Twitter War ensues soon after India announces ICC World Cup Squad, Mark your Calendars cause Match dates are Out! April 16, 2019Leave a comment

As usual, Twitter is torn between opinions after the release of the Squad playing for Team India in ICC World Cup 2019. While some are completely okay with the list of players announced, others are questioning their efficiency.

The MSK Prasad-led Senior Selection Committee of the BCCI, picked up Dinesh Karthik over Rishabh Pant and named Rohit Sharma as Virat Kohli’s deputy in the upcoming tournament. Similarly, KL Rahul was chosen as the back-up opener for Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma.

The squad has some predictable names, however, authorities leaving out Ambati Rayudu have hurt the sentiments of some fans. Rayudu has been replaced by KL Rahul.

On a similar note, authorities leaving out Rishabh Pant from the squad have left fans wondering if the selectors have taken a step forward and two steps backward. But, some are justifying this move as Dhoni is a better choice for wicket keeper apart from being a far more experienced player. If one had to choose between the two players, Dhoni would undoubtedly be the first choice.


After the announcement of the squad, Twitter is now flooded with opinions from fans and fellow cricketers alike. Check out some of the comments and posts on twitter:
