Want to be a professional cricketer?
KL Rahul and Ambati Rayudu deserve a place in the national team:
Of the number of fringe players that were given a chance high-up the order in the 5 games, opening batsman KL Rahul and middle-order bat Ambati Rayudu made a great impression on the selectors.
Rahul, who was superb on his debut in tests was once again at the top of his game in the ODI series where he bagged the Man of the Series award scoring 196 runs in the three games with a century. He has made a great case for his selection in the future along with Ambati Rayudu who should consider himself unlucky to not have cemented a place in the senior side already.
Rayudu is an experienced player who is in the prime of his form and can be an effective option in the middle order for India even in tougher conditions.
