The recently concluded ODI between Australia and India at home speaks a lot about the young talents in the present Indian cricket team. The 22 year old youngster, Virat Kohli, scored a fantastic century to put a lead of 1-0 in the India-Australia series that is going on in the home soil. In the absence of the seniors players like Sachin, Sehwag and Gambir, the youngsters (Raina and Kohli) came out with flying colours in the first ODI against Australia. This shows that India is full of young talents and it is the job of the selectors to pick the right combination for a match.

Kohli has an average of just under 45 in ODI. Now he has 1245 runs in just 32 innings. He has a strike rate that is above 80 which is not bad for ODIs. He is also called as the Dravid in the making. He plays alongside Dravid for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League. Hope so he gets a place in the upcoming world cup in 2011 which is to be hosted by the Asian cricket playing countries.
