HAVE ENOUGH AM­MU­NI­TION FOR THE WORLD CUP, SAYS SHAS­TRI

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - Sport -

In­dia are a flex­i­ble side with enough am­mu­ni­tion in their arse­nal go­ing into the World Cup, says head coach Ravi Shas­tri, mak­ing it clear that com­bi­na­tions would de­pend on con­di­tions. When Vi­jay Shankar was picked in the 15-man squad, it was as­sumed that the Tamil Nadu all-rounder could bat at the cru­cial num­ber four po­si­tion but Shas­tri said there were many op­tions for that slot. “We are a flex­i­ble team. It’s horses for cour­ses, we have got enough am­mu­ni­tion. We have got enough play­ers who can bat at 4. So, I am not re­ally wor­ried about that,” Shas­tri said. “I think we have got all bases cov­ered. Last thing you want is pas­sen­gers on the tour. You want to have in those 15 play­ers ... who can play any­time, at any given time.”
