India's World Cup Squad announced

Indian team for the world Cup Cricket is announced from Chennai. The five members selection commitee finalised the last 15 playing member for the side. Earlier 30-members probable was announced. Rohit Sharma, Sreesanth, Ishant Sharma and Pragyan Ojha could not make their place for this mega event.

The team comes as this:
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt/wk)
Virender Sehwag
Sachin Tendulkar
Gautam Gambhir
Virat Kohli
Yuvraj Singh
Suresh Raina
Harbhajan Singh
Zaheer Khan
Munaf Patel
Praveen Kumar
Yusuf Pathan
Piyush Chawla
R Ashwin
Ashish Nehra.

The team consists of four pacers lead by Zaheer Khan. He will be followed by Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel and Praveen Kumar. In the spinning department Harbhajan Singh will be helped by off-spinners R Ashwin and leg-spinner Piyush Chawla.

Fitness of Tendulkar was said not be of big concern. Earlier he returned home after playing 2nd ODI against SA due to injury. Tendulkar will be fully available for his sixth and maybe last World Cup for Team India.

Rohit Sharma could not find his place in the side before Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli. Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir will be opening the side. But it might be Virat Kohli who will help the team if the duo will be unvailable during any matches in WC. Yusuf Pathan, Yuvraj Singh and Dhoni will be holding keys for the middle order.

The team hasn't picked up any extra wicket-keeper in the 15-man squad. Dinesh Karthik was expected but he also could not make into the side. Interesting to see if Dhoni becomes unavailable or the team can't be resting Dhoni in any match of World Cup.

@kallisfan : Yusuf is in great form. Sachin, Veeru and Gauti will be soon recovered from their injuries and their inuries are not serious they have just taken rest bcoz they don't want to make their injures major one and missing the WC.
Spinners plays the crucial role in the sub-continent wickets so we will get 2 in playing 11.

I agree in the case of robbie and sree.

This squad sucks bigtime. reasons
1) apart from virat, yousuf ,zak , munaf none of them are in form. Although sachin ,veeru, gambhir are grt players they have been having fitness issue. dhoni and yuvi are batting like novice .
2)too many spinners . piush selection is stupid not because he is not good but he has not played international cricket for last 3 years .we have got many part time spinners.
3)no reserve wk .pray doni gets injured who is reserve wk . i think they could have picked robin or parthiv in place of piush.
4)ashish nehra has not been consistent sreesanth who is in good form should have been picked ahead.
hope the guys in bandages do well
