PCB conducts players' fitness tests for World Cup 2019

India announced their 15-man World Cup squad on Monday.

All five selectors will be present during the meeting, which will also be attended by coach Ravi Shastri, captain Virat Kohli and interim secretary of BCCI Amitabh Chaudhary.

Vijay Shankar who only came in the frame, with Hardik Pandya involving himself in trouble with KWK show, during the Australia tour will most probably bat at that position.

The Indian team squad announcement for the cricket world cup 2019 will broadcast on Monday, April 15, 2019, from 3:30 pm onwards.

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

It goes without saying that Virat Kohli will lead the side and Rohit Sharma will be his deputy.

"It is definitely a case which we have debated at length. That's the reason we went with Dinesh Karthik", he said.

Podesta's work for the Ukrainian government came to light in 2017 after Mueller's team charged Manafort with lobbying violations. The case is part of a foreign lobbying investigation spun off from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe.

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

K.L. Rahul, who has been included as the reserve opener, can bat in the middle order too, if the team management needs, stated the BCCI chief selector.

As reported by PTI earlier, Prasad confirmed that Shankar is being seen as a potential number four candidate along with Rahul and Kedar Jadhav. Karthik was also a part of India's Champions Trophy winning squad in England in 2013 apart from being a member of India's touring Test squads in England in 2007 and 2018.

"In the last one and half years, it is these two wristies (wrist spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav), who have won us the games but there might be situations where, you require an additional all-rounder in the playing 11, (this is) where Jadeja comes in", Prasad explained.

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

"We are more or less sorted", Kohli said.
