IPL crucial for WC selection: BCCI

Jos Buttler Confident He Can Reach India Captain Virat Kohli

When Gambhir said Kohli should be thankful he has held on to the captaincy, he possibly alluded to the IPL's evolution into a tournament that has less space for sentiment than worldwide cricket.

While welcoming the new parameters launched by the cricket website which he felt would be of some help to coaches, Dravid said "numbers are not everything but at the same time you can not ignore numbers".

The former captain added, "I don't know how they [BCCI] will avoid".

Going into the last ODI series before the upcoming World Cup - against Australia - India skipper Virat Kohli had said that Indian players' performance in the IPL wouldn't have any bearing with selection in the squad for the showpiece event.

Virat also took to Twitter and shared a candid moment with Chhetri and said that it was good to have the Indian captain around.

However, Sourav Ganguly, former India captain, has suggested that consistency leads to success and not the other way around. What he has done with the bat in every format of the game. "What it has (the outcome against Australia) has reminded us is that we have to play the World Cup very, very well", said Dravid. It's their career, you play at the top level consistently and you can get injured. "Look at the way he played in the IPL last year, he got a full tournament, 14 games, and he was probably the second highest run-getter in the IPL last year". How many Indian wicketkeeper-batsmen have got Test hundreds in England and Australia, and he scored them at ease. One thing I have always endorsed is that playing more matches always helps in that zone and rhythm is not [stopped]. "For me, he is your future".

Ponting, on his part, said: "The first thing I would do is pick him (Pant) in that Indian squad for the World Cup". I have been watching him at nets for the last four years. He is the sort of guy, with that kind of talent, he can win you a World Cup...

Heading into the 2019 edition in England, India are faced with the No.4 conundrum and a clearer picture will possibly emerge after the first three weeks of the IPL.

"In a way I think its a good balancing factor".

"I spoke to the players and they say they want lot of games to stay in touch". Getting opportunities at the global level, at the IPL level, this will never come back, so find a way to get rest, find a way to stay fresh and keep playing. "Dont think there should be pressure (on IPL franchises) from the Cricket Board (BCCI) (to rest some players)", the former Test batsman turned TV commentator remarked.

"It'll be a good and competitive World Cup because the format is really good".
