With the Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the undisputed first choice wicket keeper of the side, the selectors preferred Karthik in their 15 man squad over Pant who is known for Swashbuckling batting. Dinesh Karthik’s experience and composure in the pressure situations helped him pip young sensation Risabh Pant to the second wicket keeper’s spot in India’s World Cup Squad says, Captain Virat Kohli.
Teams can change players until May 23 and several former players believe India will miss the 21-year-old showpiece which gets underway on May 30th. In the pressure situations, he has shown his own composure said Virat Kohli about Dinesh Karthik. it was something that every one of the board was convinced he added.
He has the experience if god forbid something happens to Mahendra Singh Dhoni Dinesh Karthik can be immensely valuable behind the wickets and as a finisher, he has done well he added.so it was the total consideration and overall exposure of the tournament of this magnitude that was taken into the primary consideration.
Dinesh Karthik made his one day debut in 2004 and has played 91 matches for India in the format, and shown the ability to bat anywhere in batting order and we can really imagine until there is more than an opinion in the place that some capable guys have missed out says India Coach Ravi Shastri adding that picking 15 men squad from the very talented players was not an easy task and be prepared for the tournament.
Unlike the India of the past, the 1983 and 2011 winners have also boasted a very potent pace attack led by the top-ranked ODI bowler Jasprit Bumrah. The death overs specialist will be aided by the Mohammad Shami and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar with both known for their ability to swing the ball both the ways something which would be handy in conditions.
The one common factor binding these guy is confidence says Virat Kohli and they all believe that they can be best. There is no set rule for anything like Indian spinners to be the best in the world the best batsmen and whatever he added. The things are if you believe it you can achieve it he said.
