7.Piyush Chawla

Chawla was fast-tracked to international cricket a few days after the Under 19 World Cup

The Uttar Pradesh leg-spinner was part of the 2006 Under 19 World Cup squad, held in Sri Lanka and had a splendid competition, picking up 13 wickets in 6 matches to finish as India's highest wicket-taker.

20 days after that tournament, the youngster was handed a Test debut against England in Mohali.

Chawla did not have the greatest of debuts with the ball, picking up the lone wicket of Andrew Flintoff even as India won the game by 9 wickets.
