Manoj Prabhakar
(Former India Cricketer)

A regular in the Indian side back in the 90s, Manoj Prabhakar was one of those rare breed of cricketers who opened the innings with both bat and ball. A sweing bowler, who on his day could be a force to reckon with, Prabhakar transformed himself from a handy lower-order batsman to a platform-laying opener. His career ended in ignominy though after he was booed on his home ground at Delhi after getting slaughtered by Sri Lanka during the 1996 World Cup.
