Currently, Indian cricket is considered to be the most prosperous cricket in the world. Because, India is bringing forward the most young and talented cricketers every time. Many such young players are showing their skills through IPL. Ravi Shastri, the former captain and former head coach of the Indian cricket team, has made a big statement on this thread.
Shastri is known for expressing his strong opinions. Speaking in an interview recently, he said that Indian cricket has benefited a lot because of IPL. He said,
“Indian cricket is where it is today thanks to the IPL. We have IPL to thank for that. Today there are also players who have done well in the IPL and made regular places in the Indian Test team. It is the hen that lays the golden egg. So it is not right to raise doubts about it.”
The Indian squad for the upcoming tour of West Indies has many players who have excelled in the IPL. At the same time, the selection committee is heavily criticized for fielding players who have performed well in domestic cricket. Shastri made this statement for this reason.
Shastri’s statement is often correct. Yusuf Pathan and Ravindra Jadeja, who came to prominence in the first IPL, became a major part of the Indian team over time. After that, Jasprit Bumrah and Hardik Pandya, who are now the captain of the Indian team, were first introduced from the IPL. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Rituraj Gaikwad have been selected for the West Indies tour as well.
