Hey there! Welcome back to the cult ! Rather than discussing on useless topics , I am up with a comparatively interesting and what was once the talk of the nation "MAKE IN INDIA!" .

This Swadeshi movement covered 25 sectors of economy and invited the foreign countries to invest in India by planting their industries here instead of manufacturing their goods outside the country.

10. Bhuvneshwar Kumar

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is exceptional with the new ball. He swings the ball in both the directions and can also defy batsmen in the death overs with his variations like the slower ball, yorker and knuckle ball.Everyone knows that reverse swing has almost become extinct from the modern day 50 overs cricket where two new balls are used so the importance of bowlers like Bhuvi increases. Additionally ,he can also play some shots at lower order which would provide India more depth in the batting order.



11. Jasprit Bumrah

THE FIND OF MUMBAI INDIANS! JASPRIT BUMRAH is currently the most unpredictable bowler in the game of cricket with his pretty unorthodox bowling action.He bowls deadly yorkers at the death and restricts the opposition batsmen from  smashing big hits in the powerplay thus giving no momentum away at the beginning of the innings .With his misery economy rate , he can definitely cut short the probable target by …

After a flawless  IPL representing Kings XI , he has been called up for the tour of England.He is consistently scoring in all the 3 formats across the world in all conditions. There is no doubt that KL will be picked  for WC 2019 next year.He can come at no.4 and provide the required stability in the middle order or can also be used as a third opener provided Dhawan or Rohit do not gain any momentum.




5. M.S Dhoni (WK)

The winning captain of WC 2011 will play now his last ICC WC under the leadership of Virat Kohli. Seeing the performance in this  year's IPL, Dhoni has made it clear that he is not done with the sport and is all set to contribute with gloves behind the stumps along with finishing the game off at the end with his clean striking.Probably this will be the last ICC event of MSD. Everyone's eye will be on this key player!

7. Suresh Raina  Image credit - deshdoot.com

Suresh Raina was selected for the limited overs squad for the ongoing England tour but has been  struggling with his form, so only if he improves himself and scores piles of runs  against the world no.1 English team  he can provide himself with an opportunity to be selected in Indian team for World cup 2019. We have seen some miraculous performances at the World Cup especially 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 as well as in the semi final against Pakistan.

He isn't in the squad currently but always has a chance to be selected for WC 2019 credits to his previous performances in the overseas tours previously . He can be that dependable middle order batsman whenever the t…

Who would have thought Umesh to make a heroic comeback like he made in this year's IPL playing for the Royal Challengers, his bowling has certainly improved under Virat Kohli which has made him a regular in the Indian squad.He has played in England before and because he has that extra pace plus swing ,Umesh Yadav is very much likely to be part of Indian Team next year.



14. Kuldeep Yadav

England pitches aren't helpful for spinners but this chinaman spinner has defied expectations taking wickets at every ground and has tensed  every player , every team management the way  he has bowled. He isn't afraid to  give the ball some flight which forces the batsman to play down the pitch and creates higher chances of a wicket.
