The build to the upcoming cricket world cup has allready started with less than four months left for cricket’s biggest extravaganza to begin in England and Wales. All the ten participating teams have allready started finalizing their 15-man squad for the event.
India led by Rohit Sharma is currently plying its trade in the ongoing T20 series against New Zealand but their middle order stability seems to be the real problem. The inclusion of Hardik Pandya after his controversial comments on the chat show Koffee with Karan, has brought the right balance to the team.
Former cricketers have allready started donning the hat of the predictors to announce the much hyped 15-man India squad for 2019 world cup.

Kaif feels that as much as 20 players are in contention for the world cup but 13 of them are the automatic entrants in the team. Two remaining slots will be filled by seven other in contention.
Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli will remain to be the compact option at the top order in his team. The Prayagraj man further added Ambati Rayudu in the team alongside MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav who will take the middle order slot.
Hardik Pandya will be the lone all-rounder in his team followed by the bowling attack which includes Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav will be the two lone spinners in the team.
“For the World Cup, barring an injury 13 players pick themselves- Rohit, Dhawan, Kohli, Rayudu, Dhoni, Karthik, Jadhav, Hardik, Bhuvi, Bumrah, Shami, Kuldeep, Chahal. And 2 of Rahul, Pant, Jadeja, Khaleel, Umesh, Shubman & I would say Vijay Shankar are in contention for the remaining slots,” Kaif tweeted.
