'Gulab Nagar Junglees' are a bunch of youngsters, namely Guru, Gyani, Bull, Bablu, Shekhar and Ajay. These youngsters, under the coaching and guidance of Sweety Aunty, hone their cricket skills and go against a bunch of big bad bullies, who would play the game but never by the rules. Meanwhile, Col. Singh and Sweety Aunty are the die-hard supporters of the youngsters. Thakral, a wealthy businessman, is often at odds with the youngsters, subjecting them to one challenge after another. The youngsters take on challenge after challenge to get out of every tough situation they find themselves in. As a result, each episode is a cricket match against a new set of opponents. While the opponents vary, the youngsters often find themselves pitted against Thakral, who intends to acquire the Gulab Nagar Society land.

- Gyani: He's the youngest, shortest and smartest member of the team. He's obsessed with cricket and knows every tiny detail of cricket history. Unfortunately, he's also their weakest player.
- Bablu: He's the lazy fat kid who unknowingly causes a mess most of the time. He has the unique skill of never missing any ball that is thrown at him.
- Bull: He's a gentle giant; a child at heart. He has a soft spot for babies and butterflies.
- Shekhar: He's a lean, slender kid with the unusual gift of running as fast as a speeding train. He is always wearing a helmet for unknown reasons.
- Ajay: He's a smart kid from the rich neighbourhood who likes to hang out with the Gulab Nagar Society youngsters. He is one of the best players on the team. He is resentful of being pampered by his devoted butler Manikchand.
- Sweety Aunty: She's a kind, affectionate and loving woman who has two passions in life - cooking and cricket. Besides that, she is a die-hard fan of the youngsters and volunteers to become their coach.
- Col. Singh: He's a resident of Gulab Nagar Society who develops a love/hate relationship with the youngsters. He is shrewd, judgmental and a strict disciplinarian.
- Thakral: He's a wealthy businessman and the manager of Breach Candy Cricket Club who cannot stand the Gulab Nagar youngsters. He's an egotistical maniac who goes to any length to win against the youngsters.
