A lot of young stars who have proved themselves at the domestic level are now vying to prove a point at the highest level and in the process, giving England the much needed victories, a word that didn't really have a camaraderie with the 2010 World T20 Champions.
A lot of young stars, but only a few would make it to the English colors.
