U19 World Cup 2018: Five players to watch out for
The ICC U19 Cricket World Cup is hardly a week away and will certainly have a large number of cricket fans glued to their television sets through its length. This tournament has produced the likes of Virat Kohli, Umar Akmal, Kane Williamson, and several other international superstars. As the cricketing fraternity across the globe awaits the rise of the next star, we take a look at five players who can possibly make it big this time around.
#1 Jason Sangha (Australia)
The skipper of the Australia side for the upcoming U19 World Cup, Jason Sangha, is certainly no stranger to playing at the highest level cricket. When Joe Root’s England came visited Australia in November, Sangha smashed an impressive 133 at Townsville in Adelaide.
This century came against a world-class bowling attack comprising of Stuart Broad, Chris Woakes, and Mason Crane.
The significance of this century was the fact that he became the second youngest player to smash a first-class ton, second to none other than the great Sachin Tendulkar.
He has also impressed in the two matches he has played for New South Wales in so far.
