Team India will go to England for the ICC cricket world cup 2019 on May 22. Before the world cup, India will play two world cup warm-up matches against New Zealand and Bangladesh. World cup 2019 will start from May 30. The opening encounter of world cup 2019 will play between South Africa and Host England. Team India will start their world cup campaign from June 5 against South Africa.
Earlier we have reported that Kedar Jadav Injured and he could not play in IPL 2019 playoffs matches for Chennai Super Kings due to injury. Kedar is also a part of India’s World Cup 2019 Squad.
In a recent Interview with CricketNext, Indian coach Ravi Shastri opens up on Jadhav’s fitness. He said, “It doesn’t worry me at all. In fact, I am totally blanked out from that. When the flight takes off on the 22nd, we will see who are the 15 on that. Yeah? And just take it from there…I don’t think there’s anything to resolve. It’s just soaking in the atmosphere, believing in the combinations that we will plan and decide to go into those practice games as a lead up to the World Cup and believe in that.”
“For me, we are a flexible team. It’s horses for courses; we have got enough ammunition there, enough players who can bat at 4. So, I am not worried about that…I think we have got all the bases covered, really. The last thing you want is passengers on tour. You want to have in those 15 players a player who can play anytime, at any given time. He shouldn’t be in the 15 and could be called upon only if there is an injury,” Ravi Shastri added.
Maybe, Ambati Rayudu and Axr Patel is the backup of Kedar Jadhav for the world cup 2019 if kedar cannot fully fit.
