Cricketers like Virat Kohli, Shakib Al Hasan, or AB de Villiers have dominated the sport since the last decade. These cricketers will not be able to maintain their place in world cricket for long since they are over the age of 30. In other words, the old must make way for the new. There are currently some promising young cricketers who have the potential to excel in international cricket in the near future. Some of them have already solidified their position in the world of cricket. Here, we have picked the potential players who could rule world cricket this decade. Young players who have the capability to rule world cricket 1) Shubman Gill India's Shubman Gill is one of the most promising young star cricketers in the world right now. In the 2018 Under-19 World Cup, he scored 372 runs at an average of 124 and was named Player of the Series. In the semifinals, he made an unbeaten 102 * against arch-rivals Pakistan. After that innings, Shubman Gill floated in praise by the former cricketers. He has already made his Test debut for India in both Test and ODI formats. Besides, Gill has been playing for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL since 2018.

Mujeeb is also the youngest player in ODI history to take five wickets. In T20 cricket, he has established himself as a reliable spinner. As a result, he is playing regular franchise leagues in different parts of the world. There is no doubt that Mujeeb-Ur-Rahman will be the future leader of the Afghan national side. 3) Akbar Ali Akbar Ali was the captain of the Bangladesh team that won the Under-19 World Cup in 2020. Thanks to his unbeaten knock, Bangladesh beat hot favorite India by 3 wickets in the final and won their first youth world cup title. Everyone praised wicket-keeper batsman Akbar Ali's leadership in that tournament. Many people believe that Bangladesh will win the World Cup for the first time under his captaincy. 4) Avishka Fernando Avishka Fernando, a young Sri Lankan top-order batsman, has already represented his country in international cricket. Fernando has the most hundreds (4) and runs (1369) for Sri Lanka in the Youth ODI format. He also has two hundreds against the West Indies in international cricket. This potential opener can lead Lankan cricket this decade. 5) Will Pucovski Will Pucovski made his Test debut against India in 2021 after a stellar domestic performance in Australian domestic cricket. He was named the best player of the tournament in the 2016-2017 season after scoring a tournament-record 650 runs in the Under-19 National Championship. At such a young age, Will Pucovski had to leave the field several times due to injury. Pucovski could be Australia's best weapon of the decade if he avoids injury.

Since then he regularly plays for the England national team in the ODI and T20 formats.

In January 2021, Gurbaz became the first Afghani cricketer to score an ODI century on debut. Gurbaz has become a popular player in T20 franchise leagues around the world, thanks to his batting ability. There is no doubt that he will become a superstar Afghani cricketer. 9) Haider Ali Haider Ali was the vice-captain of the Pakistan team in the 2020 Under-19 World Cup. This aggressive-minded batsman caught the eye of the selectors within a short period of time and made his international debut against England in September 2020.
