Former Indian speedster Zaheer Khan has opined that “there is no lack of talented players” in Indian cricket and it’s because of the good system in place.
Several cricket experts have praised The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for building an excellent domestic structure in Indian cricket. With the help of an amazing set-up by the BCCI, the pool of talented players is just getting bigger with time.
While Speaking on Cricbuzz Zaheer Khan has said that India is producing talent like a factory and India have a big advantage over other countries when it comes to the availability of talented players. He added that the shadow tours organized by India play a big part in the development of players.
“The talent India are producing at the moment, it is just like a factory. There is no lack of talented players, the system is constantly producing players.
“The pool of players waiting, that too ready to play at such a level, is the biggest advantage India have over other teams.
The next cricket generation who are playing with India A and U-19 have been given great exposure and opportunities with shadow tours. With this, you get ready-made players which is why you get results like this,” Zaheer Khan stated.
