8. Jeet Raval
After playing eight first-class seasons for Auckland, Jeet Ashok Raval finally made his international debut for New Zealand, last year. He has not been someone who took the domestic cricket by storm but was always a consistent performer. The left-hander seems tailor-made for Test cricket and possesses virtues of a solid opener. In 12 Test innings, the classical Gujarat-born batsman has made 493 runs at 44.81 with five half-centuries. Raval who has studied in the same school as Indian wicket-keeper batsman; Parthiv Patel, was at the top of his game in South Africa Tests where he notched up scores of 52, 36, 80 and 88.
