Tanmay Srivastava was the leading run-scorer in the 2008 U-19 World Cup with 262 runs in six games at an average of 52.40. Srivastava delivered a fine performance in the final as well, scoring 46 runs off 74 balls to guide India to a respectable total of 159 (which proved to be a match-winning one in the end).

He was recently named the captain of the Uttarakhand Ranji Trophy side, following the sacking of another U-19 star, Unmukt Chand.

Virat Kohli made his debut for the senior team of India in 2008 and is currently the captain of the Indian cricket team across all three formats. Kohli has more than 20,000 runs to his name at the senior level and has a penchant for breaking records with ease.

His consistency at the highest level has prompted many in the cricketing fraternity to deem him the greatest batsman of all time. From captaining the U-19 World Cup-winning team to leading the country in all forms of international cricket, it has been quite a journey for King Kohli.
