ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 Team Squads

2019 ICC World Cup Teams

The 2019 World Cup will have 10 teams featuring in the competition that will played in the UK and you can find all the World Cup squads for this tournament below.

A changed format has left the World Cup with just 10 sides this competition, dropping down from the 14 that were on display in the previous two World Cups. According to the World Cup schedule, these 10 teams will play each other once in a round-robin league format, making it 45 games during that phase. Two semi-finals and a final will follow the league stage.

Eight of these World Cup squads got a direct entry into the main competition while 10 other sides were involved in a Qualifier with two teams joining the others in the tournament.

According to previous World Cup editions, teams are expected to announce a 30-man probables squad a couple of months in advance and then select their final 15 from these 30 going into the World Cup. What this means is that around the 10 squads will be announced around March-April 2019. Interesting to note here that given the tournament will be slightly longer for all teams involved, there could be a chance that the ICC might allow squads to be 16-man strong.

What we can do here is to give you a probable set of players each of these 10 teams could go into the World Cup with. Please remember this is more than six months from the start of the 2019 World Cup, which means each of the 10 squads could see chunk of changes before the actual start of the competition.

Sarfaraz Ahmed will lead the Pakistan squad for the 2019 World Cup while India’s squad for the tournament can be expected to be led by Virat Kohli. The Sri Lanka squad hasn’t got too much clarity given how often their captains have changed while Shakib al Hasan will hope the Bangladesh squad is well-captained.

In the recently-played Asia Cup, India had gone on to beat Bangladesh in the final while Pakistan struggled to get going, losing to India (twice) and Bangladesh in the second round to crash out of the tournament early.

The teams of qualifiers Afghanistan and West Indies shouldn’t have an issue in naming Asghar Stanikzai and Jason Holder respectively as their skippers while England will take Eoin Morgan as the captain of their squad for their home World Cup.

Kane Williamson has captained the New Zealand team well in the lead-up to the tournament and there’s no need for a change there while South Africa’s captaincy will be given to Faf du Plessis now that AB de Villiers has retired.

The only issue with the captaincy could be down to the Australian squad that will be without Steven Smith and David Warner till very nearly the start of the World Cup. Do Australia give Smith the responsibility of leading the Aussie team or will it be someone like an Aaron Finch or Tim Paine doing that? We will know soon enough closer to the start of the 2019 World Cup.

    As per the team balance & conditions in England, my 15 member squad for Indian Cricket would be


    Rohit Sharma

    Shikhar Dhawan

    At No.3, I would prefer KL Rahul with the sublime form he is in (can also keep wickets, if required) &

    Virat Kohli at 4 (for middle order stability along with)

    MS Dhoni at 5

    Kedar Jadhav at 6 (all rounder & finisher role)

    If going with 3 pacers & 2 spinners, then

    Bhuvaneshvar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah & Khaleel Ahmed (left arm variety) with spin twin Kuldeep Yadav & Yuzvendra Chahal

    If going with 4 pacers & 1 spinner, then

    Bhuvaneshvar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Khaleel Ahmed, Mohammad Shami (4th seemer) & Kuldeep Yadav

    Specialist 12th man – Manish Pandey (super yo-yo athlete)

    That makes 13 members

    2 trump card, who can fit in all 3 department

    Hardik Pandya (pace all rounder) & Ravindra Jadeja (spin all rounder)

    Final Squad:

    Virat Kohli (c)

    Rohit Sharma (vc)

    Shikhar Dhawan

    KL Rahul (wk)

    MS Dhoni (wk)

    Kedar Jadhav

    Manish Pandey

    Hardik Pandya

    Ravindra Jadeja

    Kuldeep Yadav

    Yuzvendra Chahal

    Bhuvaneshvar Kumar

    Jasprit Bumrah

    Khaleel Ahmed

    Mohammad Shami

    Imam ul haq should not in squad if Pakistan wanted to win World cup. There are lot of players in Pakistan who plays better than him like Hussain Talat, Asif Ali, Sahibzada Farhan etc.

    • Wadood gohar Aug 6, 2018, 2:13 am

      No ! Imamul haq is the beauty of pakistan . But hasan talat is also the best all_rounder of pakistan . So talat can take part in 2019 wc.
