Indian cricket has never been devoid of talent and keeps on churning out one gem after another time after time. In the past, India had Kapil Dev who was then one of the best all-rounders in the world of cricket and in Sunil Gavaskar, India had one of the best batsmen that the cricket has to offer.

Despite not being a dominating team, India produced a famous quartet known as 'Fab 4' comprising of Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, and VVS Laxman apart from other great cricketers like MS Dhoni, Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan, and Virender Sehwag among others.

Now, this current lot of players now have taken Indian cricket to new heights which were only dreamt before. India has won a Test Series down under for the first time ever mainly due to the contribution of present-day star players like Virat Kohli, Cheteshwar Pujara, Jasprit Bumrah,Mohammed Shami among many others.

As time passes by, Indian cricket keeps churning out players who have the capability to replace the old stars. In this regard, we will see the current crop of youngsters who have the potential to be superstars of Indian cricket.

Kamlesh Nagarkoti was part of India's ICC Under-19 World Cup winning squad 2018 where he emerged as one breakout star of the tournament along with Shubhman Gill and Prithvi Shaw. In the 2018 ICC Under-19 World Cup, he had taken nine wickets from 6 games often clocking more than 140 Kmph.

His pace and accuracy impressed each and everyone across the cricketing fraternity. He was set to play IPL 2018 but an unfortunate injury forced him to be out of the entire tournament where he was picked by the Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2018 IPL auctions.

Kamlesh Nagarkoti doesn't have much experience in the domestic circuit so far having played only 8 List A games but is surely one for the future. With the emergence of pacers like him and a sudden burst of fast bowlers in the country, Indian bowling attack is in safe hands.
