These India U-19 cricketers can play for the senior team
The ICC U-19 World Cup 2020 has reached its grand finale as India and Bangladesh square up. While we have seen a number of record-breaking performances from some players in the tournament, a few of them look promising. On the same note, we take a look at some players who can play for the senior team of India in the future.
Yashasvi Jaiswal: A reliable Indian opener in the making
Indian opener Yashasvi Jaiswal has been on a roll, as he is currently the top run-scorer of the tournament. It was his unbeaten century that allowed India to trounce Pakistan in the semis. Also, he has an astounding average of 160.50. However, he is known for his ability to play a composed knock, regardless of the situation. This makes him a future India prospect.
Divyansh Saxena: Another reliable opening option for India
India can have ample options when it comes to openers, as Divyansh Saxena is another good prospect for the role. While he is their second-highest run-scorer of the tournament so far, he has the fine ability to play according to the situation. Meanwhile he can also get crucial big scores. Thus, a technically sound opener is in the making for Team India.
Priyam Garg: A smart guy who can fill Kohli's shoes
The Indian skipper cannot be left out. While Priyam Garg has not had the best outing with the bat, it's his captaincy that has been impressive. He has handled the bowlers well and rotated them wisely. Also, his tendency to rely on bowlers based on situations, rather than their performance in the match, is also a reflection of Kohli's ingredients, making him a prospect.
Kartik Tyagi: A reliable death bowler in the making
Among the pacers, Kartik Tyagi has made a name for himself in the tournament, having claimed the second-most wickets for the side so far. However, what has been more conspicuous is his economy. As of now, he has an economy of 3.49, which is the best among Indians. Furthermore, his ability to bowl well in death overs makes him a great Indian prospect.
Ravi Bishnoi: A deadly spin weapon on turning Indian pitches
Leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi is India's highest wicket-taker so far in this tournament. He has claimed 13 wickets in five innings at a fine average of 11.61 and has a decent economy of 3.59, including a couple of four-wicket hauls. While he has made an impact in South Africa, where pacers generally find success, imagine the amount of impact he can make in India.
