'They are taking this game to a new level': Hogg applauds Indian youngsters
Former Australia wrist spinner Brad Hogg has recently made a huge prediction about Indian
cricket as he believes it will become a powerhouse of world cricket in the upcoming 10
years. He also sees a lot of potential in the youngsters of Indian cricket and feels that the
management should back them so that they could do well in the upcoming years as well as
in the most important T20 World Cup which is scheduled to take place later this year.
However, he also expressed that the players like Rishabh Pant and Ishan Kishan have really
impressed him. While Pant has been in a prolific form since the Australia tour, Ishan Kishan
has made wonders in his T20I debut where he smashed a convincing fifty and helped his
side win as well. And, the 50-year-old veteran believed that the sooner India depends more
on the youngsters, the quicker they will start dominating world cricket.
"I am loving this lively Indian National team. I think after the T20 World Cup later this year,
they should make a few more changes. Add a bit of depth with a bit of youth, because they
are taking this game to a new level, taking Indian cricket to a new level in all formats. Indian
cricket is going to be the powerhouse over the next decade," Hogg said on his YouTube
However, he also claimed that Ishan should get more chances in the opening slot alongside
Rohit Sharma and if can manage to score on a constant basis, he can be a strong contender
as India's T20 opener for the coming series as well as for the T20 World Cup at home.
"I think they’ve got to stick with Ishan Kishan. He is young, he is explosive, he’s got a good
strike-rate, he takes on the quick bowlers and spinners as well. He takes the pressure of
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma as we heard Kohli say in the press conference. Rahul is out of
form. Ishan Kishan, this is his opportunity to take and he's got two games at least to take t
