Sunil Gavaskar: First of all, Sunil Gavaskar was a legendary and renowned Indian batsman. He has recently shown his admiration for new players rising through the ranks in Indian cricket.
The bold style of cricket that players like Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan play are evident by the double hundreds they score at such an early age.

He believes that these athletes are aware that if they finish one successful IPL season. They will be considered again for national consideration.
Here is what Sunil Gavaskar had to say well about youthful talent in Indian cricket in an article he published for Mid-Day:
“Since they have the safety net of an IPL agreement. They are not concerned about getting let go from the national squad.
When disqualification from the national squad is not a concern, a player may play bindaas cricket because the IPL has at least 14 games. That can be played to distract people from the international shortcomings.”

“The Batsmen Scored Two double centuries in one-day international matches in the past month or so. Both of the innings were outstanding performances by young players with a bright future and a tonne of assurance.
People are in their early twenties, therefore it is totally up to them how they want to spend their future.
