Prashant Chopra, the Himachal Pradesh batsman, has been recalled to the India Under-19 squad for the World Cup. Unmukt Chand will continue to captain the team, assisted by Akshdeep Nath.

India Under-19 squad for the World Cup

  • Unmukt Chand (capt), Akshdeep Nath (vice-capt), Manan Vohra, Akhil Herwadkar, Vijay Zol, Sandipan Das, Baba Aparajith, Prashant Chopra, Sandeep Sharma, Kamal Passi, Rush Kalaria, Mohsin Sayyed, Smit Patel (wk), Harmeet Singh, Vikas Mishra
  • In: Prashant Chopra
  • Out: Sanju Samson, Ravikant Singh

Chopra had played in the quadrangular series in Australia in April, which also featured New Zealand and England, but was not picked for the recently-concluded Asia Cup. He played five List A games for Himachal in the 2011-12 domestic season, scoring a half-century that helped set up a win against Services.

Wicketkeeper batsman Sanju Samson and seamer Ravikant Singh, who were part of the Asia Cup squad, have missed out. Ravikant did not get a game at the Asia Cup, but Samson - who played as a specialist batsman - registered a highest score of 9 in four innings. India were joint-winners in the series, after tieing the final with Pakistan.

India are placed in Group C for the World Cup, with West Indies, Zimbabwe and Papua New Guinea. Their first match is on August 12, against West Indies. The tournament runs from August 11 to August 26 in Queensland, Australia.

selection at junior level has always been dicey,players like hardwarker,smit patel get there chances despite non performance,nikhil gangta,shubam ranjane,nitish rana should have been there, i can go on an on but it is futile since most of us so little about junior cricket .

@ ESPNcricinfo staff. ur analysis about chopra nd sanju samson is totally wrong. i would request u to kindly analyze the performance of all the 30 players, who are in the probable squad of world cup since last 1 year. u urself will analyze at least 4-5 players like akhil herwadkar, sandippan das, manan vohra, samit patel nd harmeet singh , who are currently in squad should have been out of squad. some other players like hanuman vihari, c khurana, shubham ranjane shresh gopal nd snaju samson should have been included.can sm1 tell, why prashant chopra was dropped after quadrangular series, if he was dropped, bcoz he scored 0 runs in aus,then why he was included in squad, same treatment sd hv bn also fiven to kumar deobrat.
