India in ICC WC 2019

India Squad in ICC world cup 2019: Dinesh Karthik makes a surprise entry in India’s 15-member squad for the World Cup 2019, announced by the BCCI in Mumbai on Monday. On paper, it seems India decided to stick to the One-Day International squad they fielded over the recent few months — in the ODI series against Australia and New Zealand — except for a surprise inclusion and two exclusions. As expected, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Virat Kohli now picked for the top three spots. KL Rahul was included as the back-up opener. Kuldeep-Chahal and Jadeja are the top three picks of team India in ICC World cup 2019.
