No doubt Virat Kohli is currently the poster boy of Indian cricket. But we need to see someone else to take it over in few coming months. He has been the same for quite a long time. But we need to see someone very young to take over the baton from him at the earliest possible.
Here are some of the possible future superstars of the Indian Cricket Team after Virat Kohli.
Shubman Gill has the ability in him to take over as the next after Virat. He is calm, composed and well matured beyond his age on the field. He is well sound in his batting techniques and tries his best to play as simple as possible. He just needs some good innings and a perfect time to make his mark in world cricket. A few good knocks in the IPL as well as in the domestic circuit made him an excellent candidate for the Indian team.
No doubt this left handed wicket keeper batsman has the potential as well as talent to be the next star of the Indian cricket team. His ability to make out quick runs and his fearless approach is his strength on the field. Technically very sound and the confidence of backing his shots is his strength on the field. His inclusion in the Test squad for the England Tour ahead of many other experienced choices also shows the selectors trust on him. He just has to make out the most provided to him and he is done.
The captain of the U19 World Cup winning team Team Prithvi Shaw has forced the world to notice him. He has the skill of finding out easy gaps as well as hitting those long out of the park shots even under pressure. This makes him a spearhead in the team for which he plays. His fireworks in a match against the KKR in the 2018 IPL version made him a star thereafter. So would like to see the same fireworks for him but this time as the Men in Blue.
He came into the limelight after the U19 Cooch Behar Trophy in 2008-09 and the U19 World Cup 2010 where he was the highest run-getter for the team. But he has been moving in ups and down since then. But his recent form has made the selectors think of him every time they choose a squad. He has been knocking the teams since long but yet to receive his maiden call-up. His recent form in the domestic circuit has created every chance of him getting his call up very soon. All of us are waiting to see a new star bloom as he waits to wear his blue jersey.
