Ex-Captain of the indian cricket team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper) who is well known for his helicopter shot and Bum-Bum Bumrah i.e Jasprit Bumrah (bowler), Mohammed Shammi( Bowler). Shammi and Bumrah are proved to be gems for the team right now and are fantastic bowlers.

Pandya played an important role in taking wickets. Kedar Jadhav and Mayank Aggarwal are wonderful batsmen too.
