The India vs England T20I series kick starts on 26th Jan at the Green Park, Kanpur.
Here are five young players to watch out for:
Tymal Mills is a T20 specialist, playing only the shortest format of the game. His lethal bouncers and corky yorkers at a speed of 150 KPH makes him one of the most dangerous fast bowler in the series. His recent stints in Bangladesh, New Zealand and Australia has earned him a name in T20 cricket. His most lethal weapon is his awfully slower ball which leaves the batsmen bamboozled
Mandeep Singh has earned a lot of fame due to his flamboyant batting style which he showcased in the IPL. In 59 IPL matches, he has a strike rate of over 124. To go with this he also has a tremendous Ranji Trophy record. He is expected to make it to the final XI at Kanpur opening beside KL Rahul.
This 20-year old left-handed batsmen has an IPL strike rate of 130 in 10 innings. With an array of swashbuckling shots, he is the perfect man to put the opposition under pressure. Rishabh became a household name after he smashed a record-breaking fifty in just 18 balls at the 2016 Under-19 WC. It’s still not clear if he will make it to the first XI or not but it would be interesting to see him open alongside Rahul.
This 26 year old Leg Break bowler has made his mark in the Indian domestic circuit. He has had a great success in the IPL. Batsmen find it difficult to hit through his leg-breaks. It is probably a break-through series for this young spinner. He would learn a lot under the guidance of the experienced Amit Mishra.
