MK Prasad said, "Under pressure, we have seen @DineshKarthik finish matches for @BCCI".

Prasad said that Vijay Shankar, an all-rounder, provides a "three-dimensional" option to Ambati Rayudu in the number 4 position.

Here India's World Cup squad: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Ravindra Jadeja, Vijay Shankar, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik (wk), Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal. Vijay Shankar is three dimensional. The debate for the number four was shut down finally with Ambati Rayudu being dropped for being inconsistent despite getting enough chances. Vijay Shankar also found himself in the squad and will most certainly occupy the hyped No. 4 slot. Hardik Pandya remains India's first choice all-rounder while wrist-spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are expected to share the slow bowling duties. Karthik was also a part of India's Champions Trophy winning squad in England in 2013 apart from being a member of India's touring Test squads in England in 2007 and 2018.
