Under pressure, we have seen Dinesh Karthik finishing matches.

India captain Kohli's pre-IPL statement that the cash-rich league will have no effect on the selections proved to be prophetic as Pant's 245 runs in the T20 showpiece fell short of Karthik's 111 runs.

India have chosen wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik instead of Rishabh Pant in their squad for the World Cup.

DK beat Pant in the race to become the second wicket-keeper in the Indian team for the upcoming World Cup in England and Wales. Vijay Shankar made his way to the squad after some notable knocks in recent matches.

At least 11 players are certain to be picked into the squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami.


"It is definitely a case which we have debated at length". "The second wicketkeeper comes into play only if Mahi (MS Dhoni) is injured. That has gone in his favour ahead of @RishabPant777".

Prasad said that Vijay Shankar, an all-rounder, provides a "three-dimensional" option to Ambati Rayudu in the number 4 position. "But let me tell you that in the last month or so, there have been a couple of players who have really cropped up like Vijay Shankar", he said. "After the (2017) Champions Trophy, we tried quite a few people in that position". We are looking at Vijay Shankar as a number four batsman.

The bowlers will be assisted by the wrist-spinning duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal while Kedar Jadhav is expected to roll his arm if required. They also have three pacers and two spinners.

The pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have also been included in the squad.

England, ranked No.1 on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team rankings, have been widely touted as favourites for the mega-event.
