This Game A Chance For Youngster To Come In National Frame: Hemang Badani
Hemang Badani, the former Indian player and the coach of BCCI President’s XI squad for the practice game against Australia, has said that the match is a good chance for the youngsters to perform and come in the national frame.
The squad includes likes of players who did well in IPL and in limited over format in previous domestic season. Gurkeerat Singh Mann and Sandeep Sharma are the only two players who have played for India, but they also could not find a place in any of the Duleep Trophy squads.

“All the guys are raring to go. It’s good chance to get some runs on board and get wickets on board too and get back to the national side. Younger guys too will look have a good hit. Yes, it is a good side they are going to play but they are tough enough and have seen enough about playing at the highest level. So they are up and ready,” Badani said on the eve of the practice game.

“I would go back to personal experience. I was out of the side for a couple of years (in 2003) and got a 100 in a side game against New Zealand and that kind of paved my way back into the ODI side. They do realize come to these matches one good knock or a five-wicket haul gets them back into the reckoning. They have been working hard all through the year to be where they are now. Having said that it’s now on the individuals to take up the opportunity and grab it and take it forward,” he added.

Under Badani’s tutelage, Chepauk Super Gillies recently won the second edition of Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL), and the former Indian player was rewarded for his efforts and was given the job to coach the BCCI XI squad. This is not just an opportunity for the players but also Badani, as a favorable result against a strong team like Australia can also lead Badani establishing himself into one of the best coaches.
