Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was on Wednesday named captain of the Punjab Ranji Trophy team that also included India middle-order batsman Yuvraj Singh.

 

The state senior selection committee met at PCA stadium, Mohali and announced a 15-member squad for the upcoming domestic season.

 

Kings Punjab XI opener Mandeep Singh, who had impressed one and all with his good batting in the IPL season-5, has been named Harbhajan’s deputy.

The players have been asked to report to the camp on October 8. The camp will take place under the watchful eyes of Harvinder Singh, the bowling coach of Punjab team.

 

“Apart from the camp, the players will play two 2-day matches to assess their fitness level,” said M P Pandove, Honorary Secretary, PCA.

 

The selection committee also named the under-25 squad, which will be captained by Taruwar Kohli. The other members of the team include Ravi Inder Singh, Simrat Bawa, Gurkirat Walia, Himanshu Chawla, Gitansh Khera, Gurinder Singh, Yogesh Kumar, Rahul Singla, Beant Singh, Deepak Bansal, Kamal Passi, Amit Prashar, Preet Kamal and Sharad Lumba.
