Future stars for BCCI

Postby raja » Thu Mar 15, 2018 3:15 am

I don't think I've ever seen BCCI with so much bench strength.
In batting, bowling and keeping.
Maybe that's why players are kept on their toes, they don't want to miss a single game (just in case the replacement does well!).
Also why players are trying to up their game with the bat (if you're primarily a bowler) or ball (if you're primarily a batsman).

Of course, IPL is what players desperately want - for the big bucks - but playing for your country has its own status. Keeps you in the limelight, sponsors are still interested in you. (This is one reason why Sachin, despite his tennis elbow problems, occasionally played for India during that period. Or, at the very least, was part of squads).
Additionally, in India, if you're dropped from the Indian side, it could hurt your IPL aura/purse too.
And with BCCI recently hiking up massively the annual retainer salaries for players, it must be very motivating for players to stay in the BCCI scheme of things - and do well for the country.

BCCI is already No.1 in Tests and ODIs.
Currently No.3 in T20s.

So let's see who these promising young players are (anyone under 30 qualifies, because he has at least 5-6 years in him, if not more).
Just realised Saha is already 33, so he won't be around long.

Put a yes/no against a player depending on whether you think he will have a long career for BCCI, or not.
Format is secondary.

Hardik Pandya - yes
Kuldeep Yadav - yes
Yuzvendra Chahal - yes
Washington Sundar - no
Manish Pandey - yes
Krunal Pandya - yes
Mayank Agarwal - yes
Karun Nayar - no
Rishabh Pant - yes
Shreyas Iyer - no (sorry, yes, cos Mumbaikar)
Any average Mumbaikar - yes'

Feel free to add names. :-)
There were some pretty good players from the recent u-19 squad, but I don't remember their names right now.

Not adding names but a question.

How you are judging the Yes or No?

chahal big no no.

BIG RULE : anybody who is not good for T20 is not good for team BCCI.

One has to prove in IPL to be in national team. that’s the law now.

Kuldeep Yadav and Chahal will be the lynchpin of Indian attack in WC 2019. The way they destroyed SA in SA is just a pointer. Both are wrist spinners who can turn on any surface.

I am sure there are cricketers outside the above names who are from small towns and metro cities who would represent India.

They will come out of the blue. Additionally, some under 19 cricketers may graduate to the next level.

It was heartening to see Nagarkoti and Mavi bowling 140 kmph + in the under 19 WC. Prithvi Shaw is already playing in Mumbai Ranji team at 18. Shubman Gill, we need to watch out for.

Shreyas Iyer is not so technically skilled.

Thats a problem area for India. If batting had clicked a bit, India would have defeated SA in the test series.

Kohli was the best batsman from both sides in the series but otherwise the Indian top order was a disaster and you had Bhuvaneshwar Kumar salvaging the tail.

We need to look at new options. There are some passengers in the team.
