Shreevats Goswami Introduction

Back when India won the ICC U19 World Cup in 2008, there was a lot of interest about a few players from that crop of exciting players. Many expected the skipper Virat Kohli and the all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja to be big names in the future. A decade later, Kohli is the skipper of the Indian side, and Jadeja is one of the pillars of the side. In that side, there was also a very promising wicket-keeper named Shreevats Goswami.

Many expected him to be a major part of the Indian side, but that never happened. During the initial days of the Indian Premier League, interest was high about him. Though he still is a part of the competition, one might raise a valid point that Goswami did not realise his true potential. But in any case, he has made some sort of a comeback in the past few years.
