    Dont India have any left arm pace bowlers. I miss Zaheer khan probably the best left arm pace bowler from india. India have 1 dimensional bowlers, apart from bumrah no many option for Captain to go to bowler. Bhuvi is good but placid wickets india need express bowler or left arm pace bowler in the squad. India batting heavily rely on top 3 once u get through them quickly you will have a chance to beat India.

    We'll mostly play 2 spinners with Jadhav. Between Jadeja and Chahal one will play

    Unless the conditions are seam friendly,then we can play just Kuldeep

    Looks like India will be only team going to WC with three specialists spinners. And Pak the only team without specialist spinner.

    Vijay Shankar has really earned a spot for himself over the last few weeks. He's a very good batsman and can bowl a few overs of medium pace bowling. Risabh Pant on the other hand has really hurt his case. His batting lacks the professionalism and maturity required in the Indian team but he does have immense talent and can play great knocks for them. But he has to make the most of the few opportunities remaking before the World Cup.

    I think it's a given that India will only go in with 3 fast bowlers and only 2 of them will be in the XI at the same time. Shami and Bumrah get the nod ahead of Bhuvi for the first XI. Kuldeep and Chahal are difference makers and both have to play. Hardik and Kedar will make up the other 10 overs.

    Ambati Rayadu is also a weird case. He has the good performance but it's hard to believe India don't have a better number 4 than him. But he's been preferred over the likes of DK so I guess the managemt likes him. I know they don't want to play Rahul outside the top 3 but he may be a better number 4 than Rayadu.

    This is the squad I think they will go with:

    Dhawan
    Rohit
    Kohli
    Rayadu
    Dhoni
    Kedar
    Hardik
    Kuldeep
    Shami
    Bumrah
    Chahal

    Rahul
    Shankar
    Pant
    Bhuvi

    I agree with OP. That should be India's squad for WC.

    India will most likely field two specialist fast bowlers + Hardik Pandya in their XI for all the matches. Kuldeep is a given and so is Chahal. Jadhav will be just a backup sixth option.

    India needs to resolve the no. 4 issue though.

    Pandya
    Bhuvaneshwar
    Kuldeep
    Shami
    Bumrah

    This will be my starting lineup!

    Rahul (to be used if one of the openers is injured or completely out of form/touch or at No.3 in place of 3rd seamer if the pitch is assisting too much for bowlers and if you need additional batsman as we already have 2 medium pacers in Pandya & Shankar)
    Chahal (will warm the bench and to be used on sluggish pitches - we find such pitches in England sometimes and against teams like Australia/SA who are vulnerable against spin! Otherwise India should not do the mistake as they did in the previous ODI against Australia! Teams have started to work out India's ploy of using 2 wrist spinners in ODIs... It was all fine in the beginning of this plan!)
    Jadeja (will be in the squad as backup spinner! He will be in the squad more for his fielding skills and will be 1st choice substitute fielder when someone gets off the field! Otherwise he doesn't add much value and unfortunately we did not proper replacement for him!)
    Umesh (horrible bowler, but will be in the squad because he at least has experience at top level and will be the choice in worst case during injury!)
    Pant (backup keeper, may not be reliable as middle order bat because we unfortunately did not groom him properly in ODIs like we did in tests! And everyone knows whats the reason for that! But at least he is the better backup keeper than DK or anyone! He may not be the perfect WK at the moment, but we have played even Dravid as WK in World cup, so sometimes plans don't go accordingly!)

    That makes the 16 men squad and I am not sure if anymore are allowed than this... Hopefully Rayudu & DK misses out the squad based on this method of choices! (Hopefully our honorable selectors think this way instead of any lobbying!)

    As I have repeatedly said Vijay Shankar has brought a new kind of confidence and balance to this lineup especially in India. He will be a very handy bowler in English conditions so we may not need that 3rd regular seamer or 2nd regular spinner at least in this world cup!

    I think they’ll probably leave Pant at home now and just have Dinesh Karthik as back up keeper.

    After IPL, the scene will change for sure.
    Main team:

    Dhawan
    Rohit
    Kohli
    KL Rahul
    Shankar
    Dhoni
    Pandya
    Kuldeep
    BK
    Chahal
    Bumrah

    Reserves: Shami, Pant/DK.

    Not a bad team, but a shaky middle order and over reliance on Top 3. Our bowlers have to be at the top of their game and restrict opposition to under 300 to have a chance to be in the finals.

    given that nobody really grabbed no. 4 position Rahane has outside chance to take.. he's 'technically' sound and if he's played well in IPL then he might fly to England..

    Backup opener & no.4 :
    1 ] shootout between pant & karthik .
    2 ] rahul vs raydu vs jadhav : rahul is favorite here



    Spin allrounder : jadeja is favorite here despite his lackluster batting

    Backup seamer : will be selected based on ipl performances.

    Overall imo chances are high that both jadhav & rayadu not selected in worldcup squad.

    India can easily solve their conundrum:

    1) Rohit Sharma
    2) Shikar Dhawan
    3) KL Rahul
    4) Virat Kohli (c)
    5) MS Dhoni (wk)
    6) Kedar Jadhav
    7) Hardik Pandya
    8) Bhuvneshwar Kumar
    9) Mohammad Shami
    10) Jasprit Bumrah
    11) Kuldeep Yadav

    12) Ambati Rayudu
    13) Rishab Pant
    14) Vijay Shankar
    15) Y. Chahal

    16) Khaleel Ahmed (standby)

    Moving Kohli down to four will ensure that the team is no longer top heavy and having the two "greatest chasers" of all time in the middle-order will give confidence to guys like Rahul and Jadhav.

    Two wrist-spinners and only two proper pacers in England, eh? Bring it on.

    might not be on paper but the top 3 won't fail every match... 1 of the 3 will most likely click... plus you have dhoni who bats at a snails pace...

    B Kumar has a good record in England, Shami in the form of his life and Bumrah is Bumrah so will be tough to drop one of those three for Chahal. India will probably play 3 seamers + Kuldeep + Hardik/Jadeja.

    Depending on the conditions, India can definitely go with three pacers- Shami, Bumrah and Bhuvi in the XI, all three will anyways be part of 15 man squad. Add Pandya in the mix as well.

    However, if conditions aren't as such as England used to be known for in past, then from an Indian perspective, surely two proper spinners should be the way to go in the playing XI. Pandya is good enough to do the third pace bowling option alongside Bumrah and Shami. Kul-cha together can be very effective, more so given other team's prolific weaknesses vs spin.

    So, the idea will be to either go with: -

    Bumrah
    Shami
    Kuldeep
    Chahal
    Pandya

    Or,

    Bumrah
    Shami
    Bhuvi
    Kuldeep
    Pandya

    Jadhav will be the sixth backup option either ways.

    At the 2013 CT India went in with B Kumar, Ishant, Umesh, Ashwin and Jadeja for most of the matches. And at the 2017 CT it was Bumrah, B Kumar, Ashwin, Jadeja and Pandya.

    So they’ll be willing to go down both routes when playing in England.

    Not sure if selectors will look at the form of players in IPL to select for World Cup! It would have been so nice if the IPL was postponed this time to October (Would have served both the General Elections and World Cup well...)

    If India is serious in winning then they should keep Jadeja away from the eleven. He is one of the biggest bottlers and I have always seen him failing in pressure situations on a big stage with both ball and bat.

    Hopefully Shaw has a stellar IPL and makes the selectors think about him. I am surprised he is not given a chance in the ODI's yet. Many questioned his ability to play Test cricket as e is too young and he scored a century on debut.

    It won't solve any problem, shaw is an opener we need a middle order batsman.

    No need to play both Shankar and Pandya. Team management should pick the in form Shankar and choose a specialist batsman at 4. This is a world cup not kitply cup. We shouldn't select bits and pieces, highly overhyped, overrated and inconsistent players.

    If team management still want to play Pandya then he should be given 2-3 games just to give Vijay Shankar some rest before important games.

    Chances of him being selected are bleak after average performance in the last series .
    This coupled with dhoni mafias hate driven propaganda will ensure pants exit from the team.
    So i am just being realistic.
    He's already a permanent member of test team, so no worries.

    It's pant vs karthik imo for the backup wk batsman spot in the squad. So this ipl is hugely important for both of them.

    That is because there is no one to compete with his spot in the test team. His keeping alone will cost India lots of test matches in India.

    If we play this team in every match we are not going to reach the final. Our backup players have to be as strong as the ones in the playing XI.

    Rishabh pant has been preferred over saha,karthik and parthiv.

    Starting to agree with those who think Jadeja should be left at home. It’s probably best to take another pacer instead- going in with only Shami/Bhuvi/Bumrah as your full time pace bowlers is risky.

    Kohli
    Shankar
    Dhoni
    Jhadhav
    H Pandya
    Bhuvi
    Kuldeep

    The 4 reserves
    1. Opener - KL Rahul
    2. MO and WK - Pant
    3. Pacer - Shami
    4. Another Pacer or another spin AR - Khaleel/K Pandya/Jadeja

    The selectors are likely to go with Rayudu in place of KL Rahul (and even play him at 4). Jadeja will likely be picked as the Spin AR.

    Everyone's darling Hardik Pandya is in most fans playing XI because he can hit those big sixes, he can take wickets with his super phaast bowling and he can make a difference with his presence. No one wants to talk about his consistency and playing those innings when it matters the most.

    To sum it up, he is gareebon ka Afridi. He will never live upto fans expectations and will waste whatever talent he has just like Umar Akmal. Relying too much on him will cost India some important matches in the world cup. Won't be surprised to see the same fans who want him in the team now abusing him during the world cup.

    Saini is too raw and Mayank can't be chosen for WC based on Test performances (plus he is an opener). Shaw cannot be chosen over Dhawan despite not having played an LOI. Though I do believe that players such as Mayank, Shaw, Pant and Gill should have been given more chances after IPL 2018 in the LOI squad.

    If they had been given the same chances, I am confident that Pant would have refined his game for LOIs and would have overtaken Dhoni. I am also confident that one of Shaw and Gill would have come good as well.

    Despite the game being in England, I think we should go with KulCha. In 2013 CT, spin played a big role, and could again play the same role. If it doesnt, then we could go with 2 seamers (Shami/Bhuvi & Bumrah), 1 spinner (Kuldeep), 2 pace all rounders (Shankar and Pandya), and 2 spin all rounders (Jhadhav + Krunal Pandya).

    Playing 3 specialist pacers + 1 specialist spinner + 2 pace ARs will be an overkill. Replacing 1 pacer with someone like Krunal Pandya at 8 could bolster our weak middle order.

    I would replace Rayudu with Pant for the MO (and backup WK). And the 15th player would be a spin AR like Krunal Pandya, in case we dont need to play 2 spinners in the same match.

    Rayudu losing form at the wrong time - have a feeling he'll miss out on the final 15.

    The selectors should take a gamble and take someone like Shaw or Iyer instead.

    If I was MSK Prasad (chief selector)...I would close my eyes, keep calm and select Navdeep Saini. This dude is tall and with sheer pace bowling at 145 consistently. He can be deadly in England if given a chance. But knowing our selectors.. they wont take him and select CSK quota Deepak Chahar (trundler) as 4th bowling option.

    Deepak in England may not be bad idea but i agree just throw in Saini as gamble surprise factor. May backfire but then thats why it is a gamble

    India should do what Sri Lanka are doing and take extra players - sure you can only register 15 players but if someone is injured you can swap them with another from outside the 15. And, much like substitute fielders, teams always lie about players being injured just so they can make a tactical swap.

    Thank god you are not MSK Prasad. And yeah nobody has ever played sheer pace of 145k+ in England before. So selecting him on the basis of pace alone is very clever.

    What is it anyway? World Cup or Nalasopara T20 League?

    What is it anyway? World Cup or Nalasopara T20 League?
    Nalasopara T20 League would be your field of expertise isnt it? But who are we to ask?

    More or less Indian squad almost picks themselves - may be 1/2 surprises but quite solid squad. Their top 5-6 players will make any team in world and that's what matters, rest 5-6 players are mainly support staff - changing 1-2 personal doesn't matter.

    2. Dhawan
    3. *Kohli
    4. ATR
    5. MSD+
    6. Pant/Kedar
    7. HPandeya
    8. BK/Jadeja

    It's for specialist No. 4. I think, ATR is a proper middle order batsman who can build innings from No. 4; Shankar is more of a batting all-rounder, good for No. 6-7. I think, Shankar should fight it out with Pandeya while ATR should keep KL or Shaw out of playing XI.

    You are right. Only one out of Shankar or Pandya should play. Shankar has done well in whatever chances he got whereas Pandya is very inconsistent.

    Shankar better batter than Pandya, in fact he is better batter than all no 4's we have tried but he is total liability with ball. If he plays he can't be played as an all rounder.
