MS Dhoni
1/5

MS Dhoni : 'Captain Cool' won the title for India in 2013, but opted to step down as the captain six months before the tournament, giving ample enough time to his successor Kohli. But as a player he sure has lot more to give.

Jasprit Bumrah
2/5

Jasprit Bumrah : He is one of the rarest talents in world cricket currently. The 23-year-old will be India's stock bowler as Kohli & Co defend the title in England. It will be his first full ODI tournament. Stakes are never this high for him.

Shikhar Dhawan
3/5

Shikhar Dhawan : The Delhi batsman averaged over 90 in the last edition of the tournament when India won the tournament. He has been called back in the team purely considering this fact. And his recent IPL form allows fans to dream big.

Ravindra Jadeja
4/5

Ravindra Jadeja : The 28-year-old all-rounder has established himself as one of the most important cogs in the Indian cricket team. He was in fact the leading wicket-taker in the last edition of the tournament, which India won.

Virat Kohli
5/5

Virat Kohli : Indian captain is hungrier than ever before, and specially after the IPL flop show, he will be eager to prove a point or two in England, where he has a bad record. Yes, he is defending the title.
