Ashok Malhotra was a very good batsman though he did not do much justice to his own potential.
He though remains a keen observer of the game of the Cricket and is running an academy where he coaches youngsters who dream of making it big. He also offers his views as an expert to the TV channels.
He says that youngsters should concentrate on Test Cricket if they want to become great players because it is the best method to prove their worth. They should simply focus on Twenty20 wave.
