10 of the world’s best young cricket players who all have the potential to be major stars
Ollie Pope – England
As one of the few players on the list who has already established themselves worldwide, Ollie is a name on the lips of every England & Surrey fan after brilliant performances in T20 and the County Championship. Ollie had his breakout season in 2018 when he won Surrey’s Player of the Year Award after averaging 70 runs per game and made his test debut at the Home of Cricket for the Three Lions.
Although Ben Foakes has been known to keep for Surrey, Ollie also can perform that role, as well as bat in the top order, scoring over 3,000 runs for his club. As the potential turns into reality, the name “Ollie Pope” will be known among cricket fans worldwide.
Rishabh Pant – India
The talented batsman has already hit over 1500 runs in all formats for the India National Team and is a regular starter in their Test, ODI & T20I matches. Rishabh, like many other Indian batsmen, started in the IPL for Delhi Daredevils and has already appeared in 50+ matches. He made his international T20 debut at only 19 years old and his durability and stamina allowed him to be a starting batsman and keep wicket for most matches. Although his wicket-keeping has been occasionally criticised, he is a popular contender for Rohit Sharma’s place.
Shubman Gill – India
Regarded as one of the most talented and upcoming cricketers, at only 20 years old, Shubman Gill is a consistent top-order batsman who has already played loads of List A and First-Class matches for Punjab in India. Shubman has made two appearances in ODI matches for India, having appeared in the lower order for a tough series against a very strong & balanced New Zealand side. In over 70 combined matches for Punjab, Shubman has recorded close to 5,000 runs and has been highlighted as a key figure to look out for in the India Test & ODI side.
Tom Banton – England
Tom is full of confidence after hitting big runs in the Vitality Blast as a starter for Somerset, Banton is one of the most highly ranked batsmen in England. Although failing to hit the ground running in his six appearances for the Three Lions, a bit more experience for the 21-year-old should transform him into a spectacular cricketer. He has surpassed 900 runs in 30 matches and has played overseas competitively in India & Australia.
