New Delhi, May 15 - India head coach Ravi Shastri believes the team has got all bases covered going into the World Cup slated to be held in England and Wales from May 30.

In an interview to a cricket website, Shastri said India have a flexible team and have players who can play at any position at any given point of time. 

"I think we have got all bases covered, really. Last thing you want is passengers on the tour. You want to have in those 15 players -- a player who can play anytime, at any given time," Shastri said in an interview with Cricketnext.

He also said that they have plenty of options for the much-debated number four slot. 

Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had named Vijay Shankar as the number four batsman ahead of Ambati Rayadu because of his "three-dimensional" cricket. However, Shankar has been in the scanner as he was not able to deliver as per expectations in the just concluded edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He scored 244 runs in the 15 matches playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH).
