This 21-year-old speedster definitely has what it takes to become one of the best in the world. With 184 wickets across formats in 88 matches, he is climbing the ladder fast. With his left-arm action and the classic left-arm in-swinging deliveries, and that too, over a 140ks, he rips through the opposition batting line-up. He still needs a long way to go but considering his young age, he has a very bright future ahead.

Devon Conway- New Zealand

Although he is quite famous in world cricket, he has a very long way to go. Currently, he is sidelined due to an injury but no one doubts his ability to seam the bowl and seam it fast, like really fast. In 13 matches he has 42 wickets under his belt but certainly, he will achieve a lot more in the coming years. Jofra has already played a very important role in England’s 2019 world cup winning campaign so one can certainly say he is a special talent and would rule world cricket with his speed.

Some special mentions who could not get a place in our top 5 because of their small sample size are – Shubhman Gill, Mohammad Siraj, Cameroon Green, Will Young, Marco Jansen, Keegan Petersen. All the players mentioned including the special mentioned still have a long way to go but with the kind of talent that they have shown, and if they continue to improve in their game, they can surely be named as one of the greats of the game.
