Shaping the team for 2019 WC
With less than a year to go for the mega event- the World Cup, it is high time that Indian team should find their best combination in order to achieve success in a better way. Talking about the team currently we have 20 odd guys who have equal chances to make into top 15 but by this post our complete focus is to figure out top 15 players which are likely to play in WC19 according to current scenario.
Openers: This most important slot is to be taken by India’s best duo Rohit and Shikhar Dhawan with KL.Rahul as a back-up. Currently Dhawan and Rahul are in top form but Rohit’s form can’t be taken into account over his talent, so he is all likely to play in the mega event next year.
Middle Order: The most problmetic area for the team is it’s middle order, with Virat taking no.3 spot and MS.Dhoni likely to take 5th spot and with Dinesh Karthik taking the 6th, the only spot left is 4 which is likely to be taken by Ambati Rayudu on the back of a strong IPL performance and Kedar Jadhav is likely to be the backup player for the middle order due to his all-round abilities.
All-Rounder: With no doubt Hardik Pandya and Washington Sundar are likely to take the All-Rounders job for India as we don’t have any better options than these two and also both the players are in great form and especially Hardik who has taken 19 odd wickets in this years IPL, which indeed is a good sign for the team. Also Sundar will be back up for the Indian spin duo.
Spinners: As we all know it is becoming ruling era of wrist spinners so with no doubt India will be taking Chahal, Kuldeep as its two frontline spinners.
Seamers: The Indian fast bowling contingent will be lead by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Bumrah with Shardul Thakur as a back up and currently all the players are in top form and are likey to be fit fo upcoming England tour.
Shreyas Iyer, Axar Patel, Sidharth Kaul and Umesh Yadav are likely to be back-ups for players in case of injury.
So, this is likely to be the team for the Mega Event which is to be held in England next year.
Expected Indian Squad:
Virat Kohli(C), MS.Dhoni(Wk), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, W.Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Chahal, Kuldeep, D.Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, KL.Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, Hardik Pandya
