The emerging cricket talent from New Zealand has secured the eighth position on the list. Rachin, whose name is believed to be a fusion of the legendary players Dravid and Sachin, graced the World Cup stage this year and showcased his brilliance with a stunning century in his very first match. Throughout the tournament, he amassed an impressive total of 550 runs in just nine matches, making him a pillar of strength in New Zealand’s batting lineup.

Before his NBA career, Morant distinguished himself in college basketball, having played for Murray State. His talents and potential were recognized by the Memphis Grizzlies, who selected him as the second overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. 

He garnered significant media attention this year primarily due to his suspension for the initial 25 games of the NBA season. The suspension was a consequence of the circulation of two social media videos, in which he was seen brandishing a firearm.
