Indian cricket has a bright future because of the next generation of talented bowlers. In both domestic and international cricket, they are causing waves. They have already demonstrated their prowess as young bowlers that they have what it takes to be elite players. India's recent successes have been greatly aided by their revival as a fast-bowling assault, whether they be away wins in limited-overs or Test cricket.

It is now becoming a reality for a nation that scarcely had a so-called pace attack to rule world cricket. We can claim that they are on the right route, even though there is still a long way to go. However, with increasing number of fixtures throughout the cricketing schedule, the workload on senior pacers like Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami is reaching its satiety, and thus, it is important for the Indian management to keep the bench strength ready when the need be.

Adding to the same, here's a list of five pacers whom India should groom for the future to lead the team's pace attack when the senior pros aren't available:

5. Avesh Khan

Avesh Khan, a young, gifted fast bowler from India, caused a stir at the Under-19 World Cup in 2016. He made lots of variations with raw speed. At the age of 21, Avesh sought the national team's net bowler. He made his international debut with a T20I fixture against a formidable Windies side in 2022, although it wasn't a memorable one.

Later, however, the Indore-born speedster had a fantastic showing in 2023 season of the Indian Premier League, while representing Lucknow Supergiants (LSG). The Madhya Pradesh cricketer has already represented the Men in Blue in white-ball formats, however, the kind of bowler he is, he can really make a mark for himself in red-ball cricket, given he gets the right guidance.

Avesh's recent first-class and other domestic records speak volumes of the way he has improved himself to turn the tables for himself. Playing for Madhya Pradesh and India A, the right-arm pacer is definitely on the radars of the selection committee.
