New Delhi. Indian Premier League is famous for its fours and sixes. Cricketers have been making a place in the national team by performing well in this T20 league. In IPL 2024, many Indian youngsters are attracting the attention of selectors with their flamboyant play. 3 young batsmen are scoring runs at a strike rate of more than 190. But they have little hope of getting any benefit from this performance. Yes, the foreign batsmen who are scoring runs at 190+ strike rate are fully expected to play in the T20 World Cup to be held in June.

In the current season of the Indian Premier League i.e. IPL 2024, there are 8 batsmen who have scored 100 or more runs at a strike rate of more than 190. These include India's Dinesh Karthik, Abhishek Sharma, Ashutosh Sharma and Abdul Samad. Foreign batsmen who have done this include Heinrich Klaasen, Travis Head, Tristan Stubbs and Andre Russell.

Talking about Indian batsmen, three batsmen scoring runs at 190+ strike rate are uncapped, that is, they have not played any match for the Indian team yet. 23 year old Abhishek Sharma has scored 211 runs in 6 matches at a strike rate of 197.19. Ashutosh Sharma has scored 156 runs in 4 matches at a strike rate of 205.26. 22 year old Abdul Samad has scored 106 runs in 4 innings of 6 matches at a strike rate of 225.53. Whereas Dinesh Karthik has scored 226 runs in 6 innings of 7 matches at a strike rate of 205.45.

Abhishek Sharma opens for Sunrisers Hyderabad while Abdul Samad plays in the middle-lower order in the same team. 25 year old Ashutosh Sharma bats at number six-seven for Punjab Kings. If we talk about contending for the Indian team, it seems to be a very difficult challenge for these three. In opening, names like Rohit Sharma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Rituraj Gaikwad are far ahead of Abhishek. Similarly, if Ashutosh Sharma and Abdul Samad want a place in the middle order, then they will have to go ahead of batsmen like Shivam Dubey and Rinku Singh. Compared to these three, Dinesh Karthik's claim to return to Team India is stronger. However, many former cricketers like Irfan Pathan believe that the Indian selectors should give a chance to someone young instead of DK.

The Indian T20 team for the World Cup to be held in June is to be announced on May 1. If we look at the history till now, there is very little possibility that the Indian selectors will think of giving any batsman a debut in the World Cup. On the other hand, there is every possibility that South Africa's Heinrich Klaasen, Australia's Travis Head and West Indies' Andre Russell will be seen playing in the T20 World Cup. 23 year old Tristan Stubbs may also get a place in the South African team.
