As Guru Greg and the examplary cricket captain, the Great Wall of India, Rahul Dravid are trying some young talents in the TEAM INDIA, some of young grooming talents of india got a wonderful chance to press for their place in team India by performing well in the recently concluded EUROASIA CUP at Abudhabi. Unfortunately we lost the final againgt the arch rivals Pakistan'A' by 36 runs but players of India'A' under the captaincy of Y.Venugopal Rao performed superbly throughout the series. After this series some players have already made impressions, it will be a very tough job for the five wise men of indian cricket termed selectors to choose Team India for the upcoming series. Now, as I was talking about some yong talents , let me introduce them with you.
Bowling of India'A' in Euroasia Cup was superb in presence of talented young fast bowlers as well as spinners. Suddenly India have got a very good fast bowling strength. In EUROASIA cup some yong fast bowlers made their presence felt. In this series the performance of 'Rudra Pratap Singh' was very good. This left hand fast bowler took 11 wickets in 4 matches with having the average of just 11 runs per wicket(before the finals). As he is still strugling to make permanent place in Team India, it was a golden chance for him to impress the selectors and team management. He shows good pace and swung the ball both ways and got good bounce from the pitch by virtue of his high arm action which results in hitting the deck hard. Another right hand fast bowler who shown great pace and control in his bowling was 'Vikram Rajvir Singh'. The tall man who have just played only two ODI was phenomenol in the EUROASIA CUP and took 11 wickets in just 3 matches with an average of 10.3 runs per wicket(before the finals). Once again the young talented leg spinner in 17 years old 'Piyush Chawala' was very difficult for the bastsmen to cope with. The leggie who came into limelight after the latest edition of U-19 world Cup in Sri Lanka and made his test debut against England at Mohali took 6 wickets in 4 matches having an average of 16(before the finals).
Some batsmen of indian team also performed brilliantly in EUROASIA CUP. One who immpressed most was the left handed indian opener 'Shikar Dhawan' who also performed well at the U-19 world cup at bangladesh in 2004. He played both attacking as well as responsible knock looking at the condition of the game. He made couple of big scores as well. The sincillating debutant for Team India 'Robin Utthapa' again showed his great talent and performed well as the opener of India'A'. After this series he has proved that he has a long carrier ahead of him. Middle order batsman Rohit Sharma also played superb, another membber of the U-19 World Cup, scored 118 runs with an averg of 84(before the finals).'Dinesh Karthick' also proved that he can be a good replacement for M.S.Dhoni whenever required. He impressed both behind and infront of wickets. 'R.S.Sodhi' and 'R.Jadeja' also shown good qualities of allrounders.
So at last we may hope to see some of them in our national side in the coming future.
