Players to watch out for
Harmeet Singh (Seattle Orcas)
After India won the U19 World Cup in Australia in 2012, Ian Chappell ranked Harmeet as the world’s second best spinner after Graeme Swann. Due to his fluid bowling movement and ability to release the ball with languid ease, such high praise was followed by comparisons to the great Bishan Bedi. There was a competition among teams to obtain the left arm spinner at a time when IPL teams had to pick up Indian domestic players outside of the draught. Such was his promise with the ball that it took a personal phone call from then-Rajasthan Royals skipper Virat Kohli to sway Harmeet’s decision to join the Royals as his maiden IPL squad in 2013.
Unfortunately, it was his first and last season, as Harmeet became an untouchable commodity in Indian cricket following the 2013 spot-fixing scandal. Harmeet was exonerated nearly immediately after a BCCI investigation, but he became a byproduct of the entire incident over time. He severed links with his hometown of Mumbai after winning nine Ranji Trophy games in six seasons. In the following seasons, he left the comforts of home to play for Jammu & Kashmir and Tripura.
Unmukt Chand (Lost Angeles Knight Riders)
Following his sensational century against Australia in the 2012 U19 World Cup, Chand was heralded as the next great thing in Indian cricket, but he blew hot and cold on the Indian domestic circuit. Experts believed Chand’s India debut was only a matter of time. Ian Chappell continued, “If Chand does not play for India soon, he will stagnate.” It has been learned that he came very near to being called up by India for the home ODI series against the West Indies in 2014, following his consecutive hundreds in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Milind Kumar (Texas Super Kings)
At the age of 20, Milind Kumar made his Ranji Trophy debut with a hundred against Harshal Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal. A year later, he astounded Kevin Pietersen and Ian Bell with a valiant 78* off 85 deliveries to lead Delhi to victory over England. The Delhi Daredevils signed him for two seasons in 2014, but he was released after only one game. Despite his early promise, Kumar’s appearances with Delhi were irregular, and he could only muster 29 games in six seasons with scant success.
Shubham Ranjane (Seattle Orcas)
Shubham Ranjane was once one of those rare breeds in Indian cricket who could tonk the ball hard while also bowling medium pace with ease. Ranjane is a complete package as a T20 player, with a variety of strokes, raw power, and a repertoire of slower balls that he executes with great success. After getting passed over by Maharashtra after three white ball games spread over two seasons, he opted to go down an uncharted path. While many of his contemporaries would have chosen to work in forgettable north eastern states after being rejected by their home states, Ranjane chose to try his luck in Mumbai of all places.
Tajinder Singh Dhillon (San Francisco Unicorns)
Dhillon, a tall opening batsman, was a late bloomer in the Indian domestic game, making his first-class debut at the age of 25. He was an exception in that he climbed the Indian cricketing ladder despite never playing age-group cricket. Growing up in Agra, Dhillon was never considered for any of UPCA’s age group sides.
