5. Kuldeep Yadav

He didn’t have a great last year and was able to pick only six wickets in five matches at an economy of 6.46. It was the first time since his debut in 2017 that he picked less than 20 scalps in a calendar year in ODIs. Kuldeep has picked 107 wickets in 65 matches at an average of 28.34, an economy of 5.22, and a strike rate of 32.5.

4. Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Bhuvneshwar last played a T20I for India in November 2021 against New Zealand. He picked 12 wickets in 12 T20Is in 2021 at an average of 22.25, an economy of 6.59, and a strike rate of 20.2. Many expected him to not get picked in the T20I squad as well but surprisingly, the selectors kept faith in him.

3. Avesh Khan

Avesh Khan, the 25-year-old fast bowler from Madhya Pradesh, has also been named in both the ODI and T20I squad. Avesh was also picked in India’s T20I squad last year against New Zealand. It is the maiden call for Avesh in the ODI team. He is known for his pace and also the way he has nailed his yorkers in the final overs of the innings during the IPL.

2. Deepak Hooda

In domestic cricket, Hooda represents his home state Baroda. Hooda has played 46 first-class matches and scored 2908 runs at an average of 42.76. In 74 List A games, he has made 2257 runs at an average of 38.25. In the domestic circuit, Hooda is known for his attacking batting skills and economical bowling. He would be a perfect fit in India’s struggling middle-order.

1. Ravi Bishnoi

In 17 List A games, Bishnoi has picked 24 wickets at an average of 36.25, an economy of 5.48, and a strike rate of 39.6. He has been picked by Lucknow Super Giants for INR four crores for the upcoming edition of the IPL along with KL Rahul and Marcus Stoinis. Bishnoi will be keen on making an impact for India if he gets a chance to prove his mettle.
