BCCI announces team India probable’s for ICC Cricket WC 2015

MUMBAI: The announcement of India’s probable cricket squad for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 is finally out. And so are some surprises. Cricketers like Yuvraj Singh, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Gautam Gambhir and Harbhajan Singh have failed to make it to the 30 member preliminary list, released by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).


Those who figure in the list include; MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Robin Uthappa, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, Manoj Tiwary, Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha, Sanju Samson, R Ashwin, Parvez Rasool, Karn Sharma, Amit Mishra, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohd Shami, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron, Dhawal Kulkarni, Stuart Binny, Mohit Sharma, Ashoke Dinda, Kuldeep Yadav and Murali Vijay.


Well known cricket expert and commentator, Harsha Bhogle took to the micro blogging site twitter, to express his reaction on the development. He tweeted “It means there is a huge churn from the World Cup winning team of 2011. Only four survive in a list of 30!! Dhoni, Ashwin, Raina, Kohli.”

The national cricket team selector was headed by Sandeep Patil, who made the decision today for the upcoming mega event to be held in Australia and New Zealand. It will be held from February to March. Interestingly the prominent names that did not make it, were part of the winning squad during the World Cup win in 2011.
