There may be various T20 leagues around the world, including the IPL but domestic cricket is still rated highly. You often hear players talk about how going through the grind in domestic cricket is important and how vital it is to consistently perform at all stages before making it to the international arena.
Over the last few years, there are quite a few examples of players who have gone through the grind and have performed exceptionally well in domestic cricket and then have got an India call-up. Mayank Agarwal and Hanuma Vihari are prime examples. Similarly, with the Indian domestic season going on, here are five in-form domestic cricketers who might get an India call-up soon.
5 domestic players who might get an India call-up soon:
It is a little surprising that someone like Suryakumar Yadav has never been given an opportunity in the Indian team. The Mumbai batsman has been around for nearly a decade. However, he has really hit his straps in the last two or three years.
Yadav has been consistent over the last couple of seasons of the IPL. He was playing a finisher’s role when he was with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). But with Mumbai Indians (MI), he has been batting in the top order and has relished the opportunity. Yadav has been striking the ball beautifully and has shown that he can bat anywhere in the batting order as well.
Moreover, the 29-year-old has been in dazzling form in this season. He played four innings in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and aggregated 226 runs. He had a strike-rate of 154.79. In the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, he’s continued his red-hot form and has amassed 392 runs at an average of 56.00 and a strike-rate of 168.96. Thus, despite India’s consistent middle-order woes, Yadav wasn’t tried but he looks good and may well be on the cusp of a maiden India call-up.
