1. Rinku Singh: The rising India star is currently one of the best finishers in the format.

2. Afghanistan’s star all-rounder Azmatullah Omarzai has been shining for his national team for quite some time now. In last year’s ODI World Cup, Azmatullah picked seven wickets in nine matches and saved a lot of runs in the powerplay overs. With the bat, he scored 353 runs, laced up with 3 fifty-plus scores.

3. England’s wicket-keeper batter Phil Salt has been in remarkable form in the last year or so, across T20 leagues in cricket. Last year, the right-handed batter scored 394 runs in 8 matches with two tons.

4. New Zealand’s Ben Sears has been in good form in T20Is in 2024. The pacer picked 7 wickets in 4 matches at bowling average of 17.29, delivering for the BlackCaps against teams like Australia and Pakistan.

5. Premier South African pacer Gerald Coetzee made a big impact with his ability to take wickets in middle overs during last year’s ODI World Cup. The talented pacer has troubled the best batters with his pace and seam. He becomes more lethal on good wickets that helps pacers. Coetzee will be a key bowler for South Africa in the T20 World Cup 2024.
