JOHANNESBURG (AFP) - An action-packed 2009 Indian Premier League has done more than provide entertainment for cricket fans, it has also reminded them of star bowlers missing from the international arena. The best case in point is Indian left-arm seamer Rudra-Pratap Singh, who has taken a back seat over the past 12 months at international level as Ishant Sharma and Zaheer Khan established arguably the worlds best new-ball pairing. However, given the opportunity to showcase his talents in the Twenty20 format, Singh has sparkled for the Deccan Chargers, taking 16 wickets to don the purple cap as the Leagues joint leading wicket-taker. His contribution has made all the difference for the Hyderabad franchise, who have rebounded from finishing last in the inaugural season to become near certainties for the semi-finals next weekend.Its been quite a turnaround, and Singhs personal success has been rewarded with a place in the India squad for the ICC World Twenty20 tournament in England next month. With time on his side, the 23-year-old will hope to force his way back into Indias Test plans, but appreciates competition is stiff.You need luck. I was not in the team for the New Zealand series. Out of a population of 100 million, only 15 make it to the team, he told the Times of India. Yusuf Abdulla. Before his selection for two Twenty20 internationals against Australia last month few had heard of the left-armer, but 14 scalps for Kings XI Punjab has catapulted him to stardom and ensured a place in the Proteas World Twenty20 squad. Its a big achievement for me and I can only think the selectors were looking at me in the IPL because I have not played much international cricket, the 26-year-old said.
