The Wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik made his Tamil Nadu Cricket team debut in 2002 against Baroda in a first class match. Karthik would go on to make his international debut in 2004 but in the same year he would be replaced by MS Dhoni. With Dhoni having a long career as a wicket-keeper batsman, Karthik’s appearances in the Indian cricket team got short, especially in the playing XI. In 2008 when IPL came around, he was among the first few cricketers from the state to be part of this T20 tournament. Others were Lakshmipathy Balaji, Subramaniam Badrinath & Abhinav Mukund. DK, thus, is among the top Tamil Nadu Players in IPL 2021.

Ash has since then added numbers and variety to his bowling and test batting. He was listed among the top Tamil Nadu Players in IPL 2021 as an integral part of the Delhi Capitals franchise, before Corona surge had him taking off from the league, and further the league getting postponed.
The Leg Spinner Varun Chakravarthy Vinod would make his first class debut for Tamil Nadu in 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy where he would come out as the leading wicket-taker for his team. This would take him to his IPL debut in 2019 for Kings XI Punjab who would pick the spinner at a price tag of 8.4 Cr INR. During 2020 season’s auction, he was picked by Kolkata Knight Riders and since then he’s been part of this side. Varun is, thus, among the Tamil Nadu Players in IPL 2021.
The off spinner-all-rounder Washington Sundar started playing for Tamil Nadu cricket team in 2016 as he made debut in Ranji Trophy for the team. Based on his performances in domestic cricket for Tamil Nadu, he was picked in the India U-19 team for the World Cup 2016. Sundar made his Indian Premier league debut in 2017 for Rising Pune Supergiant before being picked by Royal Challengers Bangalore during IPL 2018 auctions. Washington Sundar has been with his side since then as he features among the Tamil Nadu Players in IPL 2021.
The Left arm medium pacer first played for Tamil Nadu Cricket team during 2014–15 Ranji Trophy. Thangarasu Natarajan made to Indian Premier League in 2017 when Kings XI Punjab bought him for 3 crore Indian Rupee. In the 2018 auctions, he was picked by Sunrisers Hyderabad, but it was in 2020 that he got into the playing XI of the franchise. Natarajan would pick 16 wickets from the season and get to Indian Cricket team as a net bowler, who would make debut in all formats for India on their tour to Australia. The Left armer continue to represent Tamil Nadu Players in IPL 2021 as a part of the Hyderabad based team.
