Rishabh Pant's Exclusion From Squad is One of the Most Talked About Aspects
Jadeja and Vijay Shankar both make the cut as I thought. Overall, very balanced side. Must feel for Pant though. Lost out marginally. But also lesson for him to improve his wk skills https://t.co/7Hqz0XSMLe

Dinesh Karthik's Inclusion in the Squad Was Lauded
It's nice of @BCCI to go with @DineshKarthik. The Guy averages more than 50+ in the last year or 2. Hope he plays a finisher's role with @msdhoni slotting himself at 4 or 5. #CWC19 #WorldCup2019 #TeamIndia
