Forbes has released its ’30 Under 30′ list for 2018. Since 2012, Forbes 30 Under 30 list has recognized the brightest entrepreneurs, innovators and game-changers under the age of 30 who are transforming businesses and changing the world around them. In this year’s list, the magazine has included Indian star bowler Jasprit Bumrah, Indian cricket women’s team run-machine Harmanpreet Kaur, goalkeeper of women’s field hockey Savita Punia and Pistol shooter Heena Sidhu. The surprise entry is of course Bumrah. He has made the grade even as the current Indian team already has so many other stars who are Under 30. Interestingly, Virat Kohli was included in the list back in 2016.

Coming back to the Indian fast bowler, during 2013 IPL, a deadly bouncer from Jasprit Bumrah hit his Mumbai Indians teammate Mitchell Johnson (of Australia) on the helmet. And that is when he was noticed by Sachin Tendulkar and rest is history. Today, Bumrah along with his teammate Bhubaneshwar Kumar are world’s deadliest bowling duo.

As far as others on the list go, last July, India played a World Cup final at Lord’s. It was the 28-year-old Kaur from Moga, Punjab, who, with a blistering knock of 171 in the semifinal against Australia, evoked memories of Kapil Dev’s historic 175 not out against Zimbabwe during the 1983 World Cup. It was her spectacular performance that turned the spotlight on the women’s cricket team and they came in for huge praise from all quarters.
