Sehwag, Bhogle, Varun Dhawan & Others Go Mad As Selectors Announce India’s World Cup Squad


After all the speculations, the selection committee led by MSK Prasad has finally announced India’s World Cup squad. Interestingly, it was the first time that such an event was held live on Star Sports where the Chief Selector MSK Prasad and BCCI secretary Amitabh Chaudhry addressed the media.

So who will India’s number 4 at the World Cup be? Well, the debate has finally been put to rest as surprisingly both Rishbah Pant and Ambati Rayudu were excluded from the squad. Dinesh Karthik and Vijay Shankar were included in their place instead. The selectors were quite impressed with Vijay Shankar in the limited opportunities he got and further added that even Kedar Jadhav or KL Rahul could bat at number 4 if the need arises.


As far as Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s back up was concerned, Dinesh Karthik would be in that ‘Avatar’ if the need arises. While it always has been a case after a teams selection in any sport, the jury was with and against the selectors in regards to the choices they made.

While many felt that Dinesh Karthik finally got the dues he deserved, many believed that Rishabh Pant is someone who could change the game single-handedly and should have been on that plane to England. There were many who also felt that Ambati Rayudu was given a raw deal and KL was offered more than he deserved. While we leave you with how Twitter reacted, we would love to know your opinion on this one. What’s your take on India’s selected 15 for the ICC World Cup 2019?
