Rahul Dravid has begun his journey as the Indian Cricket Team’s head coach. The conclusion of the first T20 international between India and New Zealand on Wednesday marked the beginning of the Rahul Dravid era in Indian cricket. Indian Cricket will enter a rebuilding phase under the direction of a new Indian head coach.
Rohit Sharma has been named the new captain of the Indian T20 cricket team. In the other two formats, Virat Kohli will continue to head the squad. Indian cricket opened the Rahul Dravid era with a 5-wicket victory against New Zealand in the first of a three-match T20 series.
1. Ruturaj Gaikwad
Several experts and fans lauded Ruturaj Gaikwad’s remarkable performance in the IPL 2021. The CSK opener appeared in all of the tournament’s matches and finished as the tournament’s leading run-scorer. He scored 635 runs in 16 matches, with an average of 45.36 and a strike rate of 136.27. Seeing him bat during the tournament was a delight. Gaikwad is expected to be named to India’s senior team based on his attitude. Many previous Indian players have stated that he is capable of playing all three formats and serving Indian cricket for many years.
2. Avesh Khan
Avesh Khan is one of the U19 players coached by Rahul Dravid who might be called up to the senior team shortly. Avesh, along with Pant and Ishan Kishan, was a member of the 2016 U19 squad. At IPL 2021, the Madhya Pradesh speedster was the second-highest wicket-taker. Many people anticipated him to make his debut against New Zealand, but he didn’t. Avesh, on the other hand, will almost certainly play for India next year.
3. Arshdeep Singh
There is no doubting that left-arm seamers are in short supply in Indian cricket. They’ve tried players like Khaleel Ahmed, Jaydev Unadkat, and Barinder Sran over the years, to mention a few. None of them, however, lived up to the hype. Arshdeep Singh is about to make his international debut for Team India. He took 18 wickets in the IPL 2021 and shined brilliantly both in the powerplay and at the death. India is in desperate need of left-arm seamers across all formats, and Arshdeep might be one of the first to receive a shot in this area. As a result, he might make his debut in the near future.
4. Riyan Parag
Riyan Parag was a member of the 2018 U19 World Cup winning side. Parag’s performance in the IPL has been disappointing, but he has performed admirably at home. He is a middle-order batsman who can also bowl a few overs. India is in desperate need of cricketers with such a profile. Parag must perform well in the IPL in order to receive a call from the Indian team.
5. Ravi Bishnoi
Ravi Bishnoi, the leg-spinner for Rajasthan, is one of Indian cricket’s rising talents. He rose to attention after taking the most wickets in the Under-19 World Cup in 2020. In just six matches, he took 17 wickets for India at an average of 10.65. Ravi Bishnoi is rapidly rising through the ranks, and it won’t be surprising if he makes his debut for the Indian Cricket Team in the coming years.
