Default Younger Players and Exposures

Note: Senior players and their contribution will be discussed separately. This is only for the up and coming young players.

We keep hearing that we are not giving them enough exposures. And due to that we will suffer tremendously once the senior bunches leave.

But I disagree that younger players are not getting opportunities. In fact, I doubt if we should even call some of them young anymore. Majority are in their mid 20s and north of that.

We lump all these players into the "younger category" and that is very misleading. So I am separating them below based on age and # of matches played.

In order of matches played: Test / ODI / T20

Group 1

Age 26
Debuted in 2014

Age 25
Debuted in 2014

Age 26
Debuted in 2013

Age 25
Debuted in 2012

Group 2

Age 23
Debuted in 2015


Age 20
Debuted in 2016

Age 22
Debuted in 2016


for comparison with younger players from other teams

LK Rahul (India)
Age 26

Kusal Mendis (SL)
Age 23

Babar Azam (Pak)
Age 23


So clearly our Group A had enough exposures and has been in the international scene for almost 4-5 years. Group B does not provide a lot of hope either. So instead of Sabbirs/Soumyas/Anamuls maybe we should give more chances to Litton or can draft in even younger players like Shanto.
