Turning the clock back to a couple of years now, the whole India was cheering for Prithvi Shaw and Shubman Gill for their performances in U19 World Cup and now, the same lads have grown from strength to strength to represent India at the senior level in both ODI and Test formats of the game. Speaking of the same, Paras Mhambrey stated that the players of the current U19 team will also represent India in the next couple of years.
Though India lost the tournament in final, they played like champions throughout the tournament. All the players showed their calibre in the middle to make things fall for the team at some point in time.
Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned in the final against Bangladesh, especially with the bat.
Every single player in the team has the potential:
Speaking of the same, Paras Mhambrey added that every player in the team has the calibre to represent the nation in the long run. He wants them to perform well in the first-class season to make it to the senior team in the near future.
“Everyone from this lot will not represent the country, but there are a couple of guys who have the potential to go to that level. I am sure you will see some of the names from this team represent the senior team in a couple of years. If you talk about potential, every single player in the team has the potential to go to the highest level,” Mhambrey told TimesofIndia.com.
Ravi Bishnoi was amazing –
Mhambrey further showered words of praise on Ravi Bishnoi, who showed exceptional ability with the ball. He believes Ravi will go a long way in the future with his incredible skills to perform under pressure.
Paras also added that Bishnoi is an asset for the captain to have in his arsenal.
”Ravi Bishnoi performed consistently for the team. He was amazing. He wasn’t just consistent, he put India back in the game on many occasions. The credit must be given to him for performing under challenging situations,” Mhambrey stated.
Ravi is an asset a captain can have in a team. He is a very handy bowler or I would say he is an all situation bowler. Bring him into the attack in any situation, he will deliver. His journey wasn’t just the World Cup, he will go a long way,” Mhambrey said.
Many cricketers from all the four World Cup-winning teams went on to represent the Indian senior team, including the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Mohammad Kaif, Virat Kohli, Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Shubman Gill and Prithvi Shaw.
