PCB conducts players' fitness tests for World Cup 2019

Salman Butt believes Khushdil Shah is a star in the making and has a bright future ahead of him Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pakistan Cup Pakistan cricket

He also commented on KL Rahul's inclusion. Kohli will play his third edition while Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were all a part of the 2015 edition.

The Indian team squad announcement for the cricket world cup 2019 will broadcast on Monday, April 15, 2019, from 3:30 pm onwards.

The selection committee has opted to go with KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik as the batsmen alongside Kohli, Dhawan, Rohit, Kedar and Dhoni. Pant, who made a late claim for his inclusion in the squad, missed out after Dinesh Karthik was chosen as the backup keeper while Ambati Rayudu, who was a regular in the ODI squad until past year also did not make it to the squad.

Karthik, the oldest Indian player in terms of global debut (three months before Mahendra Singh Dhoni in September 2004), was also part of the Indian squad during its disastrous 2007 World Cup campaign. That is the reason that went in favour of Dinesh Karthik.

'We did give a few more chances to Ambati Rayudu but Vijay Shankar gives three dimensions.

As reported by PTI earlier, Prasad confirmed that Shankar is being seen as a potential number four candidate along with Rahul and Kedar Jadhav. "It all depends on the team management", Prasad indicated.

Marner, Leafs handle Bruins in Game 1
Our four lines played very well tonight with our defensive core. "I've been thinking just to hit the net and get it on it". Mats Sundin did it against the Buffalo Sabres in Game 4 of 1999 Eastern Conference Final.

The pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have also been included in the squad.

Another possible headache for the selectors could be whether to settle for a third spinner in form of Ravindra Jadeja or the fourth pacer.

However, Prasad said that Navdeep Saini and Khaleel Ahmed's names were discussed.

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.

England, ranked No.1 on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team rankings, have been widely touted as favourites for the mega-event.
