India A vs New Zealand A: Top 5 young cricketers in focus


The transition period of Indian cricket seems to be right around the corner. This is perhaps the best time, then, to take a look at the best emerging youngsters in the country. The recently started New Zealand A tour of India will be of great importance to these boys. Even for the Kiwis, a couple of youngsters would be fancying their chances of making it to the national squad. So here’s a look at the list of players to watch out for on this tour:

Vijay Zol

Vijay Zol

Vijay Zol

Zol is one of the most promising young batsmen in the country today. He was chosen as the skipper of the Under-19 side sent to the tour of Sri Lanka. On that tour, he showed his brilliance and oodles of class when he finished as the highest run-getter in both the one-day and the Test matches.

In List A matches, he scored 166 runs in 3 innings, at an average of 55.33, which included 2 fifty-plus scores. In addition to this, he made 301 runs in 2 first class innings, at a whopping average of 150.50. Each of his innings was a century.

Zol has finally got the reward for his sensational performance by getting a chance to play against the Kiwis. He is one of the most impressive players to look out for in this series.
