5. Pravin Tambe
Pravin Tambe’s journey from being handpicked by chance by the great Rahul Dravid to becoming one of the stars of the Champions League T20 in 2013 has been nothing short of a fairytale. Of course at 44, an Indian team selection seems unlikely at best but for Tambe to win the Mumbai cap for the Ranji Trophy after his sizzling performances in the IPL is a massive feat. Although the leg spinner will almost certainly never play for India, his journey is one to be proud of.
