5. Munaf Patel

Munaf Patel is the only player in this list to have made a cut twice into a 15-man squad. He was part of the 2007 and 2011 World Cup squads and produced a brilliant performance in the latter, missing just one game and taking 2/40 in the semifinal against Pakistan.

4. Axar Patel

Axar Patel kick-started his career with a stellar performance in the 2014 ITL, where he was named the best-emerging player. He then made his international debut against Bangladesh and was part of the 15-man Indian squad for the bilaterals against Windies and Sri Lanka.

3. Dinesh Mongia

Dinesh Mongia played only one World Cup for India in 2003, due to his attacking batting style and a prior impressive knock of 159 off 147 deliveries against Zimbabwe. He played over 50 ODIs for the country, and was almost in contention to make it to the 2007 World Cup squad as well.

2. Piyush Chawla

Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid and Anil Kumble's failure to win a World Cup medal is surprising, especially when compared to the success of Piyush Chawla. He managed to impress the selectors with his domestic performance.

1.Stuart Binny

Stuart Binny was an integral part of the Rajasthan side, making fine contributions with bat and ball. His most memorable performance in Indian colours came against Bangladesh where he registered the best figures by an Indian bowler in ODI cricket (6/4).
