Patel has had a stellar season as he also guided Gujarat to Ranji Trophy triumph after a five-wicket win over defending champions Mumbai. In both the innings, he scored 90 and 143 runs respectively. His successful year with the bat helped him earn a call for the national team.

Parthiv made a comeback into the national team after eight years when wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha was ruled out due to an injury. On his comeback, he scored 195 in three matches which include an unbeaten 67 in the Mohali Test and an 112-ball 71 in the last and the fifth Test in Chennai.

He continued his fine form in the just concluded tenth season of the IPL, where he played some match-winning knocks for the franchise and was their highest run scorer.
