Former India legends pick their youngsters of the future

Legends Lounge

In a new episode of ‘Legends Lounge’, available on the JioCinema app, former India cricketers picked exciting young talents from IPL 2022.

Former India and CSK batter, Suresh Raina picked Ravi Bishnoi as the most exciting talent who will be a great option for India.

If you see all the big bowlers who have earned their stripes in Test cricket, I think Bishnoi with his character and way of delivering the ball, will become someone like Rashid Khan.

On the other hand, former India left-arm spinner, Pragyan Ojha talked about at length of Mumbai Indians’ Tilak Verma.

Verma had a cracking IPL 2022 for Mumbai Indians where he scored runs consistently.

He’s from Hyderabad. I have seen his development since he was a kid. I am talking about him in U15 and U16 cricket and how hard he works. His schedule involves going to the ground at 6 am and coming home at 6 pm. He only takes a 30-45 minute lunch break. He is thoroughly dedicated.

Parthiv Patel and RP Singh also pick their gen-next players

Meanwhile, former India pacer, RP Singh talked about the likes of Yashasvi Jaiswal who plays for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL.

If you look at his batting in the domestic circuit, you can tell there is something different about him. His game-reading sense, his batting technique, or his know-how of how to end a match. The good thing about him is that even if he makes a 50, he is looking ahead at his 100.

On the other hand, former India wicketkeeper, Parthiv Patel also wanted to talk about Verma but decided against it.

Instead, he chose to talk about Delhi Capitals’ Prithvi Shaw and Gujarat Titans’ Yash Dayal.

The way (Shaw) has been batting in domestic games, we can see he plays well.

Adding further, he says,

Questions have been raised about his fitness and if he overcomes all these doubts, I think he has an incredible future ahead of him. My choice for bowler is Yash Dayal. Good bowler. If there was a standout bowler last year, I think everyone could see it was Yash Dayal.
