Breaking: India’s World Cup team finalised, Sanju Samson misses out

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) senior national selection committee on late Saturday night picked the 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC ODI World Cup with KL Rahul finding a place in the team as Sanju Samson missed out.

The selection committee chairman Ajit Agarkar flew to Sri Lanka where he met Indian captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid and picked the squad. The meeting took place after the India vs Pakistan Asia Cup game in Kandy which was washed out after the first innings.

Along with Samson, Tilak Varma and Prasidh Krishna, who are in Sri Lanka at the moment for the aforementioned Asia Cup, also didn’t find a place in the World Cup squad.

The team will be led by Rohit Sharma and after his great showing with the bat in the middle-order, Ishan Kishan has also found a place in the squad.

Apart from captain Sharma, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav will be spearheading India’s batting line-up in the multi-nation tournament.

Allrounders Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel and Shardul Thakur also made it to the squad as the selection committee and team management gave emphasis on batting depth.

In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj will be leading the pace attack while spinner Kuldeep Yadav also made it into the squad.
