India's WC cricket squad: Karthik pips Pant, Shankar in at No. 4

The BCCI announced the 15-man squad representing India at the Cricket World Cup in England this year. "That's the reason we went with Dinesh Karthik", after a brief selection meeting which also included Indian captain Virat Kohli at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai on Monday afternoon. Vijay Shankar also found himself in the squad and will most certainly occupy the hyped No. 4 slot.

It goes without saying that Virat Kohli will lead the side and Rohit Sharma will be his deputy.

The Indian team squad announcement for the cricket world cup 2019 will be broadcasted on Star Sports 1, Star Sports 1 Hindi, Star Sports 1HD, Star Sports 1 Hindi HD.

"That is the only reason why we went ahead with DK otherwise Pant was nearly there", he added. MSK Prasad also confirmed that Kedar Jadhav could also bat in the important middle-order position if the need arises with KL Rahul also in the wings.

Shankar, with his "three-dimensional qualities", took the slot which was speculated to go to Ambati Rayudu before his dip in form in the home series against Australia last month. We are looking at him at no. 4 to begin with. Karthik was also a part of India's Champions Trophy winning squad in England in 2013 apart from being a member of India's touring Test squads in England in 2007 and 2018.
