The World Cup is just around the corner. So, 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 of making into top 15. But by this article our complete focus is to figure out top 15 players which are likely to play in World Cup 2019.
Team By Departments for the World Cup:-
Openers: This most important slot is to be taken by India’s best duo Rohit and Shikhar with KL.Rahul as a back-up. Currently Shikhar and Rohit are in top ODI form with Rahul also getting into groove.
Middle Order: The most problmetic area for the team is the middle order. With Virat taking no.3 spot and MS.Dhoni likely to take 5th spot. Either Rayudu or Dinesh Karthik can compete for the no. 4 with Kedar Jadhav being the ideal choice for no. 6 spot due to his bowling ability.
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.
Spinners: As we all know wrist spinners are the King of white ball cricket, so Kuldeep and Chahal will be the frontline spinners along with Sundar as back-up.
