Arun acknowledged that newcomers Kuldeep and Chahal have done exceptionally well. "They are not afraid to flight the ball. They are not afraid to impart extra spin to gain something, and they are not dependent on the wicket," Arun said yesterday.

"We wanted to look at all the existing talent in the pool and then decide for the World Cup. It's not that Ashwin and Jadeja are out of the race. They could still be (included)."
