Let’s have a look at three unknown teenage batsmen
Yashasvi Jaiswal- India
Yashasvi Jaiswal is only 17 years old and at the tender age, he has already taken rapid strides in the game. The southpaw was India U19s standout performer in the 2018 Asia Cup in Bangladesh and ever since, the Young Turk has come a long way.
Earlier this year, the teenager made his first-class debut and has forayed into List A cricket as well in the 2019-20 Vijay Hazare Trophy. In his first five innings of the tournament, Jaiswal notched centuries on three instances at an average in excess of 100.
Mackenzie Harvey- Australia
Back in 2017, Mackenzie Harvey gave a glimpse of his batting prowess against England in Sydney. Batting at number six, the left-hander racked up 59 runs off 48 balls with the help of four boundaries and as many hits into the stands. In the same year, he was called up in the Melbourne Renegades’ squad in the Big Bash League (BBL).
The teenager came in as the replacement of the veteran Aaron Finch. Unfortunately, he didn’t get to play a single match. But last season, he did get a chance for the same team. Though he could score 162 runs, the southpaw is being seen as a bright prospect.
Towhid Hridoy- Bangladesh
Towhid Hridoy is one of the brightest talents doing the rounds in Bangladesh cricket. The Bogra-born has only played a solitary first-class match way back in October 2017, but his white-ball exploits have been stupendous to say the least.
In 22 List A matches, Hridoy has 770 runs at an average of 45.29. The average shoots up to 53.50 in the T20 format, though he has an experience of only four games. Earlier this year, Bangladesh U19 locked horns with India U19 and hosts England U19 in a tri-nation series and Hridoy ended as the second-highest run-scorer.
