From being the number seven Test side in the world, that travelled to West Indies in August 2016, to now beating Australia as the number one Test squad, India has had a stellar cricket season. They won all five series that they played – against West Indies, New Zealand, England, Bangladesh and Australia.
As the team successfully progressed in the season, some new cricketers joined the squad while some of the older ones achieved new feats.
In the Indian bowling order, Ravichandran Ashwin continued to ride his purple wave while Ravindra Jadeja crept to the top of ICC’s Test bowlers ranking.
Jayant Yadav made his debut and impressed with his exploits in the three Test he played against England.
A consistent part of the team through the season, Umesh Yadav played 12 of the 13 Test matches at home this season, and even picked up 17 wickets against Australia making him the most successful series in his six-year Test career.
