Carey gets chance to prove World Cup credentials against India

Everything will depend on the form of each player, nobody is guaranteed that flight to England.

He should be the least concerned about losing a place in India's World Cup XI in England a few months later but for Rohit Sharma, nothing comes easy and should not be taken for granted.

"Look I don't know whether that stance is going to change in the future".

"I have played enough cricket in the last five years and I can not comment on even the first thing I do when I retire because I don't feel like I am going to pick up the bat again", he said.

"He is so experienced and the most successful captain till now", Azhar said.

Sarri said: "As you know very well I am not in control of the transfer market". Monaco are now 19th in Ligue 1 having scored just 16 goals.

"The squad that plays these 13 ODIs is more or less the same squad that will go to the World Cup". Rohit had left the Test series midway when baby girl Samaira was born to be beside his wife Ritika. "We as the Indian cricket team and responsible cricketers don't align with those views, those were individual opinions".

Siddle, who last played a ODI in November, 2010, was also given the opportunity to force his way into World Cup contention after being selected on the back of recent domestic T20 form while first-choice pace trio of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins were rested. Their bowling lineup can put us under pressure without a doubt. "With him around, there's a sense of calmness".

Tim Paine termed former Indian captain as one of the best wicket-keeper batsmen to have ever played the game of cricket. "His calmness and advice, what he thinks about the game and what we should do right now is very important", Rohit said.

"So him being around for India is always helpful". His presence around the group is a massive factor. And one of the reasons for that is MS and how he has guided these two guys in the middle about how to keep things tight and field placements. "Chahal and Kuldeep are both doing really well so somebody like Dhoni standing behind the stumps and helping those guys about what the batsman is trying to do, it makes a huge difference I think".
