ICC World Cup: Indian squad to be announced today

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

Naturally, Prasad had to field the maximum questions on Pant's omission and the explanation was Tamil Nadu stumper's experience. In unison, we felt either DK or Pant will only come into the playing eleven if Mahi is injured. 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 previous year also did not make it to the squad.

Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are the all-rounders in the team.

"We have been planning soon after the completion of the Champions Trophy (2017) for this".

Another important decision for the BCCI was to decide who will fill up the No.4 slot in the Indian squad with the likes of KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar and Ambati Rayadu all pushing their cases for the selection. "It all depends on the team management", Prasad indicated. The World Cup will take place in England and Wales.

According to our MLB Public Betting Chart page, 64% of the betting tickets are on the Rays to beat the Blue Jays on the moneyline. Toronto didn't get its first base-runner until the fourth inning when Chirinos issued a lead-off walk to Randal Grichuk .

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.

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

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

However, Prasad said that Navdeep Saini and Khaleel Ahmed's names were discussed.

The much-debated number four slot, whether Pant or Karthik go as the second wicket-keeper behind MS Dhoni and finally, if the team will pick a fourth pacer or an additional third spinner considering that the wickets will be on the slower side at this time of the year in England.
