Manjrekar and Chopra name their India WC 2019 squad
Indian selection committee must have got some idea about choosing the right bunch of Indian players for the marquee event and will announce the national squad for the World Cup today. However, the former Indian cricketers have already picked their squad for the mega event to be held in England, starting May 30.
Former batsmen Sanjay Manjrekar and Aakash Chopra took to their respective Twitter handles to share their expected 15-member squad. Ambati Rayudu, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant are the ones who have convinced both Manjrekar and Chopra.
Aakash Chopra wrote: ‘Pick 4 seamers. England. Rayudu over anyone who ‘might’ be successful. Pant over Shankar—latter isn’t bowling so went for the better striker.’

Pick 4 seamers. It’s England.
Rayudu over anyone who ‘might’ be successful

Previously on Saturday, Virender Sehwag, who has played in three World Cups for India, picked his own squad for the mega event.
“My Team India for the 2019 World Cup. 7 players from the 2015 team, 8 replacements,” Sehwag captioned the list tweeted.
