As the curtains fall on 2023, Indian cricket has witnessed a bagful of young stars who illuminated the cricketing sky with their extraordinary performances.

From fearless batting to incredible bowling, these rising stars have left a remarkable mark on the cricketing world.

Let’s take a look at 7 of the emerging stars:

Shubman Gill

No rising star list is complete without this 24-year-old opener. He cemented his place in the ODI team and became the first batter to reach 2,000 international runs this year. 

He played 29 ODIs this year to score 1,584 with 5 centuries and 9 half-centuries. In 17 IPL matches, he scored 890 runs with an average of 59.33 and a strike rate of 157.80.

Yashasvi Jaiswal

This 21-year-old left-hander's fearless batting has shaken the cricketing world. 

In 14 IPL matches, he scored 625 runs with an average of 48.08 and a strike rate of 163.61. 

He also has an IPL century under his belt this year.

Tilak Varma

This 21-year-old middle-order maestro already boasts an IPL average of 42.88 this year with a strike rate of 164.11. 

His maturity and ability to handle pressure will make him a future star.

Rinku Singh

Explosive power in a compact package, this 26-year-old has been a force to reckon with. 

His six-hitting prowess makes him a white-ball specialist worth watching. 

In his stint with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) this year, he turned out to be a match-winner.

His ability to finish games with aggressive strokes solidified his reputation as a force in limited-overs cricket.

Tushar Deshpande

This 28-year-old spinner proved that a gentle demeanour can hide a wicket-taking machine. 

He is currently among the top five in the IPL and his ability to bowl with both new ball and death overs makes him a versatile weapon.

Mukesh Kumar

In the bowling department, 25-year-old left-arm seamer Mukesh Kumar showcased consistency and skill.

A regular performer in domestic cricket, Kumar's swing bowling and knack for picking up crucial wickets make him a potential successor to the veteran swing bowlers. 

His exploits against Australia in the T20I series garnered attention, hinting at a bright future for the young seamer.

Jitesh Sharma

Wicketkeeper-batsman Jitesh Sharma, 27, impressed everyone with his finishing skills and clean hitting.

His striking performance in the last four overs is particularly noteworthy, showcasing his ability to accelerate when needed. 

As a reliable wicketkeeper-batsman, Sharma has earned his spot as a player to keep a close eye on in the coming years.
