As the main phase of the ICC World T20 2016 gets ready to rock and roll from March 15, Tuesday with the match between India and New Zealand, there is plenty to look forward to. While the big name's of the cricketing world are geared up to rule the charts once again, one should not forget about the youngsters who can make a serious impact in the ICC World T20 2016.
Here is a look at some of the players, under the age of 25, who can make a difference for their national side in this T20 World Cup:
Jasprit Bumrah -- India (22 years): The Mumbai Indians youngster has been a revelation for India since making his debut in Australia earlier this year. Bumrah has taken away MS Dhoni's worries over India's death bowling. The Gujarat speedster's prowess in the death overs and his ability to bowl yorkers with consummate ease makes him one of the best youngsters in business in the shortest format of the game. He will be one of the lethal weapons that Dhoni has in his ranks.
Mohammad Amir -- Pakistan (23 years): The left-arm seamer completed his five-year ban from cricket last September and ever since his return, Amir has bowled exceedingly well. His spell against India in the Asia Cup T20 2016 in February, will go down as one of the best spells bowled in the history of T20 cricket. Amir can make the ball talk even in these sub-continental conditions, as he showed against India in his opening spell in the Asia Cup. Amir's presence in the Pakistan squad makes them a formidable team.
Sabbir Rahman -- Bangladesh (24 years): This Bangladesh all-rounder has evolved into a brillianrt cricketer over the last couple of years. He was adjudged the player of the series in the Asia Cup T20 2016, ahead of Virat Kohli, and that proves how good he was in the tournament. He is a seasoned campaigner in this format of the game. He can hit the ball a long way as well as bowl those off-spinners when the captain asks him to. He also has the knack of picking up wickets. A special player with special talents, watch out for Sabbir.
Mitchell Marsh -- Australia (24 years): The Australian all-rounder has cemented his place in the squad in all three formats of the international game. That shows how good he has been, both with the bat and ball. Marsh is an extremely talented cricketer and is one of the best young all-rounders around the world. At times, one may feel that he is a little underrated as he hardly gets to show his skills with the willow, owing to Australia's brilliant batting lineup. But, with the ball he has the ability to provide Steve Smith those crucial breakthroughs. If required, he can tonk the ball quite a distance and cause havoc.
Quinton de Kock -- South Africa (23 years): South Africa's solution to their opening woes. This left-handed wicket-keeper batsman can rip apart any bowling attack in the first six overs of the game, which is very important in T20 cricket. He helps his middle-order batsmen by setting a platform, from where they can launch an onslaught on the bowlers and post seriously-good totals. He is equally good behind the stumps as well, and in the process allowing AB De Villiers to just concentrate on his batting.
