Stats Crunch – Abishek Nayar

The ‘Stats Crunch’ is a new series of posts looking at some statistical quirks or some out-of-the-world stats, so hope you enjoy it!

The first is Abishek Nayar, who made his name as a hard – hitting all-rounder with the IPL team, the Mumbai Indians.

He got a maiden-call up for the team that toured West Indies immediately after the T20WC and played in 2 matches.

However, have a look at Nayar’s profile. He has dashes under all the columns (except, of course, the no. of matches), which effectively means that he didn’t bowl a ball, take a catch or bat!

Now, imagine this scenario. For some reason or the other, Nayar goes out of favour with the selectors.

Now that would result in him retiring from cricket with one of the most strange stats that you might ever see. Marvellous isn’t it?

Hope you enjoyed it!
