Saurabh Tiwary, the Mumbai Indians batsman, believes that a successful run in the Indian Premier League is a better way to get noticed by the national selectors than grinding it out in domestic cricket.

"You cannot compare the IPL to domestic cricket because even if you score 20 runs in this tournament, it gets coverage. But in domestic cricket it all depends on the media coverage - if that is good then your performance gets noticed," said the 20-year old.

Tiwary, who hails from Jharkhand, has had a good start to IPL 3, scoring 169 runs at a strike-rate of 146.95. His batting style and appearance have a striking resemblance to his more famous state senior, India captain MS Dhoni, which have inevitably led to comparisons. Tiwary acknowledged that Dhoni has had an impact on him, in the few games they have played together at the domestic level.

"Dhoni is quite senior to me and I have played very few matches with him. But whenever I have played with him, he reads the situation very early. I have learnt a lot from him. He also talks about things other than cricket and how you should live life,'' Tiwary said.

Tiwary's success for Mumbai at the top of the order has come in for praise from his IPL captain Sachin Tendulkar, who promoted him above seasoned Twenty20 batsmen such as Dwayne Bravo and Kieron Pollard.

"It feels good when a captain shows confidence in your abilities and sends you ahead of the senior players," Tiwary said.
