ICC Champions Trophy: SWOT Analysis of India's squad

BCCI's current joint secretary, Amitabh Choudhary, has been given the task of cracking a deal with the ICC on its behalf while keeping the legal options open.

Squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey and Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The defending champions will be led by Virat Kohli, under whom India have not lost a series yet.

India retained the middle order they had drafted against England earlier in 2017.

India won the tournament last in 2013 after they beat the host nation, England in the highly contested final. However, Pakistan may not have beaten India in World Cup, but the scoreline reads 2-1 when it comes to Champions Trophy. However Kuldeep Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik and Shardul Thakur, have been put on standby, the ANI report said further. Dhawan is not a regular member of the Indian team in all formats and in fact has only played two worldwide matches - ODIs against England - in the past six months. There were lengthy discussions over some names, but we zeroed in on these 15 names. "We discussed Kuldeep Yadav who would have been a solid player". R Ashwin, who is now recovering from a sports hernia, and Ravindra Jadeja can perhaps expect part-time assistance from Yuvraj Singh, who kept his spot after his ODI career was given a re-start in the series against England in January. The franchise was magnanimous enough to listen to our request to rest him.

"We only talk about his batting form, he's an invaluable asset to this team", Prasad said.

The uncertainty stemmed from India's evident dissatisfaction with the new power and revenue-sharing model agreed by the International Cricket Council last month. "It's not like others who have undergone surgeries and are getting rehabilitated".

All seven other teams taking part in the tournament - England, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Australia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh - were announced by the April 25 deadline.
