The year 2023 will be crucial for cricket on the international circuit. All nations in the world will be concentrating heavily on the WTC final at the oval and the ICC 50-over World Cup, which will be held in India, as they get ready to battle it out against one another on the biggest stage of them all.
To claim the trophy, they need at least one game-changer who can set the tone for his side and can play a big role in his team’s campaign.
Let’s take a look at the top 5 players to watch out for in 2023
- Nicholas Pooran
Pooran sets an excellent example with the bat, and his middle-order devastation makes him the ideal counterbalance to players like Shai Hope and Shamarh Brooks at the top. He is not just a fantastic middle-order batter, but holds the ability to change the game for you with his powerful strokes.
West Indies will need Pooran to step up as both a batsman and captain with the goal of directly qualifying for the 50-over World Cup.
It was obvious to play Ravindra Jadeja whenever he was in the squad. Axar Patel received a spot in the dugout when Jadeja faced an injury during the Asia Cup 2022 and playing on his spot since then.
Jaddu’s age and the fact that he is continuously hurt, however, have left a wide open door for Axar Patel to claim that place as his own. Although his skill with the ball is obvious to all, the cricket world is less familiar with his mastery of the bat. He is still under 30 and it won’t be long before he replaces Jadeja in the side.
The young Pakistani pace sensation made his Asia Cup debut against India only recently, but the way he bowled in that match and throughout the competition gave the impression that he had been a member of the Pakistani team for a long time.
The way he bowled to KL Rahul and then dismissed him in the very first over of the innings grabbed everyone’s attention.
The line of young, quick, and aggressive Pakistani pacers who bowl with everything they’ve got continues with Naseem. The young bowler has a searing pace and bowls with a poise that belies his young age. Naseem had the skills necessary to succeed for this Pakistani team, along with an effective in-swinger.
In Indian domestic cricket right now, Yashasvi Jaiswal is a remarkable prodigy. Only 20 years old, he has a very promising international career ahead of him and Jaiswal unquestionably set to make his international debut soon.
Jaiswal has played in 7 first-class matches, totaling 1015 runs at an average of 84.58. His List-A statistics showed 1511 runs from 32 games at an average of 53.96.
Hasaranga has been the star of this Sri Lankan team and their most dangerous player.
As demonstrated in the Asia Cup final against Pakistan, his cunning leg-spin combined with his ability to tonk big ones with the bat is a huge advantage for a Sri Lankan team that is ready to emerge from the low phase after years of mediocrity and incompetence. As the Lankan tigers prepare to roar on the big stage, Hasaranga’s performance with both the bat and the ball will be essential.
