Ojha played the last international match 7 years ago.
When Ravindra Jadeja joined the team in 2013, Pragyan did not get a chance again.

Harbhajan's shortcoming was made a part of Team India in 2009 when Harbhajan Singh was losing his edge. Ojha along with Ravichandran Ashwin gave a new direction to Team India's spin attack. In 2012, India lost the series 2–1 against England. Ojha took 20 wickets in that series too. However, the following year, in 2013, Ravindra Jadeja came into Team India as an all-rounder and Ojha was out. He never became a part of the Test team after this.
Career Recordoza took 113 wickets in 24 Tests, 21 wickets in 18 ODIs and 10 wickets in 6 T20s. He has a total of 424 wickets in first-class cricket. For this, he played 108 matches. In 2018, he played his last first class match against Uttarakhand for Bihar. In the IPL, he played for Deccan Chargers and Mumbai Indians. However, he is not part of any IPL team since 2015. He played a total of 92 matches in the IPL and took 89 wickets.
It is a coincidence that Sachin and Sachin Tendulkar played the final test together. Sachin had already announced his retirement. However, Ojha never played a Test for Team India after this. Pragyan was the 'man of the match' against the West Indies in 2013 at the Wankhede Stadium. He took 5-5 wickets in both innings.
