Former India skipper Sourav Ganguly said that India need to look beyond the T20 World Cup and look to find young talent and given them opportunities to prove their worth at the highest level.

"The most important thing for India is to not look at the World T20 next year. Before the last World Cup there was too much noise about it and that sometimes is not good. What they need to do is pick the best possible players and give them consistent opportunities, as there is some serious talent in the domestic circuit," Sourav Ganguly in a column for the Times of India.

He also felt that the team management and the selectors have done the right thing by giving chances to the likes of Deepak Chahar, Khaleel Ahmed and Navdeep Saini.

"These guys, with time and maturity, will see Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami as their role models and this will be a healthy sign for Indian fast bowling. Spinners like Rahul Chahar, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal will also keep everyone on their toes."

Ganguly also said that KL Rahul will be under pressure to keep his number four spot in limited overs after losing his Test spot. He has been dropped for the upcoming home series against South Africa.

"With Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan at the top as the best possible opening pair, KL Rahul will be pushed. He has lost his place in Test cricket due to indifferent form and the likes of Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey will keep him on his toes if he wants to hold on to the No.4 slot."
