Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya, still recovering from the injuries picked up during the recently concluded Asia Cup, were ruled out while pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar were rested, taking into account their recent workload.
India will have to wait for the return of Hardik Pandya, who suffered a lower back injury during the Asia Cup in the UAE and had to be stretchered out. "I have been telling this for a quite some time that we are just 18 ODIs away from now before we play first game of the World Cup and so we need to figure out our fast bowlers and so we have picked Shami", said Prasad. He had played all five Tests in England and the first one against West Indies in Rajkot, after being hampered with injury issues in the first half of the year.
Karthik had played all six matches in the Asia Cup and scored 146 runs at an average of 48.66 but a strike rate of 71.21, only higher than MS Dhoni's (62.09) among Indian batsmen who batted at least twice in the tournament. However, 33-year-old Dinesh Karthik, who failed to capitalise his opportunity in the Asia Cup, misses out. In their place are Mohammed Shami, Khaleel Ahmed and Shardul Thakur form India's bowling department. In search of second wicketkeeper, we have given opportunities to DK and right now we are giving an opportunity to Rishabh Pant. Thanks to his brilliant performances in Tests, Ravindra Jadeja is all set to make a comeback in the ODI squad.
