4. Dinesh Karthik - Kolkata Knight Riders

The former KKR captain is the vice-captain of the franchise and will be the man to fill in the shoes of Eoin Morgan in his absence. Dinesh Karthik notably proposed to hand the captaincy duties to the England skipper midway through last season, a decision which the KKR management accepted. With skipper Morgan coming to this season on the back of an injury, it is a great asset to have an experienced campaigner like Karthik in the side.
