This week on The Cricket Pod, co-hosts Paul Radley and Chitrabhanu Kadalayil discuss the composition of India's Cricket World Cup squad.

Was Rishabh Pant's exclusion in favour of the more experienced but ageing Dinesh Karthik harsh? What to make of Lokesh Rahul's selection ahead of Ambati Rayudu? And why was Ravindra Jadeja, who eventually got picked, not a shoo-in?

Listen here to find out.

Also in this episode:

  • The UAE men's team have gone backwards judging by the way they played in Zimbabwe, says Radley.

  • Are Indian cricket players and fans having a 'fairness' problem? Kadalayil gives you his take.
