Indian cricket has been one of the best organisations in the cricketing circuit. In a country composed of a massive population, one has to be tough mentally and physically to secure a spot in the team. The past decade was dominated by Virat Kohli, who had a tremendous transformation from a chubby youngster to the best in the game. Well, we have seen many more superstars becoming the best in their respective roles.

India’s squad has become stronger mainly because of the IPL. The domestic circuit provides a base through which one attracts the attention of the talent scouts of various franchises. Better performance in domestic cricket ensures that the youngster gets an IPL contract. Later on, stellar performances in the IPL ensure that he gets selected in the national squad. 

India’s Test squad had witnessed an epic moment when an inexperienced bowling lineup managed to defeat the Aussies in their backyard. With Rahul Dravid nurturing the U19 boys, India’s future looks secure. Many names have the potential to make it to the national squad.

In the article, we present to you the five Indian cricketers who can dominate the world in the next 10 years:

Avesh Khan was a part of the Indian U19 squad during the 2016 ICC U19 World Cup. He is a fast bowler who can generate raw pace and bowl mean bouncers. During the 2017 season, he made his debut in the IPL for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. He played only a single game and picked one wicket. Because of an already packed bowling lineup, he was released and the Delhi Capitals bought him as a backup Indian pacer. 

But during the first half of the IPL 2021, Khan has impressed everyone. With 14 wickets in 8 games to his name, he has managed to provide breakthroughs to his team. Because of him, Delhi was able to play a specialist overseas batsman, and hence, their batting lineup became stronger. Well, a bowler like him is an asset for any team.

Imagine Khan bowling in tandem with Bumrah under favorable conditions. The opposition batsmen will have to struggle for every run. During his U19 days, Khan had the best bowling figure of 4/4. Well, playing under the guidance of Ricky Ponting will surely make him a more mature cricketer over the years.
