Virat Kohli, Tammy Beaumont, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran and Rory Burns. "Despite finishing on the losing side, India captain Virat Kohli shone with the bat, laying to rest his struggles in England in 2014," said Booth. "His Test batting, especially in England, was magnificent, while his 50-over form moved to a new level - if that was possible."
