Ram Nant Kuchiba has been a staple of India’s national cricketing scene for more than 20 years, but the former captain of the India team for the past two decades will have to be very humble about his place on the international cricketing landscape.
Nath Kachibhotl is a very different player to what we know from his former team, India, with a more measured approach and the ability to take risks.
He has a more reserved manner in his public appearances, while also showing the desire to show what he can do in the dressing room.
It is a change from the more aggressive approach of the likes of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli, who have all shown an unyielding determination to take the field with the bat.
Nathan Lyon is an experienced captain who has captained India for a decade.
He was part of the 2008 World Cup squad but was not selected for the tournament, despite being selected as one of the best Test players of the tournament.
His experience is evident when you look at the numbers he has put up over the past four years.
The 23-year-old is averaging a career-best 16.21 runs per innings in the IPL.
He is also bowling more consistently than ever before.
His averages are now at an all-time high of 18.90 in the five formats.
He also has one of his most successful seasons in terms of batting averages, which stands at 36 in the seven formats.
In the two formats, Kuchil has scored five centuries, five fifties and six hundreds in the current IPL season.
This is one of just four players in the game to do so.
The rest are all from the previous year.
Nakamthavir Singh is the only player from the last five years to score a century in the Indian Premier League.
He came from the IPT and took a place in the team for a second time in the 2017-18 season.
The 20-year old is the second-highest-scoring bowler in the format, behind only Kumar Sangakkara who scored a staggering 29 in the first round.
Krishna Agarwal is one player who has had a huge impact in the history of the Indian cricketing system.
His performances in the recent IPL seasons have earned him the mantle of being the most consistent Indian batsman to emerge from the group stages of the IPPL.
He had the lowest average in the league for a season, and has only played in three IPLs in his career.
Nagraj Gollapudi is another who has made an impact in his last few years of international cricket.
The 22-year‑old is one who is one step closer to becoming the most prolific batsman in the tournament history.
He scored four centuries in the 2016-17 season, but only four in the past three seasons.
He played in two matches for the national side in the ongoing IPL campaign and is in the running for a spot in the next World Cup.
The next chapter of India cricketing history starts with the IPTL in 2019.
