In 2015, we came across many young players who burst on to the international scene with fire in their belly. There were some cricketers as well who had been part of international cricket for some time but rediscovered themselves to perform to their potential. Now, we are into the first week of the 2016. This year also promises a cricketing extravaganza and edge of the seat thrillers. It will also be a year when the youngsters who earned a name for themselves in 2015 would like to stamp their authority at the top-level. For some, the year would present a wonderful opportunity to continue their dream run or revive their form.
The list was extremely tough to compile keeping in mind the quality of players who are prevalent at the moment. But we have made strenuous efforts to include quality players from as many teams as possible.
Cricmatez presents the list of Top 10 cricketers to Watch Out for in 2016:
10. Josh Hazlewood (Australia)
The ICC Emerging Player of the Year 2015, Josh Hazlewood proved his significance with the ball last year. The Aussie quick who is perceived as the apparent heir of Glenn McGrath did live up to the hype and expectations as well with his dazzling performances. Hazlewood’s mantra is to keep bowling in the corridor of uncertainty. The Aussie yongster plays with the patience and mind of the batsmen. His invariable accuracy and immaculate line and lengths make him an extremely tough bowler to battle against. In 2015, the 24-year-old picked up 60 wickets for the Baggy greens across all the formats of the game and would be a sure shot player to watch out for this year.
