The talented trio first caught the eye of All India Football Federation (AIFF) scouts during RFYS championship finals in January 2017 and soon were invited for India Under-23 selection camp for AFC Championship qualifiers.
The ISL player draft will witness a total of 15 rounds. The sequence for selection of player draft rounds for each club will be determined by a draw of lots on Saturday.
