His stupendous outing with the bat in the recently concluded IPL earned him a spot in the national squad. And needless to say, he did not disappoint. He grabbed the opportunity with both of his hands and hit it right out of the park. Although he is still young and has much to learn, however, it is entirely possible that he could fill the void for the best middle order batsmen that has been created ever since Suresh Raina hung up his boots.

Irrespective of whichever position he plays in, be it 4 or 5, it is a given that he will be one of the Indian players to look for during the face off against Pakistan.
