5. Ravi Ashwin

For Ravi Ashwin, playing white-ball cricket has been very tough. Since the 2017 Champions Trophy, the cricketer’s finger spin was sidelined but just before the 2021 T20 World Cup, a call back was announced.

4. Wriddhiman Saha

Avesh Khan is a Madhya Pradesh fast-medium bowler, who can offer good pace and also has plenty of variations under his sleeves. This 24-year-old player has been impressive in the 2021’s IPL season for Delhi Capitals.

3. Ajinkya Rahane

For the longest of times, his place in the Test squad has been in severe jeopardy merely because of his reasonable performances in the past two years. The cricketer had a very average tour of England wherein he amassed runs at a poor average of around 15.

2. Axar Patel

For Axar Patel, the year 2021 has been utterly blissful. At the start of the year, the all-rounder became a hero in India’s home Test series against England that also then paved his way into white-ball cricket.

1. Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Unfortunately, for Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the year 2021 hasn’t been fruitful. Again the cricketer during the first half of 2021 was badly injured which in many ways has raised immense question marks on his fitness.
