Would you treat 'who' as singular or plural in the following?
No wonder that the designer is one of those who has been approached for the design job at Schiaparelli.

I believe that who here takes those as an antecedent.

rajesh jain1. One of the students is playing cricket.2. He is one of those students who are playing cricket.Am I right?
yes
No. It is not students who are playing cricket, but one student who is playing cricket. However, "He is one of those students who is playing cricket" sounds unnatural to me. We'd almost certainly express this thought as you did in your first sentence, "One of the students is playing cricket".

1) I didn't take both sentences as having the same meaning; they clearly don't.
2) Sentence 2 sounds okay to me in a suitable context.
Imagine a small group of girls talking at recess. One asks of another: 'Who do you like?' And, without pointing (and being obvious) she answers: 'He's one of those students playing cricket.' That way she keeps the suspense going and remains discrete That's natural conversation. Thanks

The verb needed is 'have'.

No wonder that the designer is one of those who have been approached for the design job at Schiaparelli.

The fact that more than one designer has been approached is indicated by 'those who have been approached...'

If only one designer were involved, then the sentence should be:

One of the designers has been approached for the design job at Schiaparelli.
