No 4 slot in focus as selectors meet to pick squad”

Where to Watch the Live Telecast of Indian Team Squad Announcement for ICC World Cup 2019? .

ICC World Cup India team players 2019 announcement preview: India's 15-member squad for the ICC World Cup will be selected on April 15 in Mumbai. The Committee of Administrators along with office bearers had decided on the date during a meeting last week.

Khushdil's comments also come after Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur admitted that the national team are lacking a quality finisher going into the World Cup.

While skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, M.S. Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah picked themselves on the back of some consistent show in recent times, there were three main areas of concern that the selectors needed to take a call on.

"We are more or less sorted", Kohli said. We are not at all confused. 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.

While most part of the squad was predictable, a noteworthy exclusion was the absence of the talented wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, who made way for the much more experienced and versatile Dinesh Karthik. The selectors will be faced with many such questions when they sit to pick the squad.

But there was no debate on KL Rahul's inclusion and he is set to be the third opener or a potential middle-order floater alongside Shankar.

Karthik has eclipsed Pant to the second wicket-keeper's spot. Both the wicket-keeper batsmen have been plagued with inconsistency and that could go against them.

With Hardik Pandya and Shankar to perform the duties of a combined fourth pacer, there was no place for an additional specialist speedster in the line-up.
