Finally, BCCI has announced the 30 probable players of ICC cricket world cup 2015. People were anxious to know the name of the probables as there was uncertainty in the name of Shehwag, Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Zahir Khan. All these veteran players are going through the rough patch of the life. Although, all of them were present in previous world cup but they are not running out of form. Even, the performance in the domestic tournaments is less than satisfactory. Indian fans were expecting some of the veteran players to be selected especially Yuvraj Singh as he was one of the most obvious candidate. He was the last world cup tournament here. Even, his recent performance in the domestic tournament is average.
Just few hours back, we provided a world cup 2015 schedule. India will be clashing against Pakistan in the first match. Since India is a defending champion and there is a big responsibility on their soldiers. Considering the adverse situation in Australia and New Zealand, India may loose the title. Experienced players have been dropped and most of the youngsters have got the big responsibility. The 30 probables will be reduced to half as the January month approaches. The last day of submission of 15 man squad to ICC is 7th January 2015.
India World Cup 2015 Team Squad
Selectors have considered the fast bawling supportive track of Australia and New Zealand and has decided to add more fast bowlers in the team this time. Ishant Sharma has returned in the team and is likely to lead the fast bowling attack. Besides him Varun Aaron, Mohit Sharma and Dhawal Kulkarni have also been included in the squad but none of the later seems to make to top 15 team members. Surprisingly, axar patel from Gujarat has got the place. Selectors have kept showing faith in this young talented all-rounder.
The warm up matches of world cup 2015 have been announced as well. All the teams are gearing up for the world cup 2015 and so is India. With this announcement, the team will start doing a net practice and will do more sessions before the selectors finalizes the final squad. Following are the 30 probables of ICC cricket world cup 2015 tournament.
Mahendra Singh 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, Parveez Rasool, Karn Sharma, Amit Mishra, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Varun Aaron, Dhawal Kulkarni, Stuart Binny, Mohit Sharma, Ashoke Dinda, Kuldeep Yadav and Murali Vijay.
Who do you think as the best person to get the place in the final squad? Players like Ashoke Dinda, Karan Sharma, Kedar Jadhav have little to no experience and they are likely to be omitted from the final squad. Other people and retired cricketers are not surprised to see youngsters in the team. Currently, only 4 players are in the team who were there in the previous world cup. It means that India is going with a fresh and young blood this time
