Mayank Agarwal is another such batsman who could come into the action if Virat Kohli faces any interruption during the mega World Cup. The Karnataka-born cricketer recently made his international debut against Australia and impressed one and all with his flamboyant display of batting in the tough Aussie conditions.

The 27-year-old made his way to the Indian Test team after some astonishing domestic figures. Agarwal usually opens the innings but can surely play at the number 3 position. He averages 50 in first-class cricket and 49 in List-A cricket, which surely defines how consistent he has been with the bat.
