Many people were surprised when the young Mumbaikar was not taken on a tour of the Caribbean, despite the fact that he was in fine form in home cricket. However, Sarfaraz, who will represent the West Zone in the Dulip Trophy, will have another opportunity to put pressure on the selectors.
He knows how to score, and he can score fast, and he can play productive innings that can take a game away from his opponent in one or two sessions. He’s already shown that he can throw marathon strikes or go at a fast pace when he needs to.
Sai Sudharsan’s career first class: 7 matches| 572 runs| average 47.66
Ever since Gautam Gambhir, the Indian top order has lacked a reliable left-handed player. Sudharsan from Tamil Nadu might be the perfect candidate for that role. The left-handed player has excellent defensive technique and solid character, which gives him the ability to play the bat for a long period of time. He can also score quickly when needed.
Unlike Sarfaraz, Sudharsan has little experience, as he only played seven games in his freshman year. However, his involvement with Gujarat Titans showed that he is ready to handle pressure at the highest level when he scored 96 goals in the IPL 2023 final. This is his chance to show that he can bring value in the longest format.
Shahbaz Ahmed Career First Class: Matches: 27: Bowling: Wickets 82| Average 21.79|| Batting: Runs 1538| Average 43.94
After becoming vice-captain of the Eastern Zone, Shahbaz Ahmed has grown in size in the last few years. He also got a taste of international cricket in 2022 when he performed well in his ODI debut match against South Africa.
The 28-year-old has been a key all-rounder for Bengal in both aspects of the game. He was able to make valuable contributions to the run at the end of the middle order when his team needed him to. In the ball game, he has shown himself to be outstanding, not only adept at picking up wickets, but he can also play tight long series and hold his strike when wickets don’t fall.
Prabhsimran Singh Career First Class: 11 matches| 689 points| average 49.21
The opener from Punjab played a crucial role in his state team’s rapid start to the 2022/23 Ranji season. He has been fearless, and his attacking approach can get opponents on their feet from the very first minutes. In addition to his batting ability, Prabhsimran is also adept at dHe was selected as the lone keeper in Ranji’s team.North Zone squad.
With KC Bharat having a tough time at the top level in the Indian team, the backup spot may be in question. However, like Ishaan Kishan, who is in the Test squad as a reserve keeper, Prabhsimran does not regularly play for his state team in red-ball cricket. The Dulip Trophy could provide the 22-year-old with an opportunity to showcase his skills in both batting and gloves.
Rinku Singh Career First Class: 40 matches| 2875 runs| Average 59.89
Pocket dynamite has been a machine for runs at first-class level for a long period. His calmness in scoring under pressure sets him apart from his peers. The left-handed player is comfortable in both back and pace. At the IPL level, he also felt comfortable when faced with extreme pace.
Like Sudharsan, Rinku is left-handed. Suresh Raina and Yuvraj Singh have been thrown into the middle of the Test lineup in the past to provide a counter-punch when needed, but they have been inconsistent in their actions. The 25-year-old could be a candidate for that role. Not only does he have a terrific average, but he’s hitting 70.88. After breaking through in IPL 2023, a successful performance at the Duleep Trophy might be all Rink Singh needs to be drafted into the Indian national team.
