    5. Ajay Jadeja



    The wonderful and talented allrounder, Ajay Jadeja was one of the main stays of the Indian Team in the 1990s and even captained India in One day matches. His career was cut short by the match fixing saga and the subsequent ban put on him by BCCI.

    He appeared in the movie Khel (2003) opposite Celina Jaitley along with Sunil Shetty and Sunny Deol. He played one the leading characters in the movie and did quite a decent job, but the emotional scenes and the song and dance sequences exposed his inexperience. Since then, he has stayed away from the big screen.
