One-day Team Declared for India Vs England Series
Indian selection committee declared Indian squad for first 3 matches of upcoming India Vs England series. Cheteshwar Pujara is new face in one-day squad. He replaced Virender Sehwag whose batting is falling down day by day. I think it was good call by selectors. Although Gambhir is also not batting well since last year but it could be danger step to replace both opener.
Cheteshwar Pujara is really batting well since long time. He has proved himself in domestic cricket as well test matches. Now it’s turn to proof his ability in short format of cricket. Hope he will bat well in one-day series as well. Dhoni got another chance to prove himself as captain. Rest other members of squad who played against Pakistan are carried forward to this series. Teams are:-
MS Dhoni(Captain), Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Cheteshwar Pujara, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Ashok Dinda, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar(My favorite these days), Amit Mishra, Ishant Sharma & Shami Ahmed.
