India have always been a nation that produced a plethora of talented cricketers. With stiff competition in the Indian national cricket team, it is tough to make the cut in the playing XI, and it is not that easy. Even the talented players are forced to warm the bench, and some of them rarely get the opportunity to shine at the highest level.
Meanwhile, Australia’s’s big-hitting all-rounder Marcus Stoinis has reserved the highest respect for India for developing talented cricketers. In a recently-released web series, ‘The Test’, the all-rounder was seen disclosing some of the most hidden aspects of his personal professional life.
Marcus Stoinis amazed seeing the talent of Indian cricketers
In one of the episodes, Australian all-rounder Stoinis praised the immense cricketing talent that India possesses. The all-rounder himself confessed that the ones who are not playing for India are way more talented than him.
“India is the most talented team in the world. Hands down. The players not playing are way more talented than me,” Marcus Stoinis said in The Test.
Stoinis made these remarks in the section which showcased India’s’s memorable 2018-19 tour to Australia where they defied all odds and won the Test series and ODI series by the 2-1 margins after levelling the T20I series with 1-1.
“I love playing in India. I love the culture – its unmatched energy. It heightens all your senses. If you can harness all that excitement, that energy there is no way you can rock up there and not be motivated to play,” Stoinis added in a statement.
Marcus Stonis was one of the biggest purchases in the IPL 2020 auction. The all-rounder was roped in by Delhi Capitals (DC) for INR 4.8 crores. There was an intense bidding war between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals. However, Delhi Capitals ensured to snatch Stoinis by splashing the right amount.
