Rohit Sharma, Shami Return To Indian Squad For Champions Trophy

Rohit Sharma, Shami Return To Indian Squad For Champions Trophy

The BBCI have called off their threat not to send a team to the Champions Trophy, however, where they will seek to defend their title.

Mohammad Shami, returning to one-day worldwide squad after two years, said he is eager to do his best in the upcoming Champions Trophy. "There were many challenges in picking a squad for England but we think this is the best one". He has been kept on standby along with Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik but in a short tournament like the Champions Trophy where a team will play five matches at the most, it is highly unlikely they will be required.

Rohit, who has recovered from a thigh injury, made a comeback as selectors gave weightage to his round the year performance. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is expected to don the big gloves and also is the sixth batsman in the side. "As of now, we have picked Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma as openers and Ajinkya Rahane is the back-up", Prasad replied when asked about Gambhir. "You are aware that the squad representing India at the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 was to be submitted by 25th April 2017 but the squad has not even been selected as yet". There are no surprises in the squad but a lot of youngsters who have performed well lately in the domestic season as well as IPL have not been included. "Please convene a meeting of the selection committee for selecting the squad immediately", the CoA had instructed Chaudhury in a letter.

India squad for Champions Trophy: V Kohli (c), S Dhawan, R Sharma, A Rahane, MS Dhoni (wk), Y Singh, K Jadhav, H Pandya, R Ashwin, R Jadeja, M Shami, U Yadav, B Kumar, Y Bumrah, M Pandey. Though we haven't seen some good spells from him this IPL but we are sure that he will be performing well on England's fast pitches.
