Finishing the matches under pressure has come as a benefit to Dinesh Karthik. The side, expectedly led by Virat kohli, comprises five specialist batsmen, two wicket-keepers, three fast bowlers, three all-rounders and two specialist spinners. A 15 member squad was announced a little while ago.

Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are the all-rounders in the team.

BCCI tweeted the list of 15 players and they include: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma (VC), Shikhar Dhawan, Vijay Shankar, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, and Mohammed Shami.

"It is definitely a case which we have debated at length".

Karthik, the oldest Indian player in terms of global debut (three months before Mahendra Singh Dhoni in September 2004), was also part of the Indian squad during its disastrous 2007 World Cup campaign.

Pant is also angling for a back-up role, behind the stumps, with Mahendra Singh Dhoni installed as India's first choice wicket-keeper.




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. But the selectors went for the experience ahead of the exuberance of youth. "After the (2017) Champions Trophy, we tried quite a few people in that position".

"What Vijay Shankar offers is three dimensional", Prasad said. KL Rahul has also been included.

"We are more or less sorted", Kohli said. Dinesh Karthik was picked in the team which seems to be a correct call at the moment. They will bowl in the nets and also stay as a standby should there be an injury.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the back-up pacer and Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami are expected to start in all the big games, fitness permitting.

England, ranked No.1 on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team rankings, have been widely touted as favourites for the mega-event.
