5 Indians Who Can Be Backup Options In World Cup

5. Shreyas Gopal / Ravichandran Ashwin / Mayank Markande

Another weak link in the Indian squad is the spin department. Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav has been playing non-stop cricket for the last year or so. If any one of them snaps midway, the management has only Ravindra Jadeja.

However Jadeja is not someone who can fit in all conditions in England. As a result in this case Shreyas Gopal could have been a better replacement. Gopal hasn’t made his debut for his country yet, but he has got the temperament and the skill set.

He isn’t afraid to bowl to big batsmen and has the added ability to bat. Apart from Gopal, the management can look to Mayank Markande as well. If the management wants a more experienced face as a replacement, they can opt for Ravichandran Ashwin.
