ICC World Cup 2019 Team India Cricket Squad Announced

ICC World Cup 2019 Team India Squad Announcement: Dinesh Karthik, Vijay Shankar included; Pant misses out

BRIEF INTRODUCTION :

Cricket is a bat and ball, team game and is influenced by the British such as Australia, New Zealand, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, and West Indian nations. Cricket is played between two teams of 11 players on a grassy field about 122 to 152 m. One complete run through both teams’ batting orders is an inning, and games or matches, comprise one or two innings. A single match may be several hours to several hours.

The 2019 ICC World Cup i is the 12th edition of the Cricket World Cup, scheduled to be hosted by England and Wales, from 30 May to 14 July 2019. All 10 teams are required to submit a 15-member squad by 23 April, with changes to the squad allowed to be made up to 22 May.

The 2015 Cricket World Cup (officially known as ICC Cricket World Cup 2015) was the 11th Cricket World Cup, jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand from 14 February to 29 March 2015. Australia defeated New Zealand by 7 wickets to win their fifth ICC Cricket World Cup.

The 2015 Cricket World Cup is estimated to have been watched by over 1.5 billion people. The BCCI Selection Committee, along with India captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri, met in Mumbai to select India’s 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC World Cup to be played in England and Wales.

The formats for the tournament will be a single group of ten teams, with each team playing the other nine teams, and the top four teams progressing to a knockout stage of semi-finals and a final. The ten team tournament has gained criticism due to the lack of Associate teams in the tournament. Given the increase of the Test playing nations from 10 to 12, with the admission of Ireland and Afganistan in June 2017, it will be the first World Cup to be contested without all of the Test playing nations being present,and after the elimination of all the Associate teams at the qualifying tournaments, this will also be the first World Cup to feature no Associate members.

Following the, 2019 Pulwama attack, several former Indian players and the  Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) called for the boycott of the group match fixture between India and Pakistan, wanting to ban the Pakistan cricket team from playing in the tournament. However, after conducting a press meet in Dubai, the (ICC) rejected the BCCI’s statement regarding banning Pakistan from the World Cup and assured that the scheduled match will go ahead as planned despite the ongoing standoff between the two nations.

The deadline to announce the squad for the World Cup is 23 April as set by ICC but BCCI has opted to declare the team much ahead of the final date of submission.
