Chandigarh: The stage is decked up to witness the fifth edition of the Indian Premier League Twenty20, starting April 2012. The Twenty20 tournament is a good platform for youngsters as it provides an opportunity for a player to select what kind of cricket he wants to play.

Punjab’s Rahul Sharma is a perfect example who got the limelight. Currently, he is on tour to Australia.

In the previous edition, few players failed to get enough opportunity to floor their talent. One among them was Bipul Sharma of Kings XI Punjab. Bipul, out of 14 matches played in four matches and scored only 23 runs.

Sachin Tendulkar led Mumbai Indian’s Sarul Kanwar was allowed to show his blistering batting performance just in a single match. 

Due to the negligence with the cricket crazy youths in the IPL4, not a single player could pave his way for the international cricket.
