IPL T20 Cricket: Young stars for future


Indian Premier League made talented unknown young cricketers into overnight stars. They have not played either test cricket or one day cricket. Even cricket maniacs don’t know much about them. But today they are household names in India thanks to IPL T20 Cricket. These young cricketers played better than their famed counterparts and will command hefty fees in the next year auction if BCCI lifts upper circuit on them. Indian cricket future is safe in their hands.







Young successful cricketers in IPL T20 Cricket:
1. Shikhar Dhawan (Delhi IPL): Delhi Ranji player is an ideal no.3 in both T20 and one day cricket for India. He is in the top 10 batsmen list in IPL 2008.


2. Swapnil Asnodkar (Jaipur IPL): Goa opener needs to change state to get more attention from Indian selectors. He has the potential to replace even Virender Sehwag in Indian T20 team if necessary. He scored 132 in just 3 matches but Rajasthan inexplicably didn’t seelct him against Hyderabad.


3. Virat Kohli (Bangalore IPL): India under-19 world cup winning team captain is the rare batting star in poor Bangalore team.


4. Manpreet Gony (Chennai IPL): This Punjab all-rounder surpassed all expectations by taking wickets regularly. This hugely built dynamic young man is a threat to any batsman.


5. Abhishek Nayar (Mumbai IPL): Hard hitting Mumbai batsman is another T20 hopeful.


6. Ashok Dinda (Kolkata IPL): He is Glenn McGrath of Kolkata Knight Riders with his economic bowling.


7. Pradeep Sangwan (Delhi IPL): Along with Yo Mahesh, he is lucky to share dressing room with McGrath. Fast learner.


8. Yo Mahesh: Tamilnadu lad is learning tricks of fast bowling from team mates like Glenn McGrath and Mohammad Asif.


9. Vijay Kumar (Hyderabad IPL): Lorry cleaner from Kadapa (Andhra Pradesh) achieved fame and earned money through IPL. Bad luck, he is in Hyderabad team which has poor captains like Gilchrist and Laxman who doesn’t know how to groom these youngsters.


10. Ravindra Jadeja (Rajasthan IPL): He is a contender for late middle order.


11. Trivedi: He single handily disrupted strong Hyderabad batting lineup when they are marching ahead.


12. Vidyut Sivaramakrishnan (Chennai IPL): Another T20 opener who smashed McGrath and Asif at will in the recent match. Dhoni should not drop him for recommendation candidates like Anirudha.


13. Prasanta Saha: Wicket keeper of Kolkata Knight Riders has bright future if groomed well.

Known youngsters like Yusuf Pathan, Robin Uthappa, Rohit Sharma, Piyush Chawla, Ishant Sharma, Praveen Kumar, Sreesanth, Gambhir and Irfan Pathan are playing upto their potential.
As Adam Gilchrist said, Indian cricket future is in safe hands and its bench strength is comparable to Australians. They are getting life time experience by sharing same dressing room with legendary cricketers like Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist, Shaun Pollock and Glenn McGrath etc. This is the big benefit of Indian Premier League T20 Cricket tournament.


But coaches and captains should carefully guide them otherwise they may be spoilt by IPL money and fame. They should learn from Dhoni on how to manage fame and money. Mental strength is essential to play at highest level in cricket. That is the difference between Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli. Rajasthan Royals are already searching for more youngsters with the help of Greg Chappell. But we have to see the effects of Twenty20 cricket on Test cricket.
