ICC World Cup 2019

The 15 man squad that will play from India at the ICC World Cup 2019 is announced today, and Virat Kohli to lead and Rohit Sharma to be his deputy. MS Dhoni will be the first-choice as wicketkeeper.

While players like Vijay Shankar, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja made it to the list, Rishabh Pant, recipient of ICC Emerging Player of the year at 2018 ICC Awards, is exempted from the team. Also, Ambati Rayudu, who was suspended from bowling in International Cricket in January this year, will stay out of the game. While the tussle was between Vijay Shankar an Ambati Rayudu, the committee went with Shankar as he has the caliber to be a three-dimensional player.

Five Selector Committee made the decision and we have our Twitter Committee questioning or agreeing to them. While some are all pumped up for May 30, there are set of Cricket Fans who are not happy with the exclusions.
