Indian Squad for Zimbabwe Tour and Tri Nation ODI Series 2010

Indian selectors announced a young 15-man squad for India’s upcoming tour of Zimbabwe. At least 9 regular players including captain MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar are missing the tour. Some of them have been rested while some are recovering from their injuries.
On the tour, India will take part in a tri-nation ODI tournament involving host Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka. The tournament begins on 28 May 2010. After the tournament, India will face Zimbabwe in a two-match twenty20 series.

Indian players who are going to miss the tour are: Dhoni, Tendulkar, Zaheer Khan, Virender Sehwag, Praveen Kumar, Gautam Gambhir, Ashish Nehra, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh.

Young Suresh Raina will lead India on the tour which will give him an opportunity to show his leadership skill for the first time. In the absence of many front-line players, Indian selectors called up some of India’s promising players who showed strong performances in IPL 2010.

Pankaj Singh, Naman Ojha and R Ashwin are the 3 uncapped players included in the squad. This is the first call up for wicketkeeper Naman Ojha who had a very successful IPL campaign with Rajasthan Royals this year. Young pacer Ashok Dinda also earned a recall from the national selectors with his IPL performance for Kolkata Knight Riders.

Indian pace attack looks totally new in the presence of Dinda, Vinay Kumar, Pankaj Singh and Umesh Yadav who was called up as the replacement of injured pacer Praveen Kumar during the T20 world cup 2010.

In spin department, Amit Mishra and Pragyan Ojha made a come back on the back of their IPL performances. Besides, Tamil Nadu off spinner R Ashwin has been awarded another call up following his excellent performance with Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2010.

Indian batting line up, however, has a number of well-known faces including vice-captain Virat Kohli. Murali Vijay and Dinesh Karthik will open for India who will be followed by Raina, Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and two all rounders: Yusuf Pathan and Ravindra Jadeja.

Piyush Chawla was not picked up for the tri-nation series, but the spinner will be part of India’s twenty20 squad in Zimbabwe.

Here is the Indian squad for the Zimbabwe tour 2010:

  5. WHat about robin and irfan????The selection is absolutely regional .if it is based on ipl robin Should have been given a chance.he performed well in the tournament.Ravindra jadeja did not play in the ipl also.despite his his poor form he got a chance.The selectors should think about the present form and not about the past.robin is always a better choice than vijay.

  10. Its very unfair with Robin Utthapa.I cant undrstnd why he is not been given a single chance.Its looks like a political game is going on with the silection of robin.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yusuf Pathan and Rohit Sharma due a batting powerplay is well

    ReplyDelete
  12. R Ashwin is good performance in a ipl

    ReplyDelete
  13. wat about hitter robin and allrounder irfan... why ravindra jadeja is in?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Give a chance to yusuf to open the game.. it takes india to post the good total..

    ReplyDelete
  15. Its worring that Saurav Tiwary is not selcted even after his consistent performance in IPL . This guy should have got chance instead of Yousuf

    ReplyDelete
  16. y not subramaniam badrinath kept in the squad??!! i think he's a promising player in the opening order. he can be india's michael hussey if givin a chance.

    ReplyDelete
  17. lot of politics going on. instead of Ravinder jadeja. they would have picked up Saurav Tiwari, Robin uttapa, Raydu, Abhishek Nayar,Dhawal, lot more option........

    ReplyDelete
  18. very rediculous selection to say the least. robin not even included in t20. no explanation wht so ever for tht.no temperment for ravindra jadega. plz dont take him.One good thing is Umesh yadav is thr. He should have played in T20 WC. Atleast in Barbodos. Atleast we indians can see someone bowling at 145

    ReplyDelete
  19. very rediculous selection from selectors atleast given once chance to manish pandey

    ReplyDelete
  20. not a good team shem on u guys

    ReplyDelete
  21. yusuf pathan's inclusion is good but should get a chance in the order to decide his fate by himself.New face of bowler is stunning.Every bowlder should try to throw a single bounce ball in every over.

    ReplyDelete
  22. India has lost this ICC T20 worldcup due to having non capable team as there was some players were missing who could perform well & India could win the CUP easily... it was responsibility of selection committee who didnt selected the right ones.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Are these people in BCCI get bribery from R.Jadeja.....? its a long time suspense for me, even though he failed in all the time when he get chance, he will be a member of all squad.

    ReplyDelete
  24. my team
    suresh raina, dinesh kartik, utapaa, virat koli, nayar, panday, irfan, mishra, ojha, yadav, dinda, dhaval kulkarni, rohit sharma, raydu

    ReplyDelete
  25. selectors are not using their brains yusuf pathan is a hopless player & ravindra jadeja is not fit for international this factor is hurting the indian spectators

    ReplyDelete
  26. fuck u selectors
    lot of politics going on. instead of Ravinder jadeja they would have picked up Saurav Tiwari, Robin uttapa, Raydu, Abhishek Nayar,Dhawal,panday...

    robin is always a better choice than vijay,yousuf,jadeja.

    Saurav Tiwary is not selcted even after his consistent performance in IPL.
    This guy's should have got chance instead of Yousuf,jadeja.

    it's really hurting man when u people not give chance to the right players.

    ReplyDelete
  34. this is a good thing to experiment with new players and a fresh team.........but i feel yusuf pathan has been given enough and many chances to prove himself worthy of a spot....n should be dropped....would have really liked to c IRFAN PATHAN ROBIN UTHAPPA AND MANISH PANDEY in the squad ........its hightime robin n irfan get back into the team to bring it back to its winning ways......

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think ambati raiudu , saurabh tiwari, robin utthapa,these are three players which should have to be in indian squad but all indian cricket fan knows they have no god father. ravindera jadeja, rohit sharma. m.vijay why they are selected they are always struggling for their cosistance performance.

  37. seems to be a great team.good commitment by selectors.these tours are always mede to be experimental.no better chance than it for selectors to give teams integrity at young shoulders.raina would be more responsible.AND a tremendous blow for senior players to take rest and to improve fitness and come back with a BANG in asia cup.

  38. WHY RAVINDER JADEJA??? IS HE SON-IN-LAW OF BA$TARD MR PAWAR

    ReplyDelete
  39. Talking about aggressive batsmen robin is next to viru...he can bring in the run rate needed in few overs..ravindra is not good enough to play in ranji games.!If you pick jadeja and pathan in your squad why pick 3 more spinners!!!!!!!S tiwari should have got a chance..he is a fantastic batsmen...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Stupid Selection.............players like Vijay, Jadeja and Yusuf are not international players.....................Please bring in more solid players like Nayar, Uthapa, Irfan,RP Singh.............Fast Bowling Dept is brittle............Are we preparing for the world Cup????????? nuts...........???

  49. Hai friends,,, its a business for them, So plz dnt waste your precious time by watching their cricket.I like to play cricket rather than watching ,,,especially india's cricket.If LALIT MODI is continuing like this, no players will play for india, they will go behind ipl's n by that they will get full n full enjoyment with huge amount of money.So my friends plz avoid too much cricket mad.

  67. What the hell.
    Selectors please understand,if we have to win thi world cup then players like jadeja,vijay,yusuf will make t a flop.and players like uthappa,irfan and badrinath should be given chances..
    Almost threefourth of the indians are waiting for the prescence of these players.
    and i think that the selection committee is becoming too partial for chennai players bcaus of srikkanth.
    Perfect team for world cup....
    Sehwag,Sachin,Uthappa,Raina(vc),Dhoni(c),badrinath,Irfan,Harbhajan,Zaheer,V.kumar,R.ashwin...

    CHECK OUT WITH THIS TEAM ATLEAST FOR ONE METCH DEAR..I BET U WITH THIS TEAM U WILL FORGET THE WORD LOSE...

    ReplyDelete
  68. i think these players(yusuf,vijay,jadeja etc) are good against a team like zimbabwe.......
    but to perform well against the strong teams of the world, we need some players(uthappa, irfu, raydu, maneesh pandey) who have really proved they are worth getting selected to the team......
    but still, the selectors stick to the players who have not performed well in the WC......
