Virat Kohli Reveals Why Dinesh Karthik Was Picked Over Rishabh Pant In India World Cup Team

India World Cup 2019 team was announced last month with couple of selections going on to become major talking points. One of them was Dinesh Karthik's inclusion as the second wicketkeeper ahead of young sensation Rishabh Pant. And while chief selector MSK Prasad made it amply clear it was unfortunate that Rishabh Pant missed out, the decision was taken keeping in mind Dinesh Karthik's experience. Now, India captain Virat Kohli has stressed on the same point, saying Karthik's experience and composure in crunch situations helped him pip Rishabh Pant.

MS Dhoni will be India's designated first-choice wicketkeeper in England and Wales with MSK Prasad making it clear that the 33-year-old Karthik will only play if Dhoni gets injured during the World Cup 2019.
