'Three-dimensional' Vijay Shankar excited for his maiden World Cup campaign


Another favourite for the No 4 spot is KL Rahul, who is back among runs, and could also end up as the middle-order choice. India Team for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Announced: Virat Kohli-led Side Includes KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar and Ravindra Jadeja; No Place for Ambati Rayudu and Rishabh Pant.

"That is the only reason why we went ahead with DK otherwise Pant was nearly there", he added. Predictably, no surprise change was announced on Monday as India will go into the World Cup with arguably the best bowling attack in the tournament. Having tried Shankar at the top, they have backed him in the squad. Prasad clarified that Rahul would be the third opener and will only be brought into the middle order if all other options failed.

The reserve wicket-keeper slot has gone to Dinesh Karthik, and this has triggered a big debate on social media.

The wicketkeeper-batsman went on to play until the 19th over and notched 81 runs from 52 balls with six boundaries and four sixes. Bumrah accounted for the wickets of Sanju Samson and Steve Smith as Mumbai Indians almost pulled off a stunning victory.

"Over the four years we've been together, we have had so many guys who have contributed to the position we find ourselves", Morgan reflected.

India's young wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant who missed out the bus for the World Cup squad will be "consoled and taken into confidence".

Chief selector MSK Prasad said: "In unison, we all felt either Pant or DK will come into the XI if Mahi [Dhoni] is injured". In an important game wicket keeping is also important.

Mumbai: Dinesh Karthik was over the moon. Pant no doubt is a gifted talent in abundance. A back injury ahead of the 2018 Asia Cup and subsequent off-field controversy had sidelined him for some time. It's just unfortunate that he's missed out.

"We have seen Karthik finishing matches under pressure". In a country where quality cricketers are plentiful, each time a squad or team is selected, about 15 people are overjoyed, but the vast majority are left with an axe to grind. The 37-year-old, who has played in a total of 341 ODIs for India scoring 10,500 runs, is expected to be the go-man for skipper Virat Kohli in pressure situations.

'We did give a few more chances to Ambati Rayudu but Vijay Shankar gives three dimensions. Apart from his batting, he can bowl; if the conditions are suitable, overcast, which we might encounter in England, he might bowl a bit and he's a fantastic fielder. He will probably be the number four batsman, which had been another gap in the 15-member squad.
