7. Kagiso Rabada (South Africa) – 43 wickets
The Johannesburg-born pacer; Kagiso Rabada shot to fame when he turned the protagonist of Proteas win in 2014 U-19 World Cup. And in very little time, he leapfrogged to the national set-up. In fact, now he is South Africa’s leading pacer in all the formats. That’s called some serious transformation and a fairy-tale rise. This year, Rabada went to the next-level and starred in South Africa’s famous wins at Centurion (13 wickets) and Perth (7 wickets).
Tipped for greatness, the 21 years old is improving in leaps and bounds. He pocketed 43 wickets in 15 innings, this year. The only point of concern is that he is over bowled and that can hamper him in the long-run.
