India has always been a country which has appreciated talented in a way that no other country does. Anyone who performs well in the IPL or at the national level can become a superstar. India over the years has produced many players who have been given such tags like the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Sourav Ganguly, Yuvraj, Dhoni, Virat, and the list can just go on like.
In India, players who perform well are treated like gods and there are many many mad fans for these players. Every time a great player retires, we think about who would carry forward the legacy and every time, the Indian system throws an amazing talent at us.
Today we take a look at those five players who could potentially be the next generation of superstars.
#5 Ishan Kishan
Ishan Kishan comes from the state which has produced one of the greatest Indian players to captain the Indian team. He had led the Indian U-19 team in the 2016 World Cup played in Dhaka. India ended up as the runners up of the tournament. Ishan Kishan had been scoring good runs at the domestic level for Jharkhand. He was the top scorer of Jharkhand in the 2017 Ranji season.
Last year he played for Mumbai Indians and batted at the top of the order. Everyone was impressed by his ability to hit the ball so cleanly. He played 14 matches for the Mumbai Indians and scored 275 runs with an impressive strike rate of 149.45. He is just 20 years of age now and has a long career ahead of him. Till now he has shown a lot of promise and can potentially be in the race of wicketkeepers of the Indian team once MS Dhoni calls the day.
