Elder brother of star all-rounder Hardik Pandya, Krunal was part of the squad for the three T20I series in England but did not get a game. The 27-year old was named in the XII after consistent performances for Mumbai Indians, Baroda and India A in the last three years.
After grabbing headlines during Asia Cup, Khaleel ended the ODI series against West Indies as the third-highest wicket-taker with seven wickets in four matches. The 20-year was only behind spinners Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav in the list.

Debut today for Khaleel Ahmed. How things change. Only got a game in the IPL and now playing for India. Good on him. Also debut, much deserved, for Krunal Pandya, one of only two (maybe three with Gowtham) Indian all-rounders (with brother Hardik) in the IPL.
