Twitter divided after Rishabh Pant misses out on India’s World Cup squad

Finishing the matches under pressure has come as a benefit to Dinesh Karthik.

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. He will probably be the number four batsman, which had been another gap in the 15-member squad. Vijay Shankar also found himself in the squad and will most certainly occupy the hyped No. 4 slot.

Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Vijay Shankar, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami.

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

The Taliban, who frequently exaggerate numbers, claimed to have killed or wounded "more than 200 soldiers, police and militias". It shows "the enemy still seeks to attain its malicious objectives through the use of force", the Taliban said.

"We were all in unison that either Pant or DK will come in only when Mahi is injured".

Indian selectors will announce the team for the World Cup on Monday.

"We went ahead with Karthik because of his experience in big matches".

"We have been planning soon after the completion of the Champions Trophy (2017) for this".

Powell was Trump's choice to lead the Fed, but the president has been critical of him for raising interest rates. Moore and Cain would likely be similarly beholden to Trump. "Growth does not cause inflation", he said.

Speaking over Shankar's inclusion, Prasad said that the 26-year-old all-rounder from Tamil Nadu gives "three dimensions" to the team.

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.

"And in the second part of the tournament, when the wickets will be more dry, we felt Jadeja will be handy". Dinesh Karthik was picked in the team which seems to be a correct call at the moment.

As expected, the pace trio of Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah made it to the squad and there were no surprises in that aspect.

Global crude output falls in March '19
There is worldwide shortage in the oil market due to the interventions in production by the oil cartel OPEC. That is down 9.4 percent from 10.23 million bpd in February as state-owned refiners began maintenance.

Another possible headache for the selectors could be whether to settle for a third spinner in form of Ravindra Jadeja or the fourth pacer.
