ICC T20 World Cup 2022: 3 Youngsters Who Will Set The Tournament On Fire

Last updated:

The ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is just around the corner and the fans are buzzing considering the kind of star attraction there will be at the mega-event that will run from October 16 to November 13 in Australia.

Along with the veteran and experienced players of the game, there will also be a few youngsters who have already done well at the international level and will look to set the stage on fire when they turn up for their respective countries in the all-important T20 tournament.

Here are 3 youngsters you should not miss watching at the ICC T20 World Cup 2022:

Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh

23-year-old Arshdeep Singh is only 13 T20Is old going into the ICC T20 World Cup 2022. However, not only he’s a guaranteed starter in India’s best XI at the tournament, but also he will have the extra responsibility on his shoulders of death bowling in the absence of India’s spearhead fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who’s been ruled out of the tournament because of a back injury.

Even if Bumrah was available, Arshdeep might have been preferred to bowl the slog overs over Harshal and Bhuvneshwar. This is the kind of reputation the left-arm seamer has created this year. Economy-wise, he was the second-best death overs bowler in the IPL, only after Bumrah. In T20Is in 2022, Arshdeep Singh’s death overs economy has been a laudable 7.93 while the rest of the Indian pacers barring Bumrah have gone at more than 10 per over.

Tristan Stubbs

Tristan Stubbs was largely an unknown entity until the Mumbai Indians roped him in as a replacement player this year. South Africa showed sudden interest in him – after all, MI had signed him – and in his first international innings, the right-hander smashed 72 runs off 28 balls against England to announce his arrival.

After 6 T20I innings, Stubbs has a strike rate of 191 and overall 159 in 34 T20 knocks. One of the most exciting young batting talents in the world, 22-year-old Tristan Stubbs is set to don the role of a finisher for South Africa at the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

Naseem Shah

19-year-old Naseem Shah recently rocked the Asia Cup with his extra pace and zip snapping up 7 wickets in his debut T20I tournament, including 3 vs India in 2 outings. 

In the absence of the injured Shaheen Afridi, Naseem led the Pakistani bowling attack impressively and sealed his spot for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022..

Shah is fast, quick and has both inswingers and outswingers in his arsenal. An opening bowling duo of Shaheen and Naseem has already got the Pakistani fans excited.
