8. Dinesh Karthik – 8.5/10

9. Hardik Pandya – 9.5/10
This lad is in incredible form. The all-rounder Hardik Pandya is whacking those balls to perfection, which would certainly help the team. Besides that, his bowling has improved a lot and can be the difference between the win and a loss.
10. Ravindra Jadeja – 8/10
The left-handed all-rounder has been incredible for the team over the years. He is a three-dimension player for the team, as there are very few players, who can come close to his fielding standards. His spin could be vital to bring balance to the side.
11. Yuzvendra Chahal – 8.5/10
Chahal has always been brilliant for the team. He got the knack of picking wickets at the crucial junctures for the team. Chahal’s ability to pick wickets in the middle overs will make a massive impact on the team.
12. Kuldeep Yadav – 8.5/10

14. Bhuvneshwar Kumar – 7/10
Bhuvneshwar Kumar wasn’t at his best for SRH this season. Considered to be one of the best exponents of the new ball, Kumar couldn’t provide early breakthroughs for Hyderabad on a regular basis. However, he could be the vital cog in the England conditions and his batting will be an extra benefit.
15. Mohammed Shami – 9/10
This man had improved like none other in the Indian team. He is delivering those much-needed overs for the team and often giving breakthroughs for the team. The right-0handed fast bowler is a must for Virat Kohli in the lineup to get the better off the opposition.
