There is no bigger stage than the World Cup for any player to showcase their talent. It is a dream of every cricketer to feature in this tournament that comes once every four years. However, there are only selected fortunate ones who actually manage to realise this desire and represent their nation is this biggest of cricketing events. While many cricketers take their entire lifetime to feature in this event, some of the players have been lucky enough to get there at a very young age.

Many youngsters are set to make their debut in this edition of the tournament. Although they are inexperienced, most of them have been excellent in whatever we have seen of them thus far. They’d all be eager to make their mark in the tournament and cement their spots for a long time. The tournament will also witness three impressive teenagers take part in it which adds up to the excitement.

Here is the youngest player team-wise in this World Cup:

Mujeeb Ur Rahman is the youngest player who will be featuring in this edition of the tournament. Making his debut in the World Cup at such a young age, there will be a lot of nerves for the 18-year-old. Having made his mark in various T20 leagues around the league, Mujeeb has also established himself as an important member in the Afghanistan side.

However, the challenge will be much tougher for him this time around in the English conditions. Also, there is a lot of video footage available now and the batsmen have been picking him well of late. Thus, he needs to bring about new variations to his bowling as a surprise element to succeed. Having played in the T20 Blast is an added advantage for him.

DOB – 28/03/2001 | Age – 18
