Virat's thinking that believes in performance in 50-odd matches for the World Cup
There is no shortcut in front of the display to create space in the team
Even before the ODI series against Australia, Indian captain Virat Kohli had made it clear that the performance or form of any player in the IPL would not affect the World Cup team selection. IPL has played an important role in refining the players and preparing them for the international level. However, there is something else about the Indian captain's point of view. Kohli said that the players for the World Cup will be selected on the basis of performance in 50-over matches, not on the basis of 20-20. When it comes to playing in the biggest tournament of cricket, this thinking is okay.
Going to Kohli's point of view, then KL Rahul, who has been the best performer in the T20 series against Australia, can not be confident about his place in the World Cup team. Now they have to work harder. Well, the series against Australia is going to be very important for some Indian players to make a place in the World Cup team.
Selectors selected different teams for the series
Apart from performance, there is no shortcut to make the place in the team. In order to give maximum chance to the players in the series, the selectors have chosen a different team from the first two ODIs. Separate for the rest of the three ODIs. However, there are some players who are not in both of these teams. Dinesh Karthik and Umesh Yadav have been with the team for quite some time and have performed well on many occasions.
The 11 or 12 name for the World Cup team is almost fixed
Apart from these, Mohammad Siraj and Khalil Ahmed are also optimistic. Both have got many chances in the last few months. If any injuries are left out, then 11 or 12 players of the World Cup team are almost certain. Because of this, selectors and team management will be relieved on one side, while deep meditation on the rest of the places.
In the top order, there is also Rahul, Karthik Pant.
For example – if you need a batsman in the top order then who will choose Rahul, Karthik and Pant? Apart from these, what will be the status of Rahane's claim? That too, when Rahane recently expressed his desire to play the World Cup and his record was also good in England's circumstances.
Jadeja too claims strong
Similarly, Ravindra Jadeja's claim can not be dismissed even after the recent successes of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuswendra Chahal. For these reasons, the series from Australia is important for some players. If they fail to perform effectively then the viewers in the World Cup will remain the same.
