#4 Aaron Hughes
The Irish international was a sensational leader for the men in yellow. He played an important role in Kerala's journey to the finals. But, they were beaten by ATK 1-0 in the finals.
Though he had injury problems, he remained to be that factor that gave the team courage. He was the coordinator of the team. Whenever Hughes went for international duties, the team struggled. He stayed away from the dirty sides of being a defender. In fact, he has never been sent off by any means.
He formed an integral part of Kerala's defence along with Hengbart and had also scored a solitary goal from a header.
