Have a look at the bright upcoming talent that Indian cricket has. These young stars make the future of Indian cricket very promising.
In a country like India, cricket is one of the biggest sports and has a very big influence over the country. Over the years, the ICC U19 World Cup has been a grooming ground for youngsters to make a name for themselves before they make their mark in international cricket. Here are a few rising cricketers that you need to keep your eye on-

Playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the Mumbai-born cricketer got very few opportunities to bat as he was playing alongside a top-heavy batting line-up, but made full use of whatever chance he got.
He is a young lad from Delhi has turned heads in the U19 cricketing scene recently and is surely destined for big things in the future. Pant made his Ranji Trophy debut at the age of 18 and struck a half-century at a brisk pace in just his second first-class innings. The knock, which came against Bengal, saw him hit 57 from just 71 deliveries, during which he smashed 3 sixes.
Bowling has been a problem for the Men in Blue. The fast bowling department, especially, has been a big worry. A lot of Indian fast bowlers have promised a lot in their youth but faded away later. One hopes that Avesh Khan, India’s newest pace bowling hope – doesn’t fall into that category. He has already played first-class cricket for his state.
