Let's take it easy with the Tweet. All's not lost for anyone- https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/...w/68921146.cms

Looks like Pant, Rayudu and Saini are going to have an all-expense trip to UK if nobody gets injured. *touch-wood*

I have my reservations about Shankar batting at #4. He can certainly finish an innings when he comes in at 2/260 in the 40th over. Can he rebuild if the side has lost Kohli and is 2/15 in the 7th over? I think we're going to see Dhoni at #4 (DK also plays) or Kohli at #4 (with Rahul at #3.)

This post is not to demean Shankar, but to emphasize that the WC is not the tournament to bed in new players.

I read somewhere that Kohli and the team think tank haven't decided on Vijay Shankar at #4, they want to keep it flexible (undecided at the moment but open to trying others as well in that spot).

Only Saini gets to travel to UK as a backup bowler along with 2 others to bowl in the nets. Rayadu & Pant stay put in India!

I'm glad to hear that BCCI is not considering any sanctions on Rayudu.
Quote:
"We have taken note of what Rayudu has tweeted. (But) Let's accept that emotions are running high at this moment. There is bound to be disappointment and there needs to be an outlet of expression as long as it's not out of line," a senior BCCI official said on Wednesday.

"He will need some time to soak in the disappointment and it's understandable. There is no need for sanctions. Also, he is one of our standbys. If any injury happens there is every chance, he would go," the official added.
I couldn't agree more.
