Only a few days before the selection of the 15-member Indian team (Team India) for the World Cup 2019 in England, the team is continuously discussing. Wherever there is criticism, somewhere the team is being told to be balanced. However, on Tuesday night, the selectors named themselves as three stand-by players. These three stand-outs were Rishabh Pant, Ambati Rayudu and Delhi's fast bowler Navdeep Saini. But now the board has added two more players to standby list. These two players are player Ishant Sharma and left arm spinner Akshar Patel.
We make clear that the first stadby player is Rishabh Pant. The phrase is that if any player of the Indian team is injured or withdraws the name for some other reason, then Rishabh Pant will be included in the team first. However, it is not absolutely sure and everything depends on the need for team management and the selectors. Now the recent Ishtash Sharma and Akshar Patel, both of whom are in the list, are playing for Delhi Capitals.
A BCCI official said that Ishant, Akshar, Raud and Saini have been told that they are on the list of standby (reserved) players. The board has told them that like Navdeep Saini, they will not go to England with the team. But they have been asked to be fully prepared. It was told that they should be fully prepared for mental and sports. And whenever needed, they will be sent to England.
On being inducted into the name of Ishant named stand-by player, the official said that this is a striker of India bowling in the Bowler Test, but he could not make it to the team in ODIs. Ishant is an experienced bowler and does not get experience in the market. Ishant's experience was given to him in the list of standby players. At the same time, he is a mature bowler and he understands what the team needs from him.
About the stand-by-players, the officer said that when we selected these players, we were looking at two batsmen, two pacer and one seamer. Every year the World Cup is going to be playing against each other. In such a long tournament, it is very important to take care of every aspect in the tournament.
