MS Dhoni will captain India in the ICC World Cup 2015, while the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Mohammed Shami as expected find places in India’s 30-member squad.

Apart from the regular names, a few surprise exclusions were Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Gautam Gambhir, and Zaheer Khan. The five experienced pros, who were instrumental in India’s ICC World Cup 2011 campaign, found no place in India’s 30-member squad. On the other hand, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Kuldeep Yadav, Ashok Dinda, Parvez Rasool, and Sanju Samson all found places.
