Twenty20 is clearly a young man’s game. India is still very new to the format unlike many other cricket playing nations. However, the lack of “legacy players” is bound to open doors for many who can eventually graduate to the the ODI team.
It was such a relief to read that Dravid, Sachin, Ganguly, VVS and Kumble are not in the Twenty20 list of probables. Hats off to Dravid, Sachin and Ganguly for opting out. This is one of those rare moments in Indian cricket. It will be interesting to see where this leaves the parallel cricket (Subash Chandra’s India Cricket League) series. Are these senior folks going to be left out of those games as well? Hopefully, yes.
