Indian Squad for World Cup 2019 is Announced

Veteran Dinesh Karthik pipped young turk Rishabh Pant in the fight for the second wicket-keeper's slot. India is heading to the World Cup as the 2nd ranked ODI team in the world behind hosts England. He, however, missed the bus in 2011 and the 2015 editions.

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.

Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Vijay Shankar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami.

"Definitely a case where we debated in length".

"We were all in unison that either Pant or DK will come in only when Mahi is injured".

"We went ahead with Karthik because of his experience in big matches".

Prasad said that Vijay Shankar, an all-rounder, provides a "three-dimensional" option to Ambati Rayudu in the number 4 position.

"We have been planning soon after the completion of the Champions Trophy (2017) for this". Vijay Shankar is three dimensional. We also have Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav. "It all depends on the team management", Prasad indicated.

The selectors will also hold discussions over the selection of fourth specialist seamer because in English condition the presence of quality seamers is always beneficial for the team.

"In the last one and half years, it is these two wristies (wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav), who have won us the games but there might be situations where, you require an additional all-rounder in the playing 11, (this is) where Jadeja comes in", Prasad explained. We did give a few more chances to Rayudu. They will bowl in the nets and also stay as a standby should there be an injury.

The pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have also been included in the squad. However, Navdeep Saini and Khaleel Ahmed are the reserve bowlers it seems if the selector's comments are to be believed.
