Generally, I ask for systematic player development but Tendulkar taught me that if there is an absolute prodigy we should fast-track them into the A-team or may be the India-Red/Blue teams and then the A-team. Especially for Mumbai because their players play competitively at a high level and get good coaching in schools, etc. from an early age. So prodigies are more likely to shine at an early age if they are from Mumbai (and other places that have such cricket culture).

He is youngest to score a double century in a list A match. Not heard much of him before but looks a great talent.

PKB mentioned Shivalkar and Goel with respect to Shahbaz Nadeem. With all due respect, I beg to differ. Shivalkar and Goel had averages under 20! 18 something and 19 something. Nadeem is 28 something. Huge, huge difference even accounting for different eras.

The Ranji semifinals are more or less clear. Gujarat (who won by 464 runs over Goa) will play Bengal (up by 443 runs going into the fifth day against Odisha) in one semifinal, while Saurashtra (with a massive first innings lead over Andhra) and Karnataka (with a narrow first innings lead over J&K) will play the other semifinal.

Sarfaraz Khan of Mumbai has had a fabulous season. He is supposedly fitter too. He should be kept an eye on. Very good domestic FC batting record.

Putting a qualifying of 650 runs, the following are the batting leaders by average: Khan, Dalal, Dogra, T. Kohli, P. Bisht, Mandeep Singh, S.K. Patel. All in the lower division except Khan and Mandeep. These two should be rewarded with A-team spots. While Mandeep is not too young, at 28, he is not too old either.

Putting a qualifying of 36 wickets, the bowling leaders by average are: Vinay Kumar, Udeshi, Unadkat, RS Yadav, HV Patel. All of these are in the lower division except Unadkat, I believe. Unadkat is the only one in the upper division. 65 wickets at 12.16 bringing his team back when Gujarat threatened in the semis. What a season! He should be back in the A-team.

Saurashtra beat Bengal to win Ranji trophy for the first time. They have reached final 4 times in last 8 years though. This is an article on their captain,Jaydev Unadkat-

Unadkat deserves India call-up again: Ghavri
