Indian Squad for World Cup 2019 is Announced

Indian Squad for World Cup 2019 is Announced

In unison, we felt either DK or Pant will only come into the playing eleven if Mahi is injured.

England captain Eoin Morgan feels Pakistan are one of the strongest contenders for the upcoming ICC Men s Cricket World Cup 2019 that starts on 30 May. The side, expectedly led by Virat kohli, comprises five specialist batsmen, two wicket-keepers, three fast bowlers, three all-rounders and two specialist spinners.

Former cricketer Mohammad Kaif also took to Twitter and shared his thoughts on the ICC World Cup team India.

Pant, 21, is one of India's emerging talents but the selectors have opted for 33-year-old Karthik's experience. That is the reason that went in favour of Dinesh Karthik. "But let me tell you that in the last month or so, there have been a couple of players who have really cropped up like Vijay Shankar", he said.

Tamil Nadu all-rounder Vijay Shankar made it for his "three-dimensional" qualities. "After the (2017) Champions Trophy, we tried quite a few people in that position". The debate for the number four was shut down finally with Ambati Rayudu being dropped for being inconsistent despite getting enough chances.

The selection committee has opted to go with KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik as the batsmen alongside Kohli, Dhawan, Rohit, Kedar and MS Dhoni.

"And in the second part of the tournament, when the wickets will be more dry, we felt Jadeja will be handy".

Rahul' selection could also mean bad news for Karthik and Pant. The main competition in the 15-man squad will be for three spots - the No.4 slot, the second wicketkeeper and the fourth pacer. In the bowling department, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have been selected.

However, Prasad said that Navdeep Saini and Khaleel Ahmed's names were discussed. Will Ravindra Jadeja go to England in place of the fourth seamer?
