Many former Indians under 19 cricket captains including Prithvi Shaw, Parthiv Patel, Mohammad Kaif, and Virat Kohli (Current Indian Team Captain) went on to play for team India. If Garg is able to perform in the IPL, his chances of joining the big boys will become stronger.
Kartik Tyagi shocked everyone with his fast and swing capabilities in the tournament. He was able to take 11 wickets at an average of 13.9, which made him one of the top picks for Rajasthan Royals.
