Suresh Raina | Suresh Raina says Devdutt Padikkal Ruturaj Gaikwad Axar Patel impress him most no mention of Rishabh Pant
Suresh Raina and Rishabh Pant
- Suresh Raina has been a game for India for over a decade
- He had said goodbye to international cricket last year.
- Raina is one of the star players of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
There are many young talented cricketers in Indian cricket at the moment, who are making their mark in different tournaments including IPL. Many players have managed to make a name for themselves in the Indian team from the IPL. The BCCI and the Rahul Dravid-led NCA should be given credit for grooming the youth, who have been focusing on this for a long time. There are many youngsters, who are being considered as the big players of the future. It stars Devdutt Padikkal, Rituraj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Prithvi Shaw and Chetan Sakaria.
Rishabh Pant also belongs to this batch. However, he has been playing international for many years. He made his debut in 2017. He has been a regular in the Test team since the end of 2020. At the same time, when former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina was asked the names of three young cricketers who have influenced him the most, the batsman dropped Pant from the list. However, he gave a valid reason for keeping Pant out. Raina has included Devdutt Padikkal, Rituraj Gaikwad and Axar Patel in his list.
‘Pant has entered the senior category’
Raina said in an interview to News 24 Sports that I would like to place Devdutt Padikkal of Karnataka in the list of most influential young players. He is followed by Rituraj Gaikwad of Maharashtra. He is a formidable player. Spinner Axar Patel has worked really hard. He has performed brilliantly in the absence of Ravindra Jadeja. On keeping Pant out of the list, Raina said that look, he has now entered the senior category. He has become very experienced. He is hitting not only sixes but also fours.
Rituraj-Padikkal’s bat talking a lot
It is known that Rituraj of Chennai Super Kings and Padikkal of Royal Challengers Bangalore have shown their flair with the bat in IPL 2020 and in the first phase of IPL-14. Both have become regular players of their respective franchises. Akshar, on the other hand, grabbed the headlines earlier this year by taking 27 wickets in his maiden Test series against England. He came into the team due to Jadeja’s injury. Significantly, Raina will be seen playing for MS Dhoni-led CSK in the second phase of IPL 2021.
