When we think of the top contenders who could possibly lift the 2019 Cricket Word Cup, India is one such name that instantly pop up in our minds. While India have a plethora of talent to choose from, they have announced the 15-man squad that will be travelling to the UK.
- The squad was announced on Monday.
- Virat Kohli will lead the squad.
- The inclusion of Dinesh Karthik was the notable factor.
- Rishabh Pant was suprisingly omitted from the squad.
- The squad was announced by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Acting Honorary Secretary Amitabh Choudhary, with Chairman of Selectors MSK Prasad sharing the dais.
- Here’s the squad:
Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar, MSD (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami.
That’s a strong enough team to fight for the big one.
