He is now the eighth man with a record of a double century in the ODI. All this makes him the best cricketer under 25 in the ODI World Cup 2023 India.

Next on the list is Shaheen Khan, whom Pakistan should certainly address as the best cricketer under 25 in the ODI World Cup 2023.
This 23-year-old left arm quickly gives the audience an impression of having been on the field all his life.
His speed and movement have contributed to 250 wickets, with 86 of them achieved in just 44 ODIs.
Harry Brook from England, at just 24, is another notable cricketer under 25 in the ODI World Cup 2023.
Known for his swashbuckling batting style, he has contributed to 1181 runs in just 12 tests.
Sadly, the player was left out of England’s initial World Cup, leaving fans disappointed and stunned in the end.
However, he is now back in the recent ODI, and we can’t wait to see more of this cricketer who is known to possess a touch of genius.
At number four, we have Marco Johnson, the left-armer from South Africa, who in just a few years after his debut, has grown to become a favorite of the Proteas.
At six feet eight inches, the player is known to give the ball a kind of bounce that has contributed to Australia’s many victories.
He is good with the bat too, and he has given the team several sixes, making a cricketer under 25 in the ODO World Cup 2023 worth mentioning here.
And then, last on the list, we have Dunith Wellalage, the Sri Lankan player who had 14 out of the 16 ODIs the last time.
Thanks to his many runs, the Sri Lankan team lost only twice to India, unlike what happened in the Asia Cup Final.
The Sri Lankan team ought to be grateful to him for this, shouldn’t it?
And with that, we come to the end of this list of some of the best cricketers under the age of 25 who have made some of the most noteworthy contributions in this field.
