Babar was quite the Under-19 batsman...heard of him since then. He always had that appetite for run-scoring.

Lokesh actually is the one who worked the hardest. He was out of favor after his under-19 days, then worked like crazy in the domestics. He had the resource of Rahul Dravid to his advantage though. Fitness is key. Practice makes perfect.

And what about Kusal Mendis? He instantly became one of the most liked batsmen in World Cricket for me after he made that mammoth ton against the Aussies in that series where they whitewashed them. What's most intriguing is his promotion to open the batting (in limited overs) by coach Hatursinghe...he took to it like second nature. Once you're a batsman, you can bat anywhere in the order
