The Future Looks Bright for India

James TuckerContributor INovember 26, 2008

With the Indian Cricket Team starting to come to the forefront of the cricketing world, people are paying more attention to the talent available to them. With the current crop of youth and experience they almost look unbeatable against a battered England Team.

With the batting genius of Tendulkar, Sehwag, Yuvraj, and Dhoni, there seems to be much more than adequate support from the young talent.

The likes of Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina and the slightly more experienced Gautam Gambhir are coming through and showing what they are made of whilst the main men are still scoring the runs.

With the likes of Badrinath, M Vijay ,and Dhawan (who I saw a fair bit of in the Under 19s World Cup a few years back and showed much potential) coming through, the future looks good.

It's not just an impressive line-up in the batting department that is helping Indian success. The bowling of experienced Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh has proven to be a thorn in the side of the Aussies as well as the English team in the current ODI series.

The most impressive, I feel, in the current Indian team is 20-year-old Delhi man, Ishant Sharma. He has many big performances in him as he already seems to have a lot of maturity in his bowling with his variations, however, he just has to sort out his no-ball bowling.

Not only does Sharma already have one of crickets greats in his pocket, Ricky Ponting, he is showing the potential to become a world beater.

Also, India have to back-up talents of Piyush Chawla and Amit Mishra to add adequate support for the bowlers. However, they will have to wait their turn as I'm sure Zaheer and Harbhajan have many more overs left in them.
