BCCI asked to pick squad for Champions Trophy

BCCI asked to pick squad for Champions Trophy

India's last ODI series before the ongoing Indian Premier League was a three-match affair against England at home.

Rohit Sharma: Rohit Sharma aka Hit-Man Sharma is back in action and will possibly open the innings with Shikhar Dhawan, the Gabbar.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) missed the April 25 deadline to announce a squad and threatened a boycott over the dispute.

India are now the defending champions.

The BCCI is furious at the ICC for amending its rules to divert power and money away from cricket's major powers: India, England and Australia.

The 15-member squad selected for the tournament starting in England next month doesn't have too many surprises in it.

R Ashwin: There were doubts on his fitness as he was recovering from a sports hernia but his form in global cricket guaranteed him a spot in the squad. Manish Pandey also finds a place in the squad.

Even as statement described the decision as "unanimous", ex ICC and BCCI chief N Srinivasan, who was part of the meeting through video conferencing, is learnt to have caled for a more hawkish line against the intenational body, an Indian Express report said. "Best person to guide Virat, invaluable for the team". I hope to continue from where I left off. Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be the wicket-keeper in the side.

The Indian team for the Champions Trophy goes: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah.

Manish Pandey, who is now representing Kolkata Knight Riders, last played for India against New Zealand in October 2016.

Speaking to IPL's official website after the match, Dhawan said he was happy to be playing in Champions Trophy and it was a reward for his IPL showing.

India announced its 15-member squad for the upcoming 50-over pinnacle tournament on Monday, and the fans from both nations have marked their calendars for June 4 when the two arch-rivals take on each other in their group clash.
