Last but not the least, the present UP captain Akshdeep Nath merits special attention. Akshdeep made waves in the junior circuit when he was appointed the vice-captain of the Indian team that won the U-19 World Cup in 2012, under Unmukt Chand's leadership. 

Akshdeep was part of the Gujarat Lions camp in his debut IPL season. Last year he was picked by King XI Punjab but didn't get enough opportunities. 

This year, in recognition of his abundant talent, RCB have bought him for a whopping 3.6 crore.

He had a decent run in the 2018 Ranji season where he amassed 727 runs in 13 innings out of 10 matches at an average of 55.96, with a best score of 194. 

He is a part-time bowler too, and can also keep wickets if needed.
