Indian Squad for Twenty20 T20 World Cup 2010

Perhaps the latest news in India is the selection of Indian players for the upcoming ICC World Cup Twenty20. National selectors of Indian cricket team have announced a 15-man squad for the event.

If you are fan of cricket then you should know that ICC World Twenty20 will kick off from April 30 and it will continue till May 16, 2010. It is going to be the third edition of Twernty20 World Cup. India has been put in Group C along with Afghanistan and South Africa. They will open their campaign against weak foe Afghanistan on May 1, 2010. I am giving the squad here:

Indian Squad for Twenty20 World Cup 2010: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Virender Sehwag (vice-captain), Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Ravindra Jadeja, Zaheer Khan, Praveen Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Ranganath Vinay Kumar, Dinesh Karthik, Rohit Sharma and Piyush Chawla.

Inaugural champion team India is called one of the strongest teams in this tournament. According to the selectors, they have announced the best team including strong batting and bowling line up. They also showed their confidence about India’s performance in this competition. But I am not sure about it. You should know that India was one of the early eliminated teams in the second edition of Twenty20 World Cup. Who knows that Indian cricket team will not disappoint their fans this year? As a fan of Indian cricket team, I will request all the supporters and board members not to dream too much.

Players have been selected based on the performance of domestic cricket league. We also can see that selectors give more importance in the performance of third edition of Indian Premier League when it comes to select a player for the shortest version of cricket game. If you look at the Indian squad then you can see that some players have been picked up on the performance of DLF IPL 2010.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni will lead Indian cricket team while Virender Sehwag will be his deputy.

Ranganath Vinay Kumar is the only uncapped player who has been selected in the Indian squad. Karnataka fast bowler Ranganath Vinay Kumar is going to make his debut in the third edition of Twenty20 World Cup in West Indies. He picked up 46 wickets in the Ranji trophy. Not only that but also he is the second highest wicket taker so far in the IPL 2010 with eight scalps.

India’s most experienced fast bowler Ishant Sharma has failed to make his place in squad. Another eliminated player is Virat Kohli. Selectors are not satisfied with their performance. Rudra Pratap Singh is also out. While elder brother Yusuf Pathan will be seen playing cricket in West Indies, Irfan Pathan brother will have to enjoy the game in front of a TV set or in the stadium as a spectator.

Despite being injured both Gautam Gambhir and Ashish Nehra have been included in the squad. It is thought that Chief selector Kris Srikkanth and his colleagues kept faith on them. No doubt, they are the most important players in Indian cricket team. Even they have great contribution to their national cricket team’s glorious performance. These two players play for Delhi Daredevils.

While Gautam Gambhir was playing for Delhi Daredevils, he strained his hamstring against Mumbai Indian’s in the third edition of Indian Premier League. However, this year Ashish Nehra could not play a single IPL match because of his rib cage injury.

Both Gautam Gambhir and Ashish Nehra went to Sri Lanka for an ayurvedic treatment. It is expected that they will recover soon before the start of Twenty20 World Cup. I hope that selectors should select alternative players who can successfully replace them when team needs.

Leg-spinner Piyush Chawla has been recalled in the Indian squad ahead of another young spinner Pragyan Ojha. For the first time he has been selected in the T20 squad. Pragyan Ojha played in the second edition of Twenty20 World Cup in England last year. Despite being in a great form Karnataka batsman Manish Pandey failed to impress the selectors.

  12. where are these players ..

    Virat Kohli
    Manish Pandey
    Robin Uthappa
    Amit Mishra
    Pragyan Ojha
    Irfan Pathan

    maybe its time to give rohit sharma a little rest because i don't see him performing anywhere let alone IPL.
    Also Piyush Chawla's an undercokked talent , he needs time to focus on his strengths and weakness ..

    ReplyDelete
  17. I think that this team is good.Robin Utthappa is playing in a quite awesome way but its not necessary that he would fire in T20 World Cup as well.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would like to oppose the comment by Mr. Anonymous on April 10, 2010 at 11:02 AM as only two players are from CSKs. One is MS Dhoni and the other one Suresh Raina. Both of them played very well aginst South Africa and Sri Lanka during recent tours, so both deserve to be in the team.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think selectors have selected a good team as same was the team in 2007 and 2009 T20 World Cup

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think Piyush Chawla should be replaced with Praghyan Ojha & Rohit Sharma replaced with Robin Utthappa...Good chance for Vinay Kumar to show his ability

    ReplyDelete
  21. I totally agree with Robin utappa ,irfan Pathan & Rp Singh to Be included in our T20 team Rohit sharma has not performed why can't selection comitee rethink

    ReplyDelete
  25. i think selector r gone mad by not selecting in form Robin Uthappa quick 40-50 runs in middle overs can make help to india win a match & he must replace F***ing Rohit Sharma.Little piyush chawla must be replaced by Pragyan Ojha or Amit Mishra

    ReplyDelete
  26. so foolish tendulkar is must

    ReplyDelete
  27. y no irfan pathan in the squad and y is that useless nehra ??????

    ReplyDelete
  28. rohit is really a talented player,he should b given this chance but uthappa should replace jadeja, jadeja is not suitable to t20 format..chawla should b replaced by ojha or mishra for sure..

    ReplyDelete
  29. why r u all shouting sachin sachin when it's his own decision not to play t20 cricket..

    ReplyDelete
  30. the teams is good but i do believe that robin instead of karthik, as robin can also be used as a wicket keeper. My starting 11:
    1. Sehwag
    2. Gambhir
    3. Dhoni
    4. Yuvraj
    5. Raina
    6. Sharma
    7. Pathan
    8. Harbhajan
    9. Zaheer Khan
    10. Nehra
    11. Praveen or Vinay Kumar
    it is a good team overall may be a better seamer instead of praveen. And piyush is an excellent selection as on spinning tracks he will be more influential than harbhajan

    ReplyDelete
  31. wher's MURALI VIJAY....!!! He is in good form now... Must be included in d squad....!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. this waste thing that out of irfan pathan and robin uttappa i think bcci commit under waste players like piyush chawla,ashish nehra and avindra jadeja

    ReplyDelete
  33. Heres who should be in for whom: Murali Vijay for Sehwag, Irfan Pathan for Praveen Kumar, Saurab Tiwary for Rohit Sharma, Harmeet Singh for Nehra and Ashwin for Jadeja.

    ReplyDelete

  39. is it a rite way to select the team, where r d hitters. v r going to play fastest cricket on this earth, not a test match. dinesh karthik is standing no where in blasting list of IPL 2010. y selectors only thimk abt big names or IKONS, i m missing Murli vijay , Robin Uthappa, Ohja , Mishra

    ReplyDelete
  40. I think Karthik should be replaced by Robin, Nehra by Irfan, Chawla by Ojha as Irfan is also a gud hitter of the ball they could have an Extra all rounder Nehra is waste to be selected.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This team is not compleate with out the "THE LITTLE MASTER"

    ReplyDelete
  42. the first 11 should have been

    1-sehwag/vijay
    2-gambhir
    3-yuvraj
    4-raina
    5-dhoni
    6-utappa/jadeja(if they need a xtra bowler)
    7-y.pathan
    8-harbhajan
    9-zaheer
    10-praveen
    11-rp singh

    ReplyDelete
