1. KL Rahul
KL Rahul is coming into the tournament on the back of sensational performances in the IPL 2021. He led the run-charts with 626 runs in 13 matches at an average of 62.60. KL Rahul has been one of the most consistent batsmen in the shortest format and has an outstanding record for India as well.
