It has been a memorable decade for the cricketing fraternity as they witnessed players like Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, and Ravichandran Ashwin flourish at the international level. At the dawn of this decade, they were all considered possible future stars of the game. Thereafter, they carved out a glittering career with their hard work and determination. Finally with their unparalleled success in the last 10 years now they have become modern greats of the gentlemen’s game.

Similarly, now the fans are eagerly waiting for the next generation superstars. Currently, there are a bunch of young cricketers who have shown early signs of greatness. Among them, certain individuals have the potential to inscribe their names in the history books. In the process, these budding talents might also end up as cricketing icons of the next decade.

Here is the list of 5 young cricketers who might rule the next decade :

1. Jofra Archer

For the most part of this decade, the England team lacked a genuine pace bowler. Even with the likes of James Anderson and Stuart Broad in their ranks their bowling unit looked one-dimensional. Apart from the seaming surfaces of England, the team struggled to surprise the opposition with their bowling ammunition but now things have changed for the better.

With the addition of Jofra Archer, the Three Lions have found their voices again. The Barbadian has already awed the cricketing fraternity with his ability to generate pace and bounce with the simplest of bowling actions. Along with his raw pace, his consistency and composure make him a deadly weapon across formats.

He has taken close to 50 international wickets in his debut year which is no mean feat. Be it his white-ball heroics in 2019 World Cup or the red-ball theatrics in the 2019 Ashes Archer looks a complete package for the Brits. In the coming times, the fans are in for a treat as Jofra will be hunting the opposition batsmen with his 150 kmph thunderbolts.
