Mumbai: Paul Valthaty has done his reputation no harm in the IPL, but he has more to do before he can get a call-up to the Mumbai Ranji team, Mumbai captain Wasim Jaffer has said.
"This performance [in the IPL] will help him. He has made those runs against quality bowling and I'm sure the selectors will keep that in mind," Jaffer told the Times of India. "However, you can't judge someone for first-class cricket based on performance in Twenty20 games.
"It's a different format. He has to do well in tournaments like the Times Shield [in which Valthaty plays for Air India] and prove himself."
