Ipl has always been a game-changer for many cricketers from its first season.
The performance of players in this tournament helps them with a chance to enter the national team.
Not only Indian cricketers but also the overseas cricketers use this opportunity to make their game visible to the national selectors.
This tournament has been a growth hack for all the cricketers who are part of it.
There are many names who made it big to the national team by their splendid knocks or spells for their franchises.
Similarly, IPL 2020 will also be a game-changing moment for many new lads who have come up with a hope to make something big.
Along with the new lads, there are even a few more Indian cricketers who have already been a part of the Indian team as well IPL, but still are struggling to cement their position in the current scenario of Indian cricket.
And IPL 2020 will surely help them to get out of this instability and set their position permanently in the Indian Team.
Here are the 5 Indian cricketers for whom IPL 2020 will be important:
Sanju Samson is a good talent for Indian Cricket but his clash with Rishabh Pant at the international level has made him wait quite long to be a consistent performer for the Indian team.
Samson was frequently called to the Indian team but was never considered in the Playing XI due to a packed lineup.
But Dhoni’s retirement has showered ray of hope on Sanju.
Better performance in IPL 2020 would make Sanju an assured candidate as a wicket-keeper in the national team.
Due to his amazing performances in Domestic cricket and the previous seasons of IPL, selectors have an eye on him and at some point, are considering him as he can be a great choice for the team.
Shikhar Dhawan is a senior cricketer, as well as the opener of the Indian team, has a great responsibility on his shoulder.
No doubt he has always been one of the best performers for the team from the past few years but his performances as seen in some of the previous games were not up to mark.
Being an opener, it’s his responsibility to give a good start and build a pleasing partnership for the team but unfortunately, his performance from the previous games is quite disappointing.
But IPL 2020 is an opportunity for him to come up with some amazing knocks and give trust to the selectors on his selection for future games.
This young lad has a lot of skills with him but doesn’t know the proper way to utilize it and get something productive of it.
In spite of being considered as the future wicketkeeper of the Indian Team after Dhoni, his approach to fill the shoes of Dhoni and to maintain that standard is not at all positive.
No doubt he has the ability to hit it big out of the park, but no such big knock has been seen yet from his last international games.
So IPL 2020 being such a huge platform can help him get a permanent seat in the Indian team if he strikes with some amazing knocks in the tournament.
Indian Cricket is currently known for its unbeatable bowling attack and Saini even has a small contribution in this achievement of Indian bowling.
Navdeep Saini came into limelight for his fiery pace and wicket-taking ability.
Though he hadn’t got many chances in the team but still he has always come up with his best whenever he had been given the opportunity.
Due to packed experience in the Indian bowling, this young lad has not been able to play much for the country.
But being a newcomer he has much time to prove himself and be a consistent contributor for the team.
Navdeep has been owned by Royal Challengers Bangalore as their strike bowler for the tournament.
Some good spells and a couple of wickets in the tournament would help him make an entry to the Indian team.
This seamer is the most trusted one for MS DHONI in Chennai Super Kings because of his ability to swing the ball both sides.
Deepak Chahar has been the strike bowler for CSK since 2018 and has always delivered his best for the team.
Chahar even after being a good performer for the Indian team in T20s didn’t get many chances because of the consistent bowling performances of the current Indian pace bowling attack.
His better performances in IPL 2020 will surely help him with a call from the selectors for the national team
Bonus for our Readers
Hardik Pandya is the man with golden hands, who has the ability to finish matches after Dhoni by playing aggressive cricket.
Pandya plays an important role in the lower middle order of the Indian team and owns the responsibility to take the match to an end and finish it off.
Though he hasn’t been seen in action from the last few months due to his injury and hence his comeback in IPL 2020 will decide his presence in the further tours of India.
Every Indian fan out there is expecting the comeback of Hardik with some amazing big hits in the IPL 2020.
As we all know encouragement is something which boosts up a player to give his best in the ground and thus the crowd plays an important role in making a game more entertaining.
But due to this pandemic, it’s heartbreaking that the fans won’t be able to cheer their teams in the ground.
Though it’s a tough time, being a fan of the game it’s our duty to encourage the players with the same enthusiasm from our place and wish them luck for their games and future endeavors.
