1. Shardul Thakur once wore jersey number 10

The most famous name on this list is Shardul Thakur, who received a lot of negative reactions when he wore the number 10 while playing for India in an ODI against Sri Lanka back in 2017. Due to the negative reactions, Thakur had no other option but to change his jersey number quickly.

2. Rajvardhan Hangargekar

Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Rajvardhan Hangargekar also chose number 10 in the IPL. Hangargekar impressed the fans with his performances for India U-19s, and many fans touted him as the next big thing in Indian cricket. It will be interesting to see if he keeps the same jersey number whenever he makes it to the senior Indian team.

3. Sachin Dhas

Sachin Dhas has become the talking point of the town after the U-19 star played a match-winning knock for India in the semifinal against South Africa last evening. Dhas’ jersey number has also come into the spotlight. It will be intriguing to see whether he retains that number when playing at the senior level.
