Marc Ahuja, captain and key batsman, the Mumbai-born player has T20I experience and is the lynchpin of the batting line-up. A solid, anchor batsman, he starred in both the 2020 and 2021 ECS Hungary tournaments for back-to-back title winners, Royal Tigers.

Satyadeep Aswathnarayan, wicketkeeper and big-hitting batsman with T20I experience, he is a middle-order gun to watch out for.

Abhishek Kheterpal, right-arm fast bowler who loves taking the new ball and can swing it both ways, he is a genuine threat in the powerplay overs. He was the top wicket-taker in FanCode ECS Hungary 2021 with 14 wickets at an average of 10.00 and economy rate of 8.23.
