Karthik over Pant: Sanjjeev K Samyal from Mumbai – “We discussed that Dinesh Karthik or Rishabh Pant will only play if MS Dhoni is injured, hence the keeping skills were considered,” Amitabh Choudhury said. Also, it was announced that four medium pacers will travel with the team apart from the 15.
Vijay Shankar at No. 4: “After the Champions Trophy, we tried quite a few people [at No.4]. We have a few more chances to Rayudu. What Vijay Shankar brings is three dimensional. We are looking at him at No. 4, to begin with.”
