5. Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi

Former Indian Captain Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi lost his right eye in a car crash at the age of 20. He played with vision in just one eye but it never affected his game. Under his leadership, India registered its first-ever Test series win overseas in New Zealand in 1968.

4. Tony Greig

Greig was a formidable all-rounder for England and even captained the English side. Greig also suffered from epilepsy and developed the disease as a result of an accident at the age of 12. Despite his illness, Greig went on to play over 50 Tests each.

3. Martin Guptill

Martin Guptill would’ve never imagined achieving such feats after playing the game with just two toes on his left foot. Guptill met a tragic forklift accident and lost three of his toes at the age of 13. Despite his disability, the batter has made a name for himself scoring a plethora of runs in both ODI and T20I formats.

2. Shoaib Akhtar 

Shoaib Akhtar was one of the most fearsome bowlers in international cricket of his era. Akhtar was flat-footed, which made running difficult. He further had hyperextension in his joints causing the filling of fluids in his knees, which further led to swelling and excruciating pain.

1. Jonty Rhodes

Jonty Rhodes is hailed as the best fielder of all time in international cricket. Rhodes’ famous run-out of Inzamam-ul-Haq is counted among the greatest moments of the Cricket World Cup. He was diagnosed with ‘mild’ epilepsy as a kid and doctors advised him to stay away from any physical activity that could give him a head injury.
