WORLD CUP: After announcing their Squad for World Cup 2019, India named Navdeep Saini, Avesh Khan, Khaleel Ahmed and Deepak Chahar to assist and help Indian batsmen in World Cup preparation in England.
After choosing 3 pacers and 3 spinners in the 15 men squad, India will take these four to England. According to Chief Selector MSK Prasad, the decision was taken so as to remove the risk of Injuries to the main bowlers.
Rishabh Pant’s omission from the squad made social media jump out of one’s skin. But Chief selector MSK Prasad clearly stated that the inclusion of Dinesh Karthik instead of Rishabh Pant is just because Karthik has better skill than him.
He also said that “In the team, we have the luxury of 7 bowlers. We have covered all the bases and this is one of the most balanced Indian sides for the World Cup Khaleel and Saini were discussed and they will be around. If the need arises, one of them will go to England,”
The squad looked pretty balanced and good but the final 11 will be decided according to the nature and the behavior of the pitch.
