    Don't Really Have One ...
    Location:
    India

    MS Dhoni (capt & wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Suresh Raina, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Akshar Patel, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Stuart Binny

    Well I got 13/15 spot on. NoHit being in the side is kinda a no-brainer, as selection panels after selection panels have loved him. Presumably he is sleeping with them, or Srinivasan or Meiyyapan, or all of them together, I don't know. Ah well he had to be there, we all knew it, just desperately hoped he would not be.

    But Stuart Binny ... WTF !!

    Thats a place in the 15 wasted. Vijay could have featured in the 15 ahead of Binny. Lets not forget Vijay is in great form, and he is quite a solid T20 batsman

    All said and done can this side win the WC ... yes, but one has to feel that those who feature in Row 1 will have a lot more to do with us winning that those in Row 2, and it will take a herculean effort from those in Row 1.

    Slectors have robbed Varun Aaron again based on his test form. How the fearsome tweak does Binny get into the team?

    There is no need on 3 spinners in the team as Australia pitches are in favour of pace. I dont see any requirement of Axar Patel as there are already 2 quality spinners and batsmens like Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma can bowl some overs in middle.

    I was very happy that Yuvi will be given a place in this team but Binny took away his chance. The people here around me say that Binny's father Rozer Binny who was in selectors team has recommended his son for selection. And selectors honoured his request.​

    Binny's selection:
    All-rounder who can bat a bit. Plus we need a seam bowling AR in Australia not a spinning AR. Binny is quite capable with the bat as well. Of the 4 bowlers selected, none can bat barring Bhuvi. But Bhuvi can't win you a match when you need 20 off 12,something that Binny can very well do.

    Axar is more like a cover for Jadeja, in case Jadeja gets injured or is woefully out of form. Axar's batting is much better than Sir RJ and its possible that he may get a few more games.

    I was surprised at Mohit's exclusion. He looks sharp and bowls well and could have been an added advantage in the conditions Down Under. I didn;t quite expect Umesh Yadav to make the cut, but nothing can be done now.

    ^^It is TOI, so believe their stories at your own risk.

    But if there is any truth to that, then I sympathize with both Vijay and MSD.

    I'm okay with the squad. Rayudu, Binny and the godsend Ishant Sharma. These three are very lucky to be part of that squad.

    80% of the squad is pretty reasonable and fair.

    Boss Mahendra Singh Dhoni Hints Virat Kohli Has to 'Sacrifice' No. 3 Position - World Cup 2015 News


    This is a bit worrying, forcing Kohli to play at no.4.
    Once again horrifying flashes of 2007, where Sachin was forced to play at no.4 by Chappell

    Why ? What exactly is the logic behind this ? I genuinely want to know

    I don't see why a player like Kohli should be warming the seat instead of being out in the middle controlling the game.

    Signs of Mohit replacing Ishant in the WC squad ?

    India face issue of Ishant Sharma knee niggle | Cricket | ESPN Cricinfo

    That reply indeed is very mysterious, considering MSD is usually very straight forward with his words.
