Former Pakistan captain and famous commentator Rameez Raja has been all praise for the young generation Indian cricketers and said The new Indian players are not afraid to take risks that after they turn up with stellar performances in the ODI series vs England which India won 2-1
Rameez was regularly giving his views on the happenings of Indian cricket during 2020-21 season and was all praise with the aggressive approach of the new generation Indian players .
At one point, India’s innings was stuck at 157/4, then came India’s young brigade. Their mentality is different, their skills are different and their instincts are different. They carry out their rebuilding phase through aggression. They make their presence felt through charge. They are so confident about themselves and their skills that they never give up,” Raja said.
“When Virat Kohli gets out early, when centurion KL Rahul gets out early and when [Rohit] Sharma makes 30-35 runs and then gets out after settling in, any batting line-up would have come under pressure. But the cricketing matter of Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya is of a different kind. They look at the boundaries, they eye sixes instead of worrying about making a mistake and getting out. Although one mistake would have resulted in the innings nosediving because it was such a precarious situation. But the two batted outstandingly. Pant made some 70-odd (78). Similarly, Hardik Pandya, who blew hot-and-cold against extreme pace, on this pitch batted so well with Rishabh Pant against spin and medium pace.”
The new Indian players are not afraid to take risks and he was all praise for Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Shardul Thakur too.
“Shardul turned out to be a hero with the bat. Played an innings of 30 off 21 balls. So, the heroes were limitless. Who all do we talk about?”
“Shardul then took four wickets and Bhuvi further lifted his game in this final and tore apart the openers. His consistency is remarkable. Be it to the right-hander or the left-hander, he doesn’t give room to anyone,” stated Ramiz.
