Indian cricket is certainly in safe hands with a number of young players impressing the viewers with their performances in the domestic circuit. The country has produced some of the best batsmen and bowlers the world has eve
1. Prithvi Shaw:
Although the opening batsman is out of favour at the moment due to his below-par performance in Australia, the experts are well-aware of his capability. Prithvi Shaw is a prolific batsman, who can ace the opening role in the future. He has scored plenty of runs in first-class cricket and it is only a matter of time, before he announces himself on the international stage. The sooner the better for him and the Indian team.
2. Shubman Gill:
The dashing batsman has all but proved his credentials at the top level during India’s tour of Australia. Shubman Gill has established himself as the test opener alongside Rohit Sharma. However, India would want more from him, especially while playing in the home conditions. The batsman has failed to score a big one, but his capability is undisputed. The best thing about Shubman Gill’s position is that the opener is getting to bat with one of India’s all-time great ODI players, and such an experience could go a long way to help the youngster establish himself as one of the best Indian batsmen.
3. Yashasvi Jaiswal:
The left-hander came into the limelight when he was awarded Man of the tournament for an amazing run in the U19 world cup held in South Africa. With an amazing first-class average and strike rate, Yashasvi Jaiswal is on his way to greatness and could end up receiving a call to play in the senior team soon.
4. Arjun Tendulkar:
Son of master blaster, Arjun Tendulkar is a left-handed fast bowler who has impressed in the List-A career. He was purchased by Mumbai Indians in this year’s IPL auction. Arjun has been putting up a decent performance, especially in the T20’s, and a lot will depend on his performance in the IPL to determine whether he could earn an Indian call up or not.
5. Ishan Kishan:
A formidable batsman in the Mumbai Indians’ contingent, Ishan Kishan has come through the ranks quickly. There are plenty of reasons to believe that he is going to be the future of Indian cricket. One such reason is the consistency of this man and the hand-eye coordination. Ishan Kishan has a first-class average of nearly 40 and he often smacks them big in the IPL.
6. Rishabh Pant:
The Indian version of Adam Gilchrist, Rishabh Pant is already a superstar in the making. The left-handed batsman and wicketkeeper has taken the cricketing world by storm after his brilliant performance in the last tour and the Indian Premier League. He has a long and rewarding career in front of him and the fans would like to see him making the most of his time out in the middle. If Rishabh manages to stay fit for the next ten years or so, he may end up creating many records along the way. The gifted left-hander is capable of turning the matches single-handedly in favour of India and we have already seen a glimpse of that ability.
7. Priyam Garg:
The top-order batsman from Uttar Pradesh has been a treat to watch from early days. It won’t be an overstatement to say that the 20-year-old is destined to etch his name in the history of Indian cricket. Priyam Garg has the right technique to succeed at the top level. His stroke play and power-hitting has improved quite a lot and he’s most likely to make his way into the national side if he continues to play in the same manner.
8. Ravi Bishnoi:
The leg-spinner is known for bowling his heart out, no matter the situation. Ravi Bishnoi played for India in the 2020 U19 World Cup and finished as the tournament’s highest wicket-taker. Wrist spin has been making the headlines across the world in the recent time and Ravi Bishnoi, with his extraordinary talent, may turn out to be another Yuzvendra Chahal for India, if everything goes according to the plan for him.
9. Atharva Ankolekar:
Left-arm orthodox bowler, Atharva Ankolekar was a handful in the last year’s U19 World Cup. His stakes have increased big time after putting decent performances in the domestic circuit. Atharva may well follow the footsteps of Ravindra Jadeja to become one of the trusted spin bowlers of India. His accuracy and wicket-taking ability could surely give him the edge.
10. Sushant Mishra:
The 20-year-old is a gifted left-arm fast bowler who has achieved a lot of success of late. He is among the best left-arm seamers in the state-level cricket. Sushant Mishra was a net bowler at the IPL 2020 and it is no secret that the youngster would have gained a lot of experience from bowling at some of the best in the business. The future looks bright for the young gun as there are a lot of opportunities in the Indian first-class cricket system.
11. Kartik Tyagi
Since making his first-class debut for Uttar Pradesh, Kartik Tyagi hasn’t looked back. He has performed quite well in the Ranji trophy and Vijay Hazare trophy. The left-arm fast medium bowler would be itching to hit the straps in the upcoming IPL for Rajashtan Royals and knock at the door of Indian selectors sooner than later. He has immense potential to lead the Indian attack somewhere down the line.
This was the list of some of the notable future stars of Indian cricket. However, there are plenty of names across the country and it would be very difficult to name all of them.
