This is the season of Indian captains in the IPL. Indians helm eight of the 10 franchises. Among them, Shikhar Dhawan is the oldest at 39, and Shubman Gill the youngest at 24. Seven of them are in the 24-30 age range. Apter then would be to call IPL-17 this the season of young Indian captains.

Some are regulars in the national team; some semi-regulars. Some hyped as future talismen; some circulating on the fringes. This IPL for them, thus, would be more than just about excelling in their primary skills, but also a stiff examination of leadership skills, a testing ground, an audition.
