#10YearChallenge: How the face of Indian cricket has changed in the last 10 years
Role of Indian Premier League in the evolution of Indian cricket
In 2009, the IPL in its second year was at its infancy stage. But now IPL has become a big platform for the youngsters to showcase their talent and press their claims for a national call. IPL has played a huge role in unearthing fresh talent and nurturing senior players.
What IPL has done is that it has made the selection process transparent and talented players get their due recognition. IPL has given more financial security for all the young upcoming cricketers though at times it causes unexpected windfall for some relatively unknown players. Going forward, a proper counseling system should be in place for the younger players to handle success and stardom.
On the footsteps of IPL, state associations like Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Maharashtra have come with their own form of a local league to identify talent at the grass root level.
