The BCCI has announced 15-man squad for World Cup 2019. Ambati Rayudu and Rishabh Pant miss out as Dinesh Karthik and Vijay Shankar make the cut. Karthik and Vijay Shankar's inclusion was a surprise and people on Twitter expressed their displeasure on the same as they expected Pant in the squad.
Sir Aakash Chopra! We can't agree more!
Wasn’t Pant elevated to the top tier of the Central Contracts a few weeks back?? Not a certainty in two of the three formats. 😐🤨— Aakash Chopra (@cricketaakash) April 15, 2019
Shami and Jadeja have fought their way back!
6 mnths back, Mohammad Shami was nowhere near being considered for white ball cricket, but some outstanding performances has ensured he plays his 2nd World Cup. Him & Jadeja have fought their way back in .There will be few disappointed players but best wishes to Team India #CWC19 pic.twitter.com/tqjm2nAwAM— Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) April 15, 2019
Maybe DK's experience!
Karthik over Pant is defensive thinking IMO. If Pant is first choice wk for Tests, what reduces his ability for ODIs?— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) April 15, 2019
Fans are satisfied!
@BCCI good selection, all players are deserving to be in 15.— Dr. Manjunath Kounte (@MRKounte) April 15, 2019
Hard Luck to @RishabPant777, he will get his chances in the future, who knows it may be for #CWC19 itself.
All the Best for #TeamIndia for @ICC #CWC19 #MenInBlue https://t.co/uaPriqJqQ6
Pant has to wait for four more years!
WC is not a place to experiment...Pant's time will definitely come in the future#CWC19— Sivaram G (@sivaramkrish13) April 15, 2019
Questions on Vijay Shankar's selection!!
Not pessimistic, but this is heights of inconsistency.— Yashvardhan Chamaria (@Yashvardhan1989) April 15, 2019
You cant have a guy like Shankar playing at No. 4 who just doesn't have the experience to control the game.
Has to be Dhoni at No. 4 with this selection.#CWC19#WorldCup2019 #worldcupsquad #TeamIndia #BCCI #VijayShankar pic.twitter.com/R6X6DVPz1F
An extra all-rounder!
I m seeing @RishabPant777 In the place of @vijayshankar260 because you have already 2 all rounder in the squad (Hardik & Jadeja) , and what rishabh is done in cricket field is awsm!!#CWC19 @BCCI #WorldCup2019— Niranjan Jha (@imniranjan_jha) April 15, 2019
Vaughan wanted India to pick Pant!
No @RishabPant777 in the World Cup Squad ... India must be bonkers !!!!!— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) April 15, 2019
They can't keep everyone happy!
It’s impossible to keep everyone happy with team selections but Karthik inclusion surprising. Selectors guilty of showing no consistency in his case. Discarded after Jan 2019 to select straight for the WC. Shankar is a lucky man to make it. #CricketLive #StarSports— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) April 15, 2019
This squad isn't too bad!
Still feel that India could have gone with a fourth seamer but having said that getting 14/15 right isn't too bad #CWC19— Hemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) April 15, 2019
So much discussion for Dhoni's back-up!
Heartbreak for Pant. Karthik gets nod because of better keeping skills, just in case MSD is injured before a crucial match— Cricketwallah (@cricketwallah) April 15, 2019
Rishab pant alone equals to Dhoni + Kartik +Jadeja #WorldCup2019— UmarFarukh (@itssUmarFarukh) April 15, 2019
What a moment for Karthik!
33 year old Dinesh karthik makes a comeback to the world cup squad after missing out on two previous editions. Never give up on your dreams. #CWC19 #WorldCup2019 #BleedBlue #TeamIndia #worldcupsquad #karthik pic.twitter.com/bXbQtSgNMb— Vineet Kumar (@vineet498) April 15, 2019
To make India's fielding look better!
Why jadeja in wc squad we already have kuldeep, chahal ,kedar as spiner nd WC is in England where we will get pace bowling condition, nd we already hav gd attack.. Why not pant instead of jadeja #ICCworldcup2019 #worldcup2019 @vikrantgupta73— Shubham Thakran (@Shubham_thakran) April 15, 2019
Hard luck for Rayudu!
DK over Rishabh Pant is the most sensible selection @BCCI has done in recent days ..! Class prevailed over Fantasy ! Feel bad for Rayudu though ..! Hope this team wins the worldcup ..! 👍🏻#CWC19 #WorldCup2019 #TeamIndia #IndiaSquad— karthick anjee (@dranjee) April 15, 2019
This is hilarious!
