Chennai talent K Srikkanth: This Master Blaster of an opening batsman and partner to another former caaptain, would have also been picked by any IPl team.
His belligerent batting which left even the Little Master Gavaskar watching in awe at the other end when the two opened for India, bears testimony to this argument.
A few of his strokes against the likes of Andy Roberts in the 1983 World Cup and later in the Worlld Series Cricket competition in Australia are remembered to this day. What’s more ,there are few players who can field like this dashing former Chennai talent who had also served Indian cricket as a selector .
In the Srikkanth mould, one could add another chairman of selection committee and a Mumbai talent Sandip Patil who would have fitted the IPL style of cricket to a T, so to speak.
