He has come into the scene very late going by Indian standards where you find people are catapulted into the main squad from the Under NINETEEN championships. He has had good innings so far as part of the young squad and then in Ranjis but probably never could make the cut as long as the others were there. He has made a good start, stupendous as you say but what will define is career is consistency and also to a certain extent how he can deal with the faster pitches in Australia, or UK or SA when we tour those places. Anyway, a good start and let's hope the best for him and doesn't fall by the wayside like so many who sparkled earlier like Kamble, Amre etc.

Well I agree that he was fortunate to get a start in Test cricket and to score record breaking century yet "Delhi is far" . It was long due for him to make a start in test cricket and he had to wait for his day since BCCI and Selection committee has long rope for veterans like Gautam/ Sehwag/ Vijay to overcome failure after hit by success and money. Shikhar is hard-working player and deserves to earn money and name for himself by contrubuting to India's success in Cricket. Lets hope and keep fingers crossed till he ventures English/ SA/ NZ and Aussies weather and conditions.

Too early to say, itz only beginning and he is to prove himself further in sub-continent as well as overseas. But these guys can get hold of their slots, they hv probability to challenge even some of Tendulkar's records in future.
There are many who started carrier flamboyantly but lost in the memories of history though they some of them were really talented. Plz. look in to the track records of ppl. like Srikanth, Sandeep Patel, Yashpal Sharma, Kambli, etc...., once the spot is fixed them they could never able tackle it and regain their form & rhythm.
