Sachin credits IPL, not Ranji Trophy, for India's recent success

Indian batting legend Sachin Tendulkar has credited the Indian Premier League (IPL) more than the Ranji Trophy to the recent successes of the Indian cricket team.

Sachin believes that the IPL has given the youngsters exposure and made them believe that they can compete against anyone in the world before pointing out that everyone takes notice only when a player does well in the IPL. He also praised the likes of Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Mayank Agarwal for their performances in the recently-concluded Test series in Australia where India created history by winning the series 2-1.

Talking during an IDBI Federal Life Insurance event in Mumbai, Sachin said, "IPL, I think, has had a tremendous contribution. It has given exposure to our youngsters; to believe that they can compete against anyone in the world. I think we are in that fortunate position to dominate in the world. We have the right balance but overall I feel (if) you do well in the IPL, everyone takes notice."

He added, "Those guys may have done really well in Ranji Trophy or in the Duleep Trophy but the rest of the world does not know about it. IPL takes you to a different level altogether. That has been our strength and in the last 10 years of IPL, we have seen more and more young talent flourish, and that is only because the right platform was provided."
