Players such as Uthappa, Mohit Sharma, Rasool, Saha, Jadhav have been either consistent in the domestic circuit or the IPL, which helped them grab a place in the Indian team. Their form of late has been crucial in their selection - Uthappa is the current orange cap holder with 655 runs in ongoing IPL and Mohit Sharma, the purple cap holder has been a bright prospect with 22 wickets.While, Suresh Raina would be leading the team in the tournament.
There is no doubt about their talent, but when they travel away from home, they falter, which is a major concern. A good performance against Bangladesh might not immediately open the doors for them in the Indian ODI team, but they are sure to get a chance when players get injured.
Players such as
Sehwag and Yuvraj could also have been selected for the ODI series,
but they were not chosen as they have lacked consistency. The
selectors have selected a team, completely on merit. ''Still, the
doors have not been closed for them. Sehwag and Yuvraj can be brought
back, if they perform in the domestic circuit. The selectors have
given youngsters a chance, '' said Chetan Chauhan.
