There are various senior players and youngsters who are in the contest for the role. The senior players probably have their last chance to fulfill their World Cup dream because of their age.
They would have to do everything in their power to fulfill that dream. Their performances in the next couple of ODI series would decide their role in the team for the world cup. Here are the 3 Indian players who will have their last chance to fulfill their World Cup dream.
#3 Dinesh Karthik
Dinesh Karthik found a new lifeline when he played a crucial role in the Nidahas Trophy, where he scored 29 runs off 8 balls in the final to clinch the trophy. Karthik finished the game by hitting a flat six off Soumya Sarkar.
Karthik found his form in 2017 when he finished as the highest run-getter in the Vijay Hazare trophy. He was awarded an international call for his performance in the series. He was also excellent as a finisher for Kolkata Knight Rider in the IPL. He scored 498 runs at a strike rate of 147.77 for KKR, which helped them to reach the qualifiers.
Karthik needs to show consistency as a finisher if he wants to fit into the World Cup squad. He also has to play one big innings for the team to prove himself. He has been constantly getting out in the twenties and thirties which has not helped his case. Karthik has enough ODIs to seal his spot and play for the last time for his team in the World Cup.
