With the 2023 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) scheduled to begin soon, fans are buzzing with excitement as one of the most popular T20 leagues in world cricket is right around the corner. Just like every season, the 16th edition of the competition will once again be one of the biggest platforms for the next generation of cricketers to showcase their talent.
Over the years, the IPL has given rise to many youngsters who have gone on to become match winners for their countries. Hardik Pandya, Shubman Gill, Jasprit Bumrah, and many more stars were at first just raw talents who made it big in the IPL.
JioCinema recently organized a panel that consisted of some big names like Chris Gayle, Anil Kumble, Parthiv Patel, Robin Uthappa, Scott Styris, and Aakash Chopra. The former players came forward to discuss who could be the potential emerging star of this year’s IPL.
"Having worked closely with someone like Arshdeep Singh, it's wonderful to see him grow into what he has done for India. I would love to see Arshdeep as the next superstar bowler coming through, and from the batting perspective, Ishan Kishan is wonderful with the opportunities he has got, so he is someone whom I think can be a superstar," Anil Kumble said in the podcast.

Among others, former Indian cricketer Parthiv Patel opined that Tilak Varma could be a potential future star for the Indian team going forward. He also picked Umran Malik as one of the players who could make a big impact with the national team.
"Umran Malik. Someone who is quick and bowling well and he has already played for India but yeah I think he can be a superstar. Batting wise, having seen Tilak Varma in a couple of years. I had the opportunity to scout and back him and a kind of a cricketer he has become. He also has an ability to lead a side, so, I think he can be a future leader," Parthiv Patel said.
