Agarwal, who replaced Vijay Shankar in the India squad for the remainder of the tournament, shared a picture from India's practice session.

"Doing what I love. Loving what I do," Agarwal tweeted.

Presumptuous fans took it for a clue to Agarwal's imminent debut.

A tweak in the batting-order is expected considering the fragile middle-order, with KL Rahul coming down the order, thus leaving a position at the top of the batting order one of the openers' positions vacant for Agarwal.

Here are some fan reactions though.

Agarwal, who has played two Tests and is yet to play an ODI, was called in to replace all-rounder Shankar last week. Shankar was ruled out of the tournament after sustaining a toe injury.
