Amidst all the hullabaloo of the ongoing Indian Premier Legue, the International Cricket Council has blown the bugle of the 2019 Cricket World Cup which is slated to be held in the United Kingdom.

The schedule is out and with it, the shenanigans will also start. Teams have been building their core over the past few years and in these 12-15 months, they will be much closer to what the actual line-up will look like.

There will be a few omissions and here in this article, we take a look at four players who might not make it to the Indian team's squad for the World Cup.

#4 Axar Patel


Viewed as a like-for-like replacement for Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel was considered to be a perfect fit for India's limited overs ambitions.

However, the relative ineffectiveness of the finger spinners in England back in the 2017 Champions Trophy meant that the Indian management were forced to try out Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal and this punt has yielded great dividends for the team.

Hence, Axar might not make it to the Indian squad, purely because in English conditions, wrist spinners will be the preferred breed.
