    Baba aprajit and sanju Samson are ready for international debut.In test one more talented player rahane should got a chance.Take out vijay put of test sguad and gave rahane,Samson and aprajit a chance to prove at higher level.selectors should have to encourage more youngsters like aprajit and Samson so that Indian team have safe future after sachin for than a decade .selecters have to find a replacement for dhoni in test and Samson would be a good choice as he had more temperament and talent.

    Aparajit should be allowed to play for at least one year (preferably two years) at the Ranji level so that he can fine-tune his batting and improve on his bowling. Same goes for Sanju Samson who should seek to improve his batting and wicket-keeping. As a batsman, it is the right time to give some India A opportunities to some equally talented batsmen- who have already put in a couple of years in Ranji- like Manprit Juneja, Mandeep Singh etc. I believe, with his experience in Ranjis, Rishi Dhawan is good enough to play at the highest level, and along with Ravindra Jadeja, Ashwin, Irfan Pathan and Abhishek Nayar- he is an allrounder who can be good for India for the next 5 to 10 years.

    baba didnt make double this time, but great going for the youngster, i think first time in history 3 under 19 players (zol,sanju, aparajith are competing between themselves with big score

    Please someone arrange for Sanju, Zol & Aparajit to play for some English county team for a season as soon as possible.

    Baba Aparjith a heavy scoring alrounder with great reflexes on slip catching should be drafted to national duty since the last of the great batsmen of yesteryears Sachin is retiring.

    Aparajith looks like a future Dravid; great batting, eagerness to stay at the wicket building big scores and great slip fielding/catching; also a handy bowler. He should be given the break at the right time and nurtured. If we properly keep the new / emerging talents like him in the main-line vision and nurture them properly, there is no question that India will keep up the supremacy in world cricket!

    Rishi Dhawan is continuing his good form with the ball

  • Rajeev on November 7, 2013, 14:54 GMT

    Aprajith should called up for Sachin replacement, we already tested Yuvi, Raina etc. Fresh talent required to fill the gap. Samson is another candidate.

    All the people rightly talking about young Sanju,Aparajith and Vijay Zol to get the national cap right away, I would like to share a thought on few poor cricketers who waited for so long and lost their ages waiting. 1. Badrnath,32, averages around 61 in first class with 29 centuries to his name, I rate his technique is higher than Pujara's. Out of 82 first class match Pujara played for Saurashtra, more than 40 odd tests he played in Rajkot, people know how flat that track is, and even Sir Ji scored 2 triple hundreds. 2.Rahane,25:age,averages around 60 and Feel sorry for this guy, Got a very good technique than Suresh Raina, but havent got his chances in test level, I highly rate him as a good test player. 3.Manoj Tiwari,27, averages around 60 and played a lot in Eden Gardens tricky pitches,.Very strong technique, but havent got chances in test level. All these Guys waited because of Fab four(Sachin,Dravid,VVS, Sourav) who ruled India almost more than a decade.
