Vijayalakshmi wants Rahul in India's 2019 World Cup squad

Could K. L. Rahul be picked as the third opener or as a No. 4 batsman in India's World Cup 2019 squad?

Will K. L. Rahul's excellent IPL form put him in India's World Cup squad?   -  VIVEK BENDRE

After scoring a century against Mumbai Indians, K. L. Rahul deserves to be in India's 2019 World Cup squad. Ambati Rayudu isn't in good form but should be picked as he provides balance in the middle-order. 

I would pick Kedar Jadhav for his bowling and his match-winning ability with the bat as he proved against Australia in Hyderabad.

Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah automatically select themselves with Hardik Pandya as the all-rounder. Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal are Virat Kohli's favourites and will play a key role in the World Cup. 

I hope Rishabh Pant gets picked in the squad and it would be nice if he plays a game. But M. S. Dhoni will be my 'keeper as he is still the best and acts as an advisor to Kohli. 

I and my family will be cheering from Bhilai and we are confident of India winning the World Cup.
