The defending champions of the Champions Trophy are finally back into the picture. Where it was seeming really difficult for BCCI to announce the Indian squad for the tournament due to the politics going on with the International Cricket Council. The matter now seems to have dissolved as the Board of Control of Cricket in India, today announced the 15 member team for the upcoming Champions trophy. Rumors were that Gambhir might find his way inside the team this time whereas a question mark was thought to be present on whether Yuvraj will be there or not.
Well, sweeping the rumors off, Gambhir's name is not on the list, but Yuvraj has managed to embed his. According to the experts, this squad seems to be pretty good for India to defend its title or maybe to tear apart the opposition into pieces.
Let's have look at the players that made themselves into the list.
A counter-attacking skipper like Virat is probably the best thing that can happen to the Indian team. He knows how to rotate the field and how to provoke the opposition's bowler to perform a false note.
After getting free from the weight of being the captain and handling criticism from the country of 130 crore people, this wolf can now slay the opposition with his helicopter blades, easily!
Question- Who is a better 200 scorer than Rohit Sharma?
Answer- Not born yet.
A beast with the stance of a lion, England should really watch out for him.
Apart from being one of the best Indian openers, this rowdy batsman can easily take down any bowler! Well, this is not something that I am saying, go through the name of the last Man of the Tournament.
This man is born to nail the opposition on foreign turfs. Again, check the records!
A good back-up is what we need, right? Well, here's a guy who can take care of the failing middle-order, even with his left hand. Except, he's right handed.
A terrific fielder, a super bowler and a man who can do things with his bat.
Call him the next Kumble or the first Ashwin, this spinner makes sure that every prey of his suffer a fumble.
The perfect man to get the team a maiden over, wicket-maiden too.
The emerging hope for Indian cricket in the arena of bowling. This young guy deserves to make it into the team without a doubt!
Master of pin-point deliveries and good lengths.
The fastest from the Indian side, beware!
A marvelous fielder, a humongous hitter and more importantly, the one who is just too good with hat-tricks.
This rising star also tells a lot about the strengths that an Indian Batsman holds.
