Dhruv Jurel

This wicket-keeper batsman debuted in the third Test in Rajkot on February 15th, after receiving his cap number 311 experienced Dinesh Karthik.

Sarfaraz Khan

The middle order just got a boost with Sarfaraz Khan! This young batsman who got his cap number 312 from Anil Kumble also debuted in Rajkot, and he made a historic splash! He scored fifties in BOTH innings (62 and 68 runs) – an amazing feat for any player, especially a debutant! Cricket fans are buzzing about his potential. In the first innings, he scored 62 runs off 66 balls, featuring nine fours and a six and in the second innings, he remained unbeaten with a score of 68 off 72 balls, including six fours and three sixes.

Akash Deep

This promising pacer Akash Deep got handed Test cap number 313 by the Indian coach Rahul Dravid in the fourth Test when he debuted in Ahmedabad on February 23rd. Deep wasted no time making an impact, taking the first three England wickets! His raw pace and swing are impressive, and he’s already getting praise from Indian cricket legends. His debut performance is earning praise, and he seems poised to contribute significantly to Indian fast bowling.

Devdutt Padikkal

Then we have Devdutt Padikkal, an aggressive left-handed batsman who got honored with cap number 314 314 from spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in the fifth and final Test at Dharamsala. He replaced the injured Rajat Patidar and has a chance to shine on the biggest stage!
