Players to Look Out For
Although there are many amazing cricket players within the industry, we’ve chosen a few that truly stand out. In this section, we take a look at the different cricket players you and the teams playing should be looking at.
First, we’d like to take a look at Marnus Labuschagne. Labuschagne is best known for his ability to remain at the crease for long periods; however, those aren’t his only strong points.
Labuschagne is a batter, and at the tender age of 27, he’s already made a name for himself. Labuschagne had already made history when he became the first-ever concussion substitute, among many others. He is currently said to be the world’s best batter.
Second, we take a look at Jasprit Bumrah, who plays the role of a bowler. It’s important to note that Bumrah was mentioned in the Wisden Amlanack 2022 edition as part of the top five cricketers of the year. He is also ranked as the third-best Indian bowler in the ICC Test Bowling Ranking and also holds the sixth ranking in the ODI rankings.
Third, we’d take a look at Babar Azam, who is a batter and made an amazing impression in 20221. Azam is the reigning ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Year and has broken many records and is still yet to break many. Azam has also recently become the fastest player after reaching a staggering 2 500 T20I runs.
