New Delhi: The World Cup will start with the match between New Zealand and England. Legends like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Kane Williamson are participating in this World Cup. Apart from these, there are many players who will participate in this tournament for the first time. Even before entering the World Cup, these players have made their mark in their short career. Today we will talk about those 5 players from whom there will be great expectations in this World Cup.
Shubhman Gill: The first name is India’s opening batsman Shubhman Gill. Gill is the only batsman to cross the 1000 run mark in ODIs this year. So far he has scored 1230 runs in 20 matches at an average of more than 72. He has scored 5 centuries and as many half-centuries. His strike rate has also been 105. His performance at home has been even better. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will certainly be a threat to the opposing teams but Gill also cannot be underestimated.
Dunith Vellalage: This 20-year-old left-arm spinner from Sri Lanka has played only 15 ODIs so far but Dunith has left a different mark in his short career. He recently took 5 wickets against India in a match of Asia Cup. In the same match, he played an unbeaten inning of 42 runs. He could not make Sri Lanka win but the kind of innings he played under pressure strengthened his identity as a player. This will be the world’s first World Cup and everyone’s eyes will be on them.
Harry Brook: This middle order batsman of England has suddenly got a chance to play in the World Cup. He was not included in England’s World Cup provisional squad but was selected in the World Cup team in place of Jason Roy in the final squad. Brook has scored 123 runs in 6 ODIs so far but he has the power to play big innings.
Haris Rauf: This is also the first World Cup for this fast bowler of Pakistan. He is currently counted among the fastest bowlers in the world. Haris has taken 53 wickets in 28 ODIs so far. Before the World Cup, Haris had also bowled well in the Asia Cup. He took 3 wickets in the match against India and 4 wickets against Bangladesh. Everyone’s eyes will be on this fast bowler in this World Cup.
Cameron Green: This will also be the first World Cup for this Australian all-rounder. Green has scored 379 runs in 20 ODIs and has also taken 16 wickets. Green had also scored unbeaten 50 runs against Pakistan in the warm-up match.
