5. Maninder Singh

Maninder Singh was a slow left arm orthodox bowler. He made his test debut for India at Karachi in 1982/83 at the age of 17 years and 193 days. However, Singh’s International career began with a rocky start as he failed to score a single run or scalp a wicket on debut. One of those cricketers who flattered to deceive after showing early promise, Maninder Singh is 5th among youngest Indians to make their debut in test matches.

4. Parthiv Patel

Parthiv Patel was a selectorial gamble like no other. He was thrown into the flight for the England tour when he should have been in school. Patel became the youngest ever keeper to play in a test match and the fourth youngest Indian to make his debut in tests when he earned his first cap at Nottingham in 2002. As his competency in his primary role of wicket keeping began to fade, Parthiv’s honeymoon period ended when he was dropped couple of years later.

3. L. Sivaramakrishnan

Probably more famous for his exploits behind the mike than with the ball, Siva was one of the most promising young talents when he made his debut at the age of 17 years and 118 days. Siva had made his debut at Antigua in 82/83 in a rather forgettable test match as his leg breaks did little to stop a West Indian run feast, and it would take until December of ’85 for Siva to get his due at the international stage when he sank England with a match haul of 12 for 181.

2. Piyush Chawla

Another one of those bowlers who disappeared as soon as they arrived. Piyush Chawla failed to live up to the early billing as he lost his form and his way after a bright start to his international career. Having made his debut at 17 years and 75 days, Chawla has disappeared into the wilderness, much like many his age who were thrown into the limelight at an inopportune time.

1. Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar is the youngest Indian and the third youngest cricketer to earn a test cap. Sachin made his debut against Pakistan in Karachi, and the rest as they say is history. The Master Blaster has gone on to become the most decorated cricketer of his generation, retiring with nearly every record and every piece of silverware to his name.
