#5 Hardik Pandya
The Baroda-born cricketer, Hardik Pandya, who is celebrating his 25th birthday today is one of the top all-round appearances in the Indian team currently. He has been quite regular in all the three formats due to his ability to bowl at a good pace and scoring runs down the order.
Apart from his spellbinding bowling and batting, Pandya is a terrific fielder as well, which adds to his importance as a player in the team. He made his international debut in January 2016 after some reputable performances in IPL.

One of his huge fan attracting moments came during Champions Trophy finals against Pakistan last year. India though lost that match with a big margin but Pandya emerged as star with the bat as he scored a fiery 43-ball 76 runs.
He often takes to Twitter and has made a huge fan base. His skillful stunts inside the ground undoubtedly make him one of the most loved current Indian cricketers
