Whoever follows cricket will definitely remember Joginder’s final over in 2007 World T20. After that he was picked by Chennai Super Kings, where he played for five seasons. His international career however fell apart at the end of last decade.

To add to that, Joginder had a horrible road accident. It nearly killed him and almost forced retirement on him. However he fought back and returned. In total the lad from Haryana played 4 ODIs and 4 T20Is for India. However in this small time, he left a mark on the fans.

For CSK, Joginder last played in 2011 and his contract expired in 2012. He played 16 IPL games and took 12 wickets. After that he got the job of Deputy Superintendent of Police, Haryana. Since 2015, Joginder is doing that job and living in Hisar with his wife and two kids.

Once upon a time, Paul Valthaty was one of the highly-rated cricketers in IPL. He came to the forefront in 2011 when he played for Kings XI Punjab. He smashed a century against CSK and followed it with a good knock against Deccan Chargers.

But after that, Valthaty never managed to find his feet and lived up to the expectations. He played for KXIP until 2013, but after that was never picked in the auction. Later he got a job from airlines company Air India.

Since then Valthaty has been representing Air India in the field of cricket. In 2018, he played on the Developmental Players quota in the T20 Mumbai League. However he didn’t appear in the same tournament in the 2019 edition.
