Rahul and Karthik in, Pant and Rayudu out

ICC World Cup: Indian squad to be announced today

He is in the team for the World Cup to be played in England and Wales.

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar Monday said he is surprised at young glovesman Rishabh Pant's exclusion from India's World Cup squad given his "exceptionally" good batting form and "great" improvement in wicketkeeping skills.

Interestingly, the selectors made a decision to drop Ambati Rayudu, who was, until a couple of months ago, was India's first-choice "number 4" batsman. KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya, who missed a lot of matches in early 2019 due to "Koffee with Karan" controversy, were selected in the squad.

Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Vijay Shankar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami.

Moreover, the selectors had dropped Dinesh Karthik from the squad, thus giving a big indication that Pant was ahead in the pecking order.

"We are more or less sorted", Kohli said.

Dinesh Karthik, 33, was given the second wicketkeeper's slot over rising 21-year-old star Rishabh Pant.

"The second wicketkeeper comes into play only if Mahi (Mahendra Singh Dhoni) is injured. So that at juncture if it is a crucial match, a quarterfinal or a semifinal, keeping also matters", Prasad's statement was indicative of what five wise men think about his glovework. That is the reason that went in favour of Dinesh Karthik.

His talent has never been questioned but Pant has often been criticised for throwing it away, an aspect of his game he has improved upon but apparently not enough to convince the selectors, at least for the World Cup. "It's just unfortunate that he's missed out", MSK had said. "With Dinesh Karthik in and Kedar Jadhav, we've plenty of options at No.4 right now". "That scored for him", Prasad stated.

"After the Champions Trophy, we have tried quite a few middle-order batsmen, which also included Karthik, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey".

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

"Karthik has a lot of experience as an all rounder, can be match victor, game changer, an athlete with good fielding ability, if needed".

"We are looking at him at No. 4 to begin with". Karthik wins the duel he had with fellow veteran Ambati Rayudu for the slot, while Lokesh Rahul offers another option for the position.
