Why selectors of Indian Team haven't selected few youngsters?

I am talking about Paul Valthaty, Rayudu, Rahul Sharma and one more from Delhi Dare Devills who bowls more than 140 speed. I don't know how the selectors think about. Always they will think of the players who all ready played international cricket. Still BCCI has not started about looking fast bowlers in the country. What is your opinion about this friend?

You are right. IPL4 gave a glimpse of the abundant talent in the country. All the same when the team selectors ignore the budding youngsters we feel sad. This must be happening in all cricket associations. The old guard cannot be stopped all of a sudden. Country's prestige also needs to be safeguarded. Valthaty,Rayudu and a few others showed their capabilities for sure. All the same some more consistancy is needed. That must be the reason they did not get the chance for this time.

You are right my friend. BCCI ignored these youngsters who are performing extremely well in the IPL season 4. They should look for a good fast bowler & an exploding batsman who fits in, in the middle order batting line up. But again they should consider the performances of these players in 50 over game & test cricket. As we've seen, they are good enough to play T-20 format but what about 50 over format? That's the question that would be running in their mind I think.
