Indian cricket team have seen a lot of young talents who have left an early mark on cricket. Some of these cricketers went all the way to endure a long career against all the odds while others faded away with time. This is a testament of early success does not always means a fruitful or glorious end.
Let us have a look at top five Indian cricketers who were among the youngest to hit ODI century.
5. Suresh Raina
Suresh Raina scored his first ODI century at the age of 21 years and 211 days. Over the years, Suresh Raina has been an integral part of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) franchise in the IPL. But he has been far from contention to play for the Indian cricket team. Suresh Raina made his last international appearance in 2018 during India’s tour of England and since then has been out-of-favour of the side.
Raina batted at No.3 Or the fourth spot in his career which now belongs to Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer in the recent scheme of things as far as the limited-overs is concerned. In fact, in the last IPL season Raina did not look up to the mark though he makes it to the core group of CSK players.
Raina has begun his training for IPL 2020 as CSK will reportedly be one the first team to depart for the lucrative tournament.
Raina averages 25 in Tests, 35 in ODIs and nearly 30 in the shortest format of the game.
