You would would get opportunity to pick a player with regards to the Draft Order that would be decided later.

    Rules:-
    1) Every pick must be made within 48 hours since the last pick or the next person gets a chance for their pick.

    2) In case a double pick is there you must make your 2nd pick within 24 hours of your last pick or the next person gets chance for their pick.

    3) Since it is not easy to have enough time there is no limitation of time in giving a brief about the player. You can give it as and when you have time.

    4) You must tag the next person in the draft order after making your pick.

    Sachin Tendulkar
    The Master Blaster played in the One-Day Internationals for India for about 22 years and he scored nearly about 19,000 runs for his team. He was actually a player who was gifted with an array of strokes. In his time he decimated the best bowling attacks in the world for fun. Be it either the pace of Brett Lee or a Shoaib Akhtar or a Shane Bond or the accuracy of Glenn McGrath or Chaminda Vaas or the magical spin of Shane Warne or Muttiah Muralitharan he had no troubles what so ever. A young Tendulkar would step out of his crease and smash those huge sixes, while there would be days where he would hang around and anchor the innings. And it was not as if he had no pressure. The expectations on him from the people back home would be enourmous for he received the title of "God of Cricket" from his own Cricket crazy nation. There came a time when people at home would switch off their televisions when he used to get out. Such was the dependence of the team on him. In 2003 World Cup he lead by examples for his team scoring about 673 runs in 11 matches. He dominated bowlers in such a way that the bowlers fear him. Infact Shane Warne has said it a number of times that he would have nightmares of Tendulkar smashing him while batting. Once Henry Olanga of Zimbabwe tried to mess with the Master by giving him a send off while dismissing him, the next match Tendulkar smashed him like anything. He was the first player in the history of ODI Cricket to score a double hundred.

    He was equally a good bowler and infact has more 5 wicket hauls than somebody like Shane Warne. He usually bowled leg-spin like Warne. He also bowled medium pace while at times would bowl off-spin.

    Kapil Dev - 'The Haryana Hurricane' India's only true fast bowling All-Rounder in the history was the man responsible for changing the face of Indian cricket with the historic 1983 WC Triumph.

    Jasprit Bumrah
    Probably a great modern day bowler. Arguably the best of his time. A boy running in by putting in a lot of energy into his run-up slowly but steadily his run-up would gain speed until he jumps with his bowling arm high up and erect while his other arm pointing towards the batsman again in a very errect position perpendicular to his body he would complete his delivery stride in an awkward position and surprise the batsman with his awkward action by a rising delivery at full throttle. The boy soon grabbed the lime-light of the world when he made his ODI debut at the SCG with his team 4-0 down in the 5-match ODI series by taking 2 wickets and conceding just 41 runs, Jasprit Jasbirsingh Bumrah soon became India's number 1 bowler in all formats of the game. He probably did have a difficult time in his career where he over-stepped in the Final against the arch-rivals none other than Pakistan which probably to some extent did stop his team from winning the tournament but Bumrah had a long career ahead. Since the time he made his Test debut he started showing consistency and bowled with accuracy and very soon transformed into a hostile bowler. Bumrah is possibly the best bowler to have ever played for the Indian team and a bowlers like him is actually very hard to find. The injuries does have hampered his progress but he would be back once again to surprise the best batsmen in the world with his hostile bowling.

    Yuvraj Singh - One of all my time favorite players and one of the greatest match winner be it his acrobatic fieldings , handy slow left arm spin or explosive batting Yuvi was a complete package.He played a significant role in India winning the WC after 28 years and a pivotal role in the middle order chasing down successive totals in the mid 2000s.

    4.Yuvraj Singh
    7.Kapil Dev (Possible Captain) batting order will change.
