1. Ravichandran Ashwin:
Everyone knew that Ravichandran Ashwin can be handy with the bat but his best performances came in Tests at home. The off-spinner surprised everyone by scoring two centuries in the Test series in West Indies in 2016. In the first Test of the series, Ashwin managed to string a brilliant partnership with Kohli to help India put a huge score on the board. In the second innings, of West Indies, he also took seven wickets and walked away with the man of the match award.
While the first century came in favourable conditions, his second century of the series and fourth of the career came in much tougher conditions. At one stage India was 126/5 before he built a brilliant partnership with Saha to help India post a competitive score on the board. India won the series 2-0 and Ashwin deservedly got the man of the series award.
