India announced its ICC cricket world cup 2019 player list on Monday, 15 April. Inclusion of Dinesh Karthik was a big surprise as he was not part of the team in recent ODI series against Australia. After his selection in the world cup 2019 sqaud, there left no place for the young energetic wicket-keeper, Rishabh Pant. He could not impress the selectors as he just scored 36 and 16 in his last two innings. In addition, Karthik’s wicket keeping skills also played the role in winning the ticket to England.
In the absence of Ambati Rayudu and Pant in the India Cricket Team, Vijay Shankar is the ideal candidate for No.4 position. Vijay Shankar is not only a good batsman but he is also an effective bowler in overcast conditions which is likely in England. He is also an excellent fielder. Jadhav, Karthik, and Dhoni could also fill this position and even the captain himself said he would be happy to bat at number 4. KL Rahul can also fill the position at No. 4 but as per Prasad, he is in the team as reserve Opener. India would have 2 warm-up matches before the big event to settle to finalize it.
Indian Cricket Team Captain for World Cup 2019
Q) Who is the Captain of India Cricket Team in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019?
Virat Kohli is Indian Cricket Team Captain for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. As per Latest ICC ODI Rankings, he is currently No. 1 ODI batsman. He has been very successful as captain of India as they have won many matches and series under his captaincy but this will be the first time he will lead India in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Khaleel Ahmed, left arm pacer, has not been outstanding during 8 one day internationals with only 11 wickets, therefore, selectors didn’t include him in ICC cricket world cup 2019 indian squad. Instead, they went with the tested bowling combination of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami. India is going with just three pacers and the inclusion of two fast bowling all-rounders, Hardik Pandya, and Vijay Shankar, will make up the loss of 4th fast bowler. Prasad said they would also accompany four pacers with them during world cup 2019 including Ahmed and Navdeep Saini. They could be used in the event if the need arises, he added.

The spin department includes Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal as specialists and Ravindra Jadeja will add variety. Jadeja can come handy in the later part of the tournament when the wickets will get drier.
Ravindra Jadeja and Muhammad Shami finally made their way to the ICC cricket world cup Indian squad with their stunning efforts. They were not even in the ODI team a year back. In the presence of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzendra Chahal, there was no space for Jadeja and he could not play in the team between July 2017 and September 2018. Similarly, Shami could just play 5 ODIs between 2015 & 2019 but since the start of this year, he has been an important member of the team.
