New Delhi: The Team India dressing room in Bangladesh will feature some fresh faces and some familiar ones.

But there is a common thread running through the young blood chosen for the tour. They know they sit on the cusp of a unique opportunity: to emerge as heroes when the country desperately seeks some.

Manoj Tiwary was the cornerstone of Bengal's Ranji Trophy run that saw them reach the final of India's premier domestic tournament this year. The 24-year-old has been spoken of highly and now has the chance to live his dream.

"My childhood dream has been to play for India, and play consistently; not to just go there and play one match and come back. I want to be a successful cricketer for India," Tiwary told CNN-IBN.

On Piyush Chawla's young shoulders rests the huge weight of succeeding Anil Kumble as India's leg-spinning future. He will have to wait for a go in the Test arena but has his opportunity now in coloured clothing.

"People say that I'm the substitute for Anil Kumble. It feels great, but at the same moment I was just concentrating on my game. Like I'm playing the Ranji Trophy or Under-19s, whenever I get the chance, I see what happens there," teenager Chawla says.

At 28, Ramesh Powar has been the 'nearly man' for a while, waiting beneath the huge wings of Kumble and Harbhajan. Now he has a shot at making his own place in the sun; in both Tests and one-dayers.

"I will always try and perform better to cement my place in the Indian team," Powar says.

The India team sheet in Bangladesh will feature some desperate young men, keen to set off on their international journey with hope and passion.
