- Before IPL, playing domestic cricket used to get place in Team India
- Player’s place in Team India by performing better in IPL
- Players running out of Team India are also making claims for return
There was a time, when players had to perform well in Ranji Trophy or domestic cricket to play in Team India. Players used to score runs or take wickets by playing domestic cricket continuously, after that the player was noticed by the Indian selectors and they were included in Team India. IPL started from 2008, since then the way to get entry in Team India has become IPL. Talking about the last five to six years, if we talk about T20 and One Day team India, then only the players who perform well in the IPL get a place. In the last few years, so many good players have been prepared in India that even two teams of India can be prepared. Some BCCI officials may have been saying that IPL is not the standard for joining Team India, but the truth is quite different from it.
Performing well in IPL for a couple of years means that the place in Team India is confirmed. However, if the player plays well for India also, the place is secured, but if the player does not perform well with the ball and bat in some of the matches, then the card can also be cut. Whether you want to talk about Hardik Pandya or Krunal Pandya or Jasprit Bumrah. All of them had traveled to Team India through IPL. Whether it is about Ishaan Kishan or Rahul Chahar and Deepak Chahar. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devdutt Padikkal, who performed well in the IPL last year, have also made their debut for Team India. However, the performance of the players matters a lot. T Natarajan is also the same name, not only has he played ODIs and T20s, but has also managed to make his Test debut for Team India.
This time again the 15th season of IPL is being played. Many new players are doing well in this. If he continues to perform like this in the future, then it is sure that he will also get a place in the Indian team. In this, the name of Umran Malik is being taken the most. Everyone has become a fan of his speed. There is still one more month left in the IPL. It has to be seen which players perform well. Not only this, some players who are currently running out of the Indian team, their IPL performance is being monitored. Maybe some of those players will be able to make a place in Team India again.
