Video - Bright Future Ahead For Young Indians - Sunil Gavaskar

Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar tells us that he thinks there is a bright future ahead for Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

In this exclusive interview, we asked him to talk about the current Indian team and which young players he has been most impressed with.

All four players will also be looking to impress as India begin their campaign in the Asia Cup 2014 against Bangladesh.

Kohli leads the side in the absence of MS Dhoni through injury while Dhawan and Pujara will be expected to score runs, Pujara in the squad for the first time at a major tournament.

Now that the likes of Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar and VVS Laxman have all retired, it is over to the next generation of Indians to maintain their country's place among the best sides in the world.
