Virender Sehwag Names His India Squad For World Cup 2019

ICC World Cup: Indian squad to be announced today

World Cup squad to be named on April 15

The Committee of Administrators along with office bearers had decided on the date during a meeting last week.

Indian selectors will announce the team for the World Cup on Monday. Rayudu was part of the 2015 World Cup squad and has since then been a regular part of India's ODI squad.

Here we look at five such players who are left far behind others in the race for a ticket to the World Cup. "Now, it's about giving guys their roles and expect them to stand up".

One more thing which the selectors will need to discuss is the fourth specialist seamer becuase the presence of quality seamers in the side is always a bonus for any side.

While Kohli said India are looking to fill just one more spot, the selectors would know that they have more than one spot to fill and various combinations to look at.

Ambati Rayudu is a notable exclusion from Sehwag's squad.

Experts maintain that the highlight of the discussion will be Rishabh Pant's competition for the second keeper's slot with Dinesh Karthik.

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. Lately, Vijay Shankar has also earned the faith of selectors and he might be on the flight to England as well. Another reason that makes Rahul's case strong is his ability to play as back-up keeper.

Rahul' selection could also mean bad news for Karthik and Pant.
