The recent end of the Emerging Asia Cup did not only shock Asia but also the world. Thrilling matches, nail-biting overs, and an overflow of emotions: it all came to an end when Pakistan A defeated India A in the final. While the efforts of all players were remarkable, some need a little more attention than others. Let’s look at the top 5 future Stars from ACC Emerging Asia Cup 2023.
The Top 5 Future Stars:
Tayyab Tahir (Pakistan)
Although older than some players and under attack from many for his age, this player should still be considered a future star. Tahir scored a highest of 108 runs, with an average of 47.50, and a strike rate of 110.47.
He regarded himself as the standard that the Pakistani batsmen should be showing after scoring 108 off 71 balls, which included 12 boundaries and 4 sixes, against India in the final. Now if this isn’t the confidence we’re looking for, I don’t know what is!
Sai Sudharsan (India)
Next up, Sai Sudharsan mesmerized everyone with his impactful strokes. This garnered much-needed appreciation from several current and former players.
The highest he amassed was a total of 104 runs, with an average of 73.33, and a decent strike rate of 99.09. He has been doing very well previously too as seen by his amazing performance in IPL 2023. Sudharsan is a must candidate for the top 5 future stars.
