T20 World Cup 2024 | 5 Emerging Stars Likely To Shine

The ICC T20 World Cup 2024 is just around the corner with the warm-up games already starting. Every team will look to field their best possible combination in the tournament with a mixture of experience and youngsters. Also, every team has some of those emerging youngsters who could shine for their team in this ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2024. Today, we will see five emerging stars likely to shine for their respective teams.

Five emerging stars to watch out for in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024

(1) Tanzim Hasan Sakib (Bangladesh)

A 21-year-old pacer from Bangladesh will be the one emerging youngster to watch out for in the upcoming marquee tournament. Tanzim impressed everyone when he made his ODI debut against India in Colombo last year. Since then, he has taken 12 wickets in just 7 ODIs till now.

Tanzim is a very good bowler with the new ball and can swing the ball both ways. Although his T20I numbers are not very good, we know what kind of ability he possesses. We have seen him troubling the opposition batters in ODIs.

In T20Is, he has played only 6 games and took 4 wickets with an average of 45.75. But as we said, it’s a very small sample size. He had very good List-A games and a very good outing in the last season of BPL.

Bangladesh Cricket Team will bank on him with the new ball in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. He is one of the most emerging stars, not just in Bangladesh but in world cricket.

(2) Yashasvi Jaiswal (India)

The elegant left-hander from India will surely want to make this opportunity count. He didn’t have a very good IPL 2024, according to his standard. We have seen him doing well in IPL and T20Is in the past and dominating the opposition right from ball one. He was outstanding in the test series against England earlier this year, but couldn’t replicate that form in IPL 2024.

Now, he will have the opportunity to shine for his team and contribute to the team’s success in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. One of the main reasons for him in the team is his mindset and intent right from the word go. He looks to utilize the powerplay and tries to put pressure on the opposition bowlers at the beginning. 

(3) Brandon McMullen (Scotland)

Brandon McMullen is known for his aggressive batting and his ability to score quickly makes him a valuable asset in the team. Also, if he opens the inning in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, he can make full use of the first six overs.

A 24-year-old youngster is also a very agile fielder which makes him a complete package for the team. If he does well in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, Scotland might do well against some of the big teams in their group.

In 9 T20 matches, he has scored 223 runs at a strike rate of 142. In ODIs, he has 631 runs in 16 innings and has picked 24 wickets.

(4) Ryan Rickelton

It’s very uncommon for a player who hasn’t made his T20I debut yet will make it into the T20 WC squad. The team at least looks for experience of a few games in T20Is and domestic or franchise T20 cricket. But the left-hander didn’t play any T20I for South Africa when he got picked in the T20 WC squad. Although he did play a few tests and ODIs, his selection in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 is purely based on his ability.

Now, he has played 3 T20Is for SA recently against West Indies. But that sample size is too small to judge him at the international level. He did so well in domestic cricket and SA20 last season. Rickelton is known for his aggressive approach from ball one and could play a crucial role if he gets the opportunity in the playing XI. SA’s batting is filled with power-hitters, and he might have to sit out. But the selectors took a call and added him to the squad because they know how good this left-hander is.

(5) Harry Brook

Harry Brook is now not an unpopular name. He made his name when he played a new brand of cricket in test format for England. Whatever test cricket Brook has played so far, he only knows one way of batting – an aggressive intent and a positive mindset. No matter what the situation is, he only looks to attack the opposition bowlers.

In T20Is, he hasn’t achieved those massive figures and hasn’t created an impact yet. But looking at his ability and his range of shots in his armory, he will be the one to watch out for in the upcoming T20 WC 2024.

Conclusion

So these are a few emerging stars that we have discussed. A few other youngsters are also there like Saim Ayub (PAK), Rachin Ravindra (NZ), Nangyal Kharoti (AFG), Ottniel Baartman (SA), Towhid Hridoy (BAN), etc, but we have picked these five who are likely to make an impact in this WC. Let’s see if they can do it or not.
