The India A and Under 19 team coach Rahul Dravid said that T20 format is a difficult format to crack. T20 format is all about quick thinking and does not allow time for any body to relax.
“Some of the conversations that happen on IPL teams … these conversations are not happening outside,” Dravid said about the strategy involved in team building. “They are not happening in television studios as I have been on television studios, I know it. The depth of conversation that’s happening about the T20 game within a team and within that environment is not happening elsewhere which makes the T20 format interesting and exciting to the viewers.
” There is a lot of research being done.There is a lot more knowledge about young Indian domestic talent than there was say three or four years ago,” Dravid said. “Suddenly, everyone has access to a lot of these young Indian domestic talents … and every team comes really well prepared to the auction. It’s very rare to find young Indian talents that are unheard of and you can pick out of nowhere for really cheap”.
The Indian Premier League 9 was an example as the likes of Hardik Pandya, Pawan Negi, and many other young Indian talent have played IPL which has been stepping stone for selection in the Indian team.
“Sometimes players also may not understand the dynamic of an auction, they don’t understand why certain players have gone for so much money and why someone else has gone for such less,” he said. “Players are getting better at it. They are also beginning to understand that sometimes the dynamics of an auction are quite unique.
Since the inception of IPL, many young Indian talents have played and made a name for themselves.
