Indian to win the Orange Cap for being the highest run scorer in the 2010 edition.

Tendulkar took full advantage of being at the peak of his powers and finished as the second highest run-getter in the 2011 ODI World Cup and helped his team to clinch the title after 28 years. Tendulkar’s comeback is a testament to the phrase “form is temporary, class is permanent.”
