Rohit Sharma, Shami Return To Indian Squad For Champions Trophy

Rohit Sharma, Shami Return To Indian Squad For Champions Trophy

One can understand Raina's disappointment in not finding a spot in the Indian cricket team for the Champions Trophy. His last ODI for India came in October 2015 in the series decider against South Africa at home.

The former selection chief also allays concerns around form of some of the established Indian players in action in IPL. He has been kept on standby along with Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik but in a short tournament like the Champions Trophy where a team will play five matches at the most, it is highly unlikely they will be required. The (IPL) franchise was magnanimous enough to listen to our request to rest him.

India's 15-man Indian squad for the team's defense of the ICC Champions Trophy, scheduled to be played between June 1-18 in England and Wales, wears a distinct look of familiarity, which the chairman of selectors was eager to clarify did not mean that the picks were straightforward. Yuvraj didn't get an opportunity to bat in the match but he did bowl four overs. I think he has got one of the best brains, and is the best person to guide (skipper) Virat (Kohli).

"How many of us still believe that MSD is still the best wicketkeeper in the world?" I am hopeful that I can perform well in the upcoming Champions Trophy.

Developers at the conference can expect to hear about Azure Container Services, Azure DocumentDB, and machine learning advances. But the conference also included an update on the uptake of Microsoft's signature software, released in summer 2015.

The playoffs start in England with India taking on Pakistan on June 4. "As of now, we have picked Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma as openers and Ajinkya Rahane is the back-up", Prasad replied when asked about Gambhir.

Some of the young guns - Rishabh Pant, Rahul Tripathi, Yuzvendra Chahal and Sanju Samson - have been performing well in the ongoing IPL season but the selectors didn't read too much into their IPL exploits. He would have the support of MS Dhoni who will play in this tournament as a wicket-keeper batsman.

Squad: Virat Kohli (capt), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Manish Pandey. The last time these two teams met was in ICC World 2016 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. "He narrowly missed out, but has a big role to play for India in the future", he said. R Ashwin, who is now recovering from a sports hernia, and Ravindra Jadeja can perhaps expect part-time assistance from Yuvraj Singh, who kept his spot after his ODI career was given a re-start in the series against England in January.
