Rahul, Pant await World Cup fate

Rishabh Pant,World Cup,X-factor

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. Yes, the flamboyant Delhi wicket-keeper batsman, who became India's first-choice keeper in Tests with hundreds in Australia and England - A feat never achieved by any Indian keeper before - lost out the race to World Cup to a much-experienced Dinesh Karthik. A 15 member squad was announced a little while ago. India is heading to the World Cup as the 2nd ranked ODI team in the world behind hosts England.

"Wicketkeeping also matters. That is the reason why we went with Dinesh Karthik otherwise Rishabh Pant was also there", chief selector MSK Prasad was quoted as saying by the media, on the decision to pick Dinesh Karthik over Rishabh Pant.

The #4 slot in the squad is now open and the team can either opt to field an extra all-rounder like Vijay Shankar or play KL Rahul.

"That is the only reason why we went ahead with DK otherwise Pant was nearly there", he added. "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.

As reported by PTI earlier, Prasad confirmed that Shankar is being seen as a potential number four candidate along with Rahul and Kedar Jadhav.

As expected, the pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah made it to the squad and there were no surprises in that aspect. Dinesh Karthik was picked in the team which seems to be a correct call at the moment.

Mnuchin wrote that the request was politically motivated and didn't have an underlying public policy objective. Cohen said the president feared that releasing his returns could lead to an audit and IRS tax penalties.


Ravindra Jadeja's all-round skills and his ability to be restrictive on dry wickets came into consideration during his selection in the 15.

Another possible headache for the selectors could be whether to settle for a third spinner in form of Ravindra Jadeja or the fourth pacer. However, Navdeep Saini and Khaleel Ahmed are the reserve bowlers it seems if the selector's comments are to be believed.
