Putting an end to months of debate and speculation, the MSK Prasad-led selection committee on Monday announced the Indian squad for the ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales that begins on May 30.

MK Prasad said, "Under pressure, we have seen @DineshKarthik finish matches for @BCCI".

India captain Kohli's pre-IPL statement that the cash-rich league will have no effect on the selections proved to be prophetic as Pant's 245 runs in the T20 showpiece fell short of Karthik's 111 runs.

Tamil Nadu all-rounder Vijay Shankar made it for his "three-dimensional" qualities.

Editorial team of CricketCountry. Virat Kohli will captain the team while Rohit Sharma will be his deputy.

Here India's World Cup squad: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal.

"It is definitely a case which we have debated at length".

"The second wicketkeeper comes into play only if Mahi (Mahendra Singh Dhoni) is injured. That's the reason we went with Dinesh Karthik", he said.

"We have been planning soon after the completion of the Champions Trophy (2017) for this". We did give a few more chances to Rayudu.

K.L. Rahul, who has been included as the reserve opener, can bat in the middle order too, if the team management needs, stated the BCCI chief selector. Vijay Shankar is three dimensional. "We are looking at him as number four".

Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the back-up pacer and Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami are expected to start in all the big games, fitness permitting. Dinesh Karthik was picked in the team which seems to be a correct call at the moment.

England, ranked No.1 on the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Team rankings, have been widely touted as favourites for the mega-event.
