Anil Kumble names two future ‘superstars’ of cricket: ‘It’s wonderful to see him grow’


Former Indian captain Anil Kumble has heaped praise on Arshdeep Singh and Ishan Kishan, calling them the future superstars of Indian cricket. Kumble said it’s wonderful to see Arshdeep growing as a player after working closely with him in the IPL. Kumble was the head coach of Punjab Kings and worked with Arshdeep at the IPL franchise from 2019-2022. As for Ishan Kishan, Kumble said he’s someone who has made wonderful use of the opportunities he has, citing his recent double century in ODIs.

“Having worked closely with someone like Arshdeep it’s wonderful to see him grow into what he has done for India. I would consider Arshdeep to be the next superstar bowler to come through. From a schlager perspective, Ishan Kishan is someone who has made wonderful use of the opportunities he has. He’s got a double hundred and he’s someone who I think will be a superstar,” Kumble said during a discussion on JioCinema.

The career of Ishan Kishan and Arshdeep Singh

Ishan Kishan Last year he cracked the first double hundred of his one-day international career in a game against Bangladesh. Ishan hit 210 carries from 131 balls, including 24 limits and 10 sixes. His double hundred was the fastest of any player in the history of the format. He accomplished the feat in just 126 balls, becoming the youngest player to hit an ODI double hundred. However, his record has since been broken by Shubman Gill, who smashed a double century of his own. Ishan will next be seen in action during the upcoming Test series against Australia where he has been included in the squad in place of an injured Rishabh Pant.

He played a vital role for Team India in the Marquee ICC event, picking 10 wickets in six games. Arshdeep was one of the Indian team’s best players in the tournament. Arshdeep has played 26 T20I matches for his country, picking 41 wickets with an average of 17.78 and an economy rate of 8.39.
