After the loss against New Zealand in the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, the Men in Blue will look to start afresh when they lock horns against West Indies starting August 3. The Virat Kohli led side will miss the services of veteran wicketkeeper batsmen and former skipper MS Dhoni as he had conveyed his unavailability to the board. He will be spending the next two months with the Parachute regiment of the Territorial Army. The side will also miss the services of all-rounder Hardik Pandya as he suffered a groin injury during the World Cup, while 3D player Vijay Shankar is still recovering from the toe injury which he sustained during the premiere event. This had opened doors for several players like Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer and Navdeep Saini who were in the reckoning for a long time.

Here we have a look at the young players who can be groomed for the future:

3. Rahul Chahar:

Some notable contributions in this edition of the Indian Premier League for Mumbai Indians has given the Rajasthan born leg-spinner a nod in Team India's squad for the tour to West Indies. He picked up 13 wickets at a staggering economy rate of 6.55. His deceptive variations will make him difficult to get away with and he might just be the man who might do the job for Virat Kohli at crucial situations.

2. Shreyas Iyer:

Shreyas Iyer is one player who might grab the crucial number four spot in the current Indian side. He has amassed tons for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy and has played some handy knocks for Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capitals) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He also fared decently in the limited opportunities presented to him at the international arena. Till date, he has represented India in 5 matches, scoring 210 runs at an average of 42 striking at 97. If he makes full use of the opportunities presented to him, he might stay in the Indian squad for a while.

1. Mayank Agarwal:

The Karnataka born opener was drafted into the Indian test squad for the tour to Australia after he scored plenty of runs in the domestic circuit. The selectors have also conveyed that Murali Vijay has been dropped from the side after a series of low scores. With the side in pursuit of a reliable opener for the longest format of the game, Mayank Agarwal should look to capitalize on the opportunity presented to him and replicate performances similar to the ones Down Under early this year.
