Former Indian cricketer Murali Vijay has picked his top four next batting superstars of India. The southpaw named quality players but what caught many by surprise was he left the young talented keeper batter, Ishan Kishan, who recently scored a double ton in ODIs, and Ruturaj Gaikwad, who has been a gun in domestic cricket.

The former Indian opener picked Shubman Gill as his first player. The batter within a short span of time has cemented his place in the Indian side in all three formats. The classy elegance of Gill has already made many tout him as the upcoming face of Indian cricket. The batter has scored runs consistently and it’s fair to say that he can carry the legacy of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli.

Prithvi Shaw was the second player picked by Vijay in his top 4 next batting superstars in India. The batter is rated as one of the best youngsters. Known for his aggressive batting, he has already made his India debut in all three formats and has been quite reasonable. He recently made a comeback in the team after nearly 2 years. Shaw is also among the consistent run-getters in the domestic circuit.
The third player that Vijay named was Rishabh Pant. The keeper batter has already sealed his place in the Indian side in three formats. The southpaw has many times bailed his side out of trouble and has single-handedly won the games for India. He’s currently out of action due to the accident he met with and is likely to be back in action after 6-7 months.
The fourth player that Murali Vijay picked is Shreyas Iyer. The batter of late has been the mainstay of the Indian batting lineup in the ODIs and Tests and also has done reasonably well in the T20Is as well. With the way Iyer is going, there’s no brainer that he will be the next big thing in Indian cricket.
