Every cricketer aspires to represent his or her country at the largest stage of all, ‘The World Cup.’ However, only a few are lucky enough to accomplish their ambition. While many players spend their whole lives preparing for the main event, others arrive at a relatively young age.

In this article, we will discuss 5 of the youngest players who will participate in the upcoming tournament.

Arshdeep Singh made his national team debut after outstanding performances in the Indian Premier League. The 23-year-old claimed 28 wickets in 26 matches for the Punjab Kings over the previous two seasons at an economy of 7.98, which is impressive given he bowls the majority of his overs towards the death.

The Punjab pacer took his strong form to the international stage. He has 14 wickets at an economy rate of 7.38 in 11 outings for the Men in Blue. Arshdeep has shown his ability to bowl pinpoint yorkers at will, making him difficult to contain towards the tail end of the innings.

The addition of the left-arm pacer has given the Indian bowling attack greater diversity. Arshdeep’s poise at the end distinguishes him as a standout bowler, and the youngster’s attitude has been praised by team management. The team’s management will be hoping that the yorker-specialist does well in the next premier tournament.

Naseem Shah made his T20I debut in the just concluded Asia Cup 2022 and has been a revelation for Pakistan ever since. He was brought in to replace an injured Shaheen Afridi and has provided the Men in Green with an excellent start with the ball.

So far, the speedster has made five appearances for his team in the shortest format, taking seven wickets at an economy rate of 7.66. Naseem has shocked opposing batsmen with his quick speed and has set the tone for Pakistan with the new ball.

Australia has been a haven for pacers, and Naseem may be even more destructive in those circumstances. On the big stage, the 19-year-old has shown incredible talent and poise. In the Asia Cup game against Afghanistan, he demonstrated his batting skills by hitting two consecutive sixes to help his team win. Naseem has shown a lot of potential and is poised to become Pakistan’s next big star.

Finn Allen has become as a household name on the T20 circuit in recent years. He is renowned for his daring style of cricket and has been a destructive with the bat at the top of the order. He scored 280 runs in 11 matches for Wellington in the Super Smash 2021-22 with an amazing strike rate of 200.

The daring cricketer has also performed well for New Zealand in the limited-overs competition. Allen has played 13 games for the Blackcaps in the shortest format, scoring 334 runs with a strike rate of 169.54.

Allen has been tasked with getting his national team off to a fast start, and he has done it flawlessly. He has set the tone with the bat, and the Blackcaps will rely on him to deliver big in the global event in Australia.

Harry Brook has been one of the T20 circuit’s most consistent players. The 23-year-old has shown his value in T20 tournaments all around the globe. He made 264 runs in 10 innings in this year’s Pakistan Super League with a strike rate of 171.43.

Brook also had a fantastic T20 Blast 2022 season for Yorkshire. In 13 games, he scored 436 runs with a strike rate of 163.91. Brook has got into England’s T20 squad and will play for the Three Lions in the World Cup in 2022.

Brook has shown that he can be both an aggressor and a finisher in the middle overs. As a result, he may serve as a floater in England’s batting order and be called up in the event of a favourable matchup.

Tim David’s stock has risen dramatically in the previous several years. In the T20 circuit, he has become one of the most sought-after finishers in the world. This is clear from the fact that the most successful IPL club, Mumbai Indians, paid a whopping 8.25 crore for the Singapore-born in the 2022 IPL Auction, and he did not disappoint.

In this year’s IPL, David scored 187 runs in nine innings with a strike rate of 210.11. Prior to joining Australia, he played 14 T20Is for Singapore, totaling 558 runs with a strike rate of 158.52. The 26-year-old is a true power batter who is known for hitting massive sixes.

Aside from his finishing ability, David is extremely adept at off-spin and provides Australia with a another option with the ball. The T20 colossus might be the X-factor for Aaron Finch and company heading into the T20 World Cup.
