Suresh Raina made it to the limited overs squad for the England tour as a replacement for Ambati Rayudu due to the latter’s inability to pass the mandatory Yo-Yo test but Raina been struggling with his form as seen in the series against England. Only if he improves his batting abilities in England (with the World Cup being played there), can he provide himself with an opportunity to represent the Indian team for World Cup 2019.

We saw his miraculous performances at the World Cup in the 2011 edition where he was the man who took India through to the finale by playing brilliant innings in the QF against Australia and in the semi-final against Pakistan.

8. Ajinkya Rahane

I know eye-brows will raise - but the Indian team has many unsolved problems in the middle order, the best solution to which is Ajinkya Rahane. The man responsible for India’s ODI series win in England when they toured the United Kingdom in 2014 did not don the blue jersey this year.

He wasn’t even in the squad but always has a chance for WC 2019 thanks to his previous performances in the overseas tours. He can be that dependable middle-order batsman whenever the top order collapses or can even open the batting as it will be a long tournament.

9. Hardik Pandya

Coming to the all-rounders, the style icon Hardik Pandya is the best all-rounder not only in India but also all over the world. He can hit some big shots aside from his unbelievable fielding skills.

Pandya can also provide the team much-needed wickets through his fast-medium bowling. He was fantastic against England and Ireland both with the bat and ball.
