ManPreet S Gony will be the first Indian ever to feature as a star debutant, with an established fan base. All credits to DLF IPL. It took 5 ODIs for Dhoni to reach Vizag for a blasting 148 runs innings against Pakistan to reach stardom. No one knew Yuvi before his debut. Gautam Gambhir had no recognition despite of years of successful domestic seasons before Debut. However, Dhoni had recognition in east zone domestic cricket. But, Gony is now a recognized face on global level. Hopefully this could be a blasting debut for the matured youngster.

Very few of U-19 cricketers like Parthiv, Pathan were known faces but they never had that amount of stardom which now Gony carries due to IPL. Success of IPL is evident after seven days, business channels covering profit-loss accounts of franchisees, anyhow news channels managing to make IPL still into News, also proposed IPL challenger series confirmed in September, and discussions over successive IPL formats with anticipated buyout policies.

There is a lot to feature in Indian cricket. The cricket season has been a continuous process since India’s Ireland visit last year. Due to IPL there had been no break from cricket. But, fortunately there is a big pool of talents enabling a perpetual rotation schedules among players.

ManPreet Gony’s last time inclusion in squad is a good sign for Indian pace attack. Selectors now always will have a pool of ample options.
