The Indian cricket team for the upcoming World Cup in England and Wales will be announced on 15 April in Mumbai. The wise men of selection committee will also take IPL's performance into consideration before finalizing the squad for the mega event.
The committee will have to fill up the number 4 position, which has become a bone of contention in the recent times. Also the position of an all-rounder and the number of spinners to be included in the team are the other two areas that need attention.
Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma has already stated that Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli’s inputs will play a vital role in selection of the players.
“I think we are pretty much settled. There are a few spots (undecided) which everyone knows about but again that depends on what the captain and the coach and the selectors think whether they want to go for the extra seamer or the extra spinner or extra middle order player or a reserve opener.
“It also depends upon the conditions. The last time we were in England, the conditions were quite dry. I don’t know how things will be. So if it is like that than you take an extra spinner, as simple as that. If it’s not then probably take the extra seamer,” he said in Mumbai.
