Pant should play in place of Dhoni else he has no place in side. We will need batsman who can bowl and kedar is doing job so i feel he will play.

Kedar is fine ,issue right now is guys like Rayudu and Karthik ,which seem to be above Rahul in the pecking order.

Also jadeja's bowling will be useless in England and he isnt a consistent big hitter,would rather have krunal but thats not happening I guess.

Jaddu will play above Kedar

If Jadhav bats decently averaging 30+ with 130 strike rate he will be our number 6.  

 

In England we need at least 4 pace bowlers.  So Pandya is more or less a lock. 

 

Kuldeep is a lock

Bumrah will be a lock

Khaleel, bhuvi and chahal will play musical chairs among themselves.

 

Top order - Rohit/Dhawan/Kohli locks.

 

DK as backup is a lock . 

Dhoni /Pant is open ended. Pant will come in if dhoni retires. He will not replace DK.

Rahul should be there too. 

 

Last 2 spots in 16 member squad will go-to jadeja and maybe siraj if he does great in Australia.

Jadeja was a superb bowler in England when we won the CT last time. And if the pitches are dry, he could be handful

A middle order of Rahul pant Pandya and Sundar is too unreliable.

You need kedar and dhoni/DK . Only one of Rahul/pant can play now .

Sundar batting I am not convinced. He is more like Bhuvi and Pandya batting these days is like number 8.

Middle order consisting of Rahul and Pant may seem unreliable because they have not been given ample and consistent opportunities. Youngsters are hardly getting any chances and TTF or over the hill players are getting selected by our management due to the so called "experience factor.

Its not like our current middle order is winning us matches. This is the weakest middle order that I have seen in a very long time. We are not gaining anything by playing them. They can't win matches for India if our top 3 fails and not able to score heavily in the end even after top 3 sets a good platform thats why our batting nowadays is only about top 3. You get them out and India lose. So I would rather lose with youngsters than oldies.

 

Sundar is very underrated batsman. I believe he has more potential as a batting all rounder but he is being used otherwise. He is in the team to complete the quota of 5th bowler along with Pandya.

I think they'd go with 4 Specialist pacers instead of 3 and pick just 2 spinners. Agree on the rest of the squad.

This should be the world cup squad

 

Playing XI

 

1. Rahul

2. Dhawan

3. Kohli

4. Rayudu

5. MSD

6. Jadhav

7. Jadeja

8. Chahar

9. Bhuvi

10. Kuldeep

11. Chahal

 

Back ups

 

Opener - Rohit

Middle order - Raina

All rounder - Hardik

Spinner - Ashwin

Fast bowler - Anyone

 

Overall, this is the best team India can field. Batting all the way to #9 with serious hitters in Chahar in there. Considering it's in England, there is absolutely no need for midget Chahal.

 

Jadeja + Chahar >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Chahal + Pandya

 

Jadeja is a way better batsman and fielder than Chahal and at wort equal in bowling.

Chahar is way better bowler than Pandya and almost equal in batting

 

Chahar can bowl 8-10 overs striaght up which gives you flexibility to use Bumrah and Bhuvi. Jadeja and Kudleep are banks and Jadhav a surplus like he should be. With Pandya there is no way you get 10 overs out of him

 

This XI gives us depth in batting, bowling and is filled iwth players who have winning mentality that is needed in major tournaments as seen in the recent Asia cup success

 

Bench

 

Raina is a big game player and so is Ashwin. Rohit is a flop against anyone that swings it a bit and English pitches will swing a bit so he can be on the bench.

You have got a good sense of humor.. no way Rohit is getting benched.

 

England odi pitches are pancakes . Zero swing. You require 350+ scores . Pandya is lock.

If Pandya is lock, our chances are slim. If Pandya played Asia cup, 100% India would have lost in the final. He is one of the most  over-rated players going around

Lets be realistic. We are playing limited overs cricket where we require more than specialist.

If we want any serious chance in world cup 19 then, Rohit, Kohli,Dhawan,Rahul, Pant, Kedhar All need to become a match winner with bat and give 3+ match changing(wicket taking) deliveries per match.

Right now, Kedhar can do Yuvi with ball, but nowhere close Yuvi with Bat.

 

Dhawan can do a GG but rest cannot even throw pies. Kohli should try wicket to wicket ball like Ganguli, KLR should try some spin in nets and get used to batting at 3 or 4.

 

Pant is just 20% close to Old Dhoni with gloves and also nowhere close to Dhoni with Bat. Too young to expect any cricketing brain input during match.

 

 

 If Smith/Warner is back in Ausiie side, Then I can say England, Australia,Bangladesh, South Africa and may be Pakistan, All of them have a chance to score over 300 against us simply because our bats cant do a Sehwag/Sachin/Yuvi with ball and we have no one like MSD to finish it off.

Our only saving grace is Our pacers and KD. They are miles ahead of our previous bowling attack
