Team India's head Coach Rahul Dravid believes India's batting lining needs a little more fixing, India recently lost the T20 series against west indies, and based on the outcome of the 5 matches it is quite evident that India's batting needs to be improved.
As far as the world cup is concerned, the final squad for India is yet to be announced. Rahul Dravid believes the world cup squad will be slightly different, and it will be very interesting to see the addition BCCI makes. India is now headed to Ireland, and perhaps after testing out more players by the end of the series, we will find out what the final playing XI for the world cup is.

Rahul Dravid on the World Cup squad & WI series loss
In a recent interview, Rahul Dravid shared his thoughts on India's weak batting line up and reflected on losing the series against West Indies.
"Our squad (for the world cup) will be a little different to what we have here," Dravid said, as quoted by cricbuzz.com. "In terms of the squad that we had here, it didn't allow us the flexibility to have the combination to allow us to make the changes.
Going forward, we will have to look at certain areas where we can get better. "Finding depth in our batting is an area that we are trying to address and do as best as we possibly can. But that's certainly an area that we need to look at, how we can not weaken our bowling attack but have a certain depth in our batting that can go deeper.
As the game is going on, the scores are becoming bigger and bigger. "You get into any series wanting to win it, that's the first thing that we wanted to do, we didn't tick that off. Dravid further said: We didn't win the series, that was a disappointment.
Other than that, there were some young guys we wanted to try out, wanted to give them opportunities in the series. We gave a few debuts in the series".
