India World Squad 2019 : BCCI announced the 15-man squad for the World Cup 2019 in Mumbai on Monday.
Karthik, Rahul Included in the squad World Cup 2019 . Rayudu and Rishabh Pant left out squad
India WCW 19 Squad:
Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma , Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni (Wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav , Yuzvendra Chahal , Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, KL Rahul , Vijay Shankar, Dinesh Karthik(Wk), Ravindra Jadeja
There had been a lot of talk regarding who would be India’s crucial No. 4 batsman.
“It’s definitely a case where we have debated at length and all of us in unison felt that either Rishabh Pant or DK will only come into the playing XI if Dhoni is injured. If it is a crucial match, like a quarter-final or a semi-final or like an important game, wicketkeeping also matters. So that’s the only reason that we went ahead with Karthik. Otherwise Rishabh Pant was almost there.” – MSK Prasad
Ravindra Jadeja took up the third spinner’s slot, alongside wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav. The four pacers in the side picked themselves with Jasprit Bumrah leading an attack that also includes Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and all-rounder Hardik Pandya.
