The India cap is the dream of everyone who picks up a ball or bat in the country. There are countless Indians who would give an arm and a leg for a place in the Indian team.
Yet only a privileged few get to realise their dream and there are some who get close to selection but fall just short. We list 3 Indian players who haven’t played for India in the recent past but are knocking the door;
1) Devdutt Padikal – The Karnataka youngster has taken the domestic season by storm. The best thing has been his performance in every format, be it T20s, One-dayers or Ranji Trophy. A great IPL might be enough to get him into the squad.
2) Jaydev Unadkat – India’s quest for a left-arm seamer can be answered by Jaydev Unadkat. He captained Saurashtara to a Ranji title last year and happened to take the highest wickets for a pacer in Ranji history.
3) Suryakumar Yadav – Many believe Yadav has been unlucky to not be selected for India already. He has had a great IPL 2018 and a terrific couple of years in domestic cricket for Mumbai. Out of the three, the Mumbaikar has the best chance of getting picked for India.
