Rishabh Pant, who has been India's regular wicketkeeper in Tests in the absence of Wriddhiman Saha, is another absentee and chairman of selectors MSK Prasad explained that Karthik was chosen due to his superior wicketkeeping skills.

In the squad that was announced on Monday, Dhoni will be playing his fourth, expected to be the final, 50-over World Cup.

Ambati Rayudu, K L Rahul and all-rounder Vijay Shankar's name are in the contention for the No.4 slot.

There is still hope for Pant though as Prasad admitted that Pant or Karthik was the biggest topic of debate in the selection meeting.

Karthik, the oldest Indian player in terms of global debut (three months before Mahendra Singh Dhoni in September 2004), was also part of the Indian squad during its disastrous 2007 World Cup campaign. "That's the reason we went with Dinesh Karthik", he said.

"Pant is full of talent, he has time on his hands". It's just unfortunate that he's missed out. "That scored for him". More importantly, Jadeja brings with him solidarity at the lower end of the batting and not to forget his brilliance on the field.

'We did give a few more chances to Ambati Rayudu but Vijay Shankar gives three dimensions. "After the (2017) Champions Trophy, we tried quite a few people in that position".

"We are more or less sorted", Kohli said.

As reported by PTI earlier, Prasad confirmed that Shankar is being seen as a potential number four candidate along with Rahul and Kedar Jadhav. "Now we have plenty of options for that slot".

The selection committee has opted to go with KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik as the batsmen alongside Kohli, Dhawan, Rohit, Kedar and MS Dhoni. The national team will leave for London on April 23 to play one-off T20I and five ODIs against England ahead of the World Cup.

India's campaign begins against South Africa on 5 June at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.
