India World Cup Squad Announced - No Major Howlers

On 17 Jan'11 India announced a 15 man squad that will represent the country in the World Cup starting in Feb'11. The cricket world cup returns to the Indian Sub-continent after nearly 15 years. This time India partners with its neighboring countries Srilanka and Bangladesh to host the World Cup.

The following is the squad announced by India.

Squad: MS Dhoni (capt & wk), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Praveen Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel, Piyush Chawla, R Ashwin

Personally, the team selected looks the best the selectors could put together. Though many may argue that Rohit Sharma missed the bus but with team already packed with 7 batsmen there was no space for another. Instead would feel that Parthiv Patel was the one missing the bus. He has been scoring runs in domestic and also in the ODIs he has appeared so far. Moreover, we all know MSD has the habit of breaking down due to the his bad back and that's when PP could have stepped in. Also there is uncertainty over the fitness of Sehwag/Gambhir/Tendulkar and in such case PP would have also fitted in the spot of an opener. The other person one feels could have missed the bus is Ojha who could have been a better bet than Chawla.

All said and done, India have announced their best 15 men whom we should all support and cheer.

Go Blue Khelo Ji Shaan Se Jeeto Shaan Se..
