    Neither did Bangladesh, the brilliant TINO BEST, DARREN SAMMY and FIDEL EDWARDS were running in at them!! .

    Virat Kohli by a large a margin IMO. 17 international 100's already.

    **** he looks like a douche there.

    But he sure is quality. Add Rahane and Sharma and India are looking pretty for batsmen in the future.

    All depends on what you consider young to be, for me I don't consider 24 as young but if you are including that age range then Kohli is probably the winner. Pujara is even older but as for mentioning Hughes The guy averages mid 30's in his 21st test ffs.

    Too early to mention Root yet, very promising but not played anywhere near enough to judge and also is yet to play any cricket at home. Bairstow hasn't secured a place in the side so can't be considered.

    Must admit I am surprised WW left out Brathwaite.

    Tbf to Hughes and young batsmen in general there will always be disparities in how fast they develop. I'm pretty sure the gap between several of the guys mentioned in this thread will be smaller than it is now when they hit 30.

    maybe, but I still think Pujara is a cut above the other batsmen mentioned ITT.

    No mention of Chandimal in the OP is strange but this one easily belongs to Kohli. He's definitely the best young batsman around right now.

    Phillip Hughes is 24 years old

    All of these guys are better than Powell.
    Don't have a super strong opinion about the Bangladeshis (except for Tamin who seems pretty good), but yeah agreed. Ditto Bairstow.

    He's been in terrible form of late and has been rightly dropped, but the lad had a decent start at test level, four 50s aged 18 is not to be sniffed at!! ,

    A lot of people are on the Kohli bangwagon and no doubt the lad is good but when him and Darren Bravo were on the same pitch in TWO different series home and away again there was only ONE winner, and their averages at test level tells a similar story .
