BCCI announces World Cup Team
Raj Bhandari | 06 Jan 2015

Well, owing to a poor game play of team India, Australians have already registered a victory in the ongoing 4 matches test series. Even the symptoms of last test being played in Sydney under the leadership of newly appointed young and aggressive captain Virat Kohli are really not healthy.

So the focus of the millions of the die-hard fans of game in this cricket crazy nation has already been shifted to the upcoming world cup scheduled to begin from 14th February2015 in Australia and New Zealand. Obviously every Tom, Dick and Harry is interested to know about formation of team India.

The most anticipated Indian team for the 2015 World Cup has been just announced. There are no surprises in the 15 member squad which is to be led by MS Dhoni. There is no place for Yuvraj Singh in India's squad for the 2015 World Cup as selectors have kept faith in the youngsters. MS Dhoni and Duncan Fletcher were also a part of the meeting via Video conference.

The Indian team for the World Cup has six batsmen excluding MS Dhoni, five pacers and also has three All-Rounders. Ravindra Jadeja (who is scheduled to be out of action due to an injury) has also been included in the squad.  Surprisingly Stuart Binny was able to make a place in the team due to his domestic record and his ability to bowl medium pace.

Although as expected by a large number of fans Yuvraj has not been included but selectors have confirmed that his name was discussed in the meeting.
