Indian selectors have announced 15-man squad

Indian selectors have announced 15-man squad for ICC cricket world cup, 2015. Everyone is looking whether Yuvraj Singh will make the comeback. But, selectors have excluded Yuvraj from cricket world cup 2015, tri-series featuring Australia and New Zealand. Yuvraj has been in excellent form in the ongoing Ranji Trophy, scoring three consecutive tons but did not find a place in the final squad. Virender Sehwag too overlooked who smashed back-to-back tons for Delhi in the ongoing Ranji trophy.

All rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who is struggling with injury has been included with spinner R Ashwin and another all rounder Axar Patel. The squad does not have a back-up wicket keeper, but Ambati Rayudu is expected to fill in that slot as second wicket keeper for India. Robin Uthappa who is in good form has been overlooked. Stuart Binny is the only medium pace bowling all-rounder in the squad.

Indian selectors have included four fast bowlers in the likes of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Shami and Umesh Yadav. The only specialist spinner in the squad is R Ashwin. Jadeja and Axar Patel were also more than handy with the bat. The 5 member selection panel has met in Mumbai to select the squad, joined by Dhoni and Fletcher via video-conference.
