The 10 teams who have been qualified for the WC include Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Srilanka, and West Indies.
England and Wales will host the World Cup for the year 2019 who have not yet clinched even a single WC title. The games are scheduled to take place from May 30, 2019, to June 14, 2019. The country will be hosting the event for the fifth time where the inaugural match will be played in the Oval and the Final match will be in Lord’s stadium. The selectors of each team will be keen in choosing the capable players to the WC for their respective teams.
Each and every team qualified to play for 2019 WC will be on their ultimate groundwork mode to keep them prepared for the upcoming big event. Spinners, in modern era cricket, play a decisive role in winning as big a tournament like the World cup. Currently, all the Asian cricket teams include spinners in all the three cricket formats of the game and rightly so. In this segment, let’s look at the probable spinners who can make it to 2019 WC to the Indian team:
Jadeja, the Jaddu of the Indian cricket team is an experienced slow left-arm orthodox bowler and left-hand batsman. Usually, the left-hand bowlers will make it tough for the batsmen to play freely. He is also an exceptional all-rounder at present for the team. He had shown his talent in all the formats of the game. So far, out of 151 ODI matches played by him, he took 174 wickets with an average of 35.89 and an economy of 4.88 and this also includes seven 4 wickets haul. Being a quick and terrific fielder who has the capability to throw the ball to hit the stumps perfectly with a decent bowling attack can undoubtedly show outstanding performance in the WC 2019.
Kuldeep Yadav, the first Indian “Chinaman” bowler is a left-arm bowler. Chinaman is a conventional bowling technique where the bowler uses his wrist to cause wickets rather than his fingers. The bowler ever since 2017 had made it difficult for the opposite team batsmen to score runs. So, the selectors will opt to choose him for the WC 2019. He will surely continue to be a troublemaker for the batsmen in the England grounds. His records include 87 wickets in just 44 ODIs with an economy of 4.93 and an average of 21.74 which also involves four 4-wicket hauls. The opposite teams for sure will make strategies to handle the chinaman bowler.
The young right-arm leg spinner and the right-hand batsman is an equally equipped bowler against the opposing team in this current period. His unexpected googlies will be a trouble for the rest of the teams. On the pitches like England, Team India will tend to make the most of his skills. Out of 41 ODIs played by him so far, the wickets picked by him are 72 with an average of 24.61 and an economy of 4.89 which includes one 4-wicket haul. He has the intense possibilities to get selected for the WC 2019 and show-case his bowling attack.
The right-arm off-break bowler and the right-hand batsman who is often prone to injuries excel with his batting in the middle orders and a capable fielder as well. His skills and capabilities will obviously be judged by the selectors and have the maximum possibility to get into the team for the World Cup 2019. He is also emerging as an all-rounder contributing to the team both through bat and ball. So far, he has played 59 ODIs, of which he has eliminated 27 batsmen from the crease with an average of 34.70 at an economy of 5.15.
Yah, it’s Ravichandran Ashwin who still has a chance to get picked by the selectors if they have a preference for experience. No doubt, the right-arm offspinner, and right-hand batsmen can be a threat to the opposition if he gets his line and length appropriately. He is also an excellent all-rounder for the team who can provide the necessary partnership to the batsman when needed. His bowling averages include 150 wickets in 111 matches with an average of 25.44 and an economy of 2.84 with an excellent 1 time 4 wicket haul.
The day for the squad announcement is on April 23, 2019. As the team being one of the favorites for the World Cup 2019, the selectors will be opting for the right combinations in choosing the entire 15 member squad. Since the team has decent team performance in the recent games except for the Australian tournament; the players would have gained enough confidence and potential to carry it to the WC 2019.
The team must contribute their entire potential to bring the trophy back to the country. Opening partnerships will be a necessary one to score runs and so that it can be taken care of by the middle order batsmen further. When it comes to bowling, the bowlers are expected to restrict the opposition to post a low-total on the scoreboard. And finally, fielding is very essential for any team to save runs and take excellent catches in order to win matches.
