Rishabh Pant left out of India squad

We all were in unison that either pant or DK will come in only when Mahi [Mahendra Singh Dhoni] is injured.

England captain Eoin Morgan feels Pakistan are one of the strongest contenders for the upcoming ICC Men s Cricket World Cup 2019 that starts on 30 May.

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.

However, Karthik, 33, was left out of the home series against Australia, India's final dress rehearsal for the World Cup, which could signal a slide down the pecking order.

Experts maintain that the selectors will have to brainstorm a lot over the selection of the second wicketkeeper as both Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik are worthy candidates for this slot. We are looking at Vijay Shankar as a No. 4.

"We went ahead with Karthik because of his experience in big matches".

"What Vijay Shankar offers is three dimensional", Prasad said. "After the (2017) Champions Trophy, we tried quite a few people in that position".

But there was no debate on KL Rahul's inclusion and he is set to be the third opener or a potential middle-order floater alongside Shankar. We also have Dinesh Karthik and Kedar Jadhav. Shikhar Dhawan will open the innings with Rohit while Ravindra Jadeja can come into the equation during the latter stages of the tournament.

The bowlers will be assisted by the wrist-spinning duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal while Kedar Jadhav is expected to roll his arm if required.

"Over the four years we've been together, we have had so many guys who have contributed to the position we find ourselves", Morgan reflected.

The pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah have also been included in the squad. They will bowl in the nets and also stay as a standby should there be an injury.

However, Prasad said that Navdeep Saini and Khaleel Ahmed's names were discussed.
