ICC World Twenty20 2012 July 18, 2012

Yuvraj, Mandeep Singh among World T20 probables

Yuvraj Singh has been included in India's preliminary squad of 30 players for the World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka this September. Mandeep Singh, the Punjab batsman who plays for Kings XI Punjab in the IPL, and Ambati Rayudu, the Hyderabad and Mumbai Indians batsman, are the only uncapped players in the list.

Mandeep has played 13 first-class matches for Punjab and North Zone, scoring 1074 runs at an average of 63. He had a successful IPL 2012 for Kings XI Punjab, finishing the season as the tenth-highest run-scorer, with 432 runs at a strike rate of 126.

This selection is also Rayudu's first call-up to an India shortlist since he returned to the BCCI's fold after playing the Indian Cricket League (ICL). He's played 47 matches for Mumbai Indians, making 1084 runs at a strike rate of 128. Rayudu was Mumbai Indians' second-highest run-scorer in 2012, scoring 333 in 15 innings.

This is Yuvraj's first official inclusion in an India squad following his treatment for a mediastinal seminoma, a rare germ cell cancer, in the United States. His last appearance for India was in a Test match against West Indies in Kolkata in November 2011, and his last one-day match was the World Cup final against Sri Lanka in April that year. Yuvraj had respiratory difficulties through 2011 and in May he withdrew from the ODI series in the West Indies due to an "illness". He toured England but had to return home after breaking his finger in the Nottingham Test and later played two home Tests against West Indies. However, he then pulled out of the ODI series against West Indies in November citing an "abnormal tumour in his lung".

Yuvraj had originally targeted the CB series in Australia for his return to international cricket. However, he was ruled out of that tournament and travelled to the US in late January for what was later revealed to be cancer treatment. Yuvraj spent three months in Indianapolis' IU Simon Cancer Centre and returned to India in early April 2012. He is currently training in Bangalore and said he believed Twenty20 was the best format for him to begin his return to competitive cricket.

It is understood Yuvraj aims to play at least two matches in the three-day Buchi Babu tournament in Chennai or the four-day KSCA League in Bangalore or the inter-district Katoch Shield tournament in Punjab.

Probables: MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav, Ashok Dinda, Ajinkya Rahane, Manoj Tiwary, Rahul Sharma, Vinay Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh, Robin Uthappa, Irfan Pathan, Yusuf Pathan, Mandeep Singh, Piyush Chawla, Ravindra Jadeja, Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu, Harbhajan Singh, Munaf Patel, Naman Ojha, Dinesh Karthik, Praveen Kumar, L Balaji.

Your squad will never play together. Zaheer khan need to be playing international matches till 2018 to be included here which is big doubt and this team may be possible only in 2018 when Dhoni retires after 2016 T20 world cup.

    @positive_critic: The named squad has 30 players. Many popular choices have been included such as . This includes guys lik Harbhajan, Rayudu, 2 Pathans, Karthik, Utappa, Mandeep, Yuvraj, Munaf & 2 Kumars.Most of them may not make it to the final XI or even 15.I think the international rules for T-20 demand a squad of 30 names from which the players have to be chosen. This will be the primary reason. England has chosen a squad of 30 as well. The selection of Yuvraj is a good morale booster for him. If he is not fir he will opt out. But Yuvraj at his full fitness will be in the XI, whether anyone likes it or not because he is the best Indian All Rounder.If Yuvraj is unfit, I am almost certain that Jadeja will play. That is why he is in 30. Raina, Kohli, Rohit deserve to play in the XI for their brilliant fielding alone + super S/R in batting.Yuvraj/Jadeja will play for the same reason. Fielding & catching is #1 priority in T-20. Irfan & Ashwin, ZAK & Yadev may be the 4 bowlers.

    @Positive_Critic on (July 19 2012, 06:59 AM GMT)..I think your thoughts selection of Yuvi are wrong. Selectors have named 30 probables and it should not be taken that Yuvi is right away selected for 2012 T20 world cup. Yuvi was just taken into probables list considering his contribution to Indian cricket, especially his role in win T20 world cup and ODI world cup. Just to show gratitude towards him selectors selected but they also said he has to prove to get into the team.You may ask why one spot wasted by taking him, but the T20 team is like what Dhoni thinks; he takes set of players he is comfortable with in context with implementation of his game plan.There are some set of 6 players already fixed by Dhoni, so out of 25 he has to select 5. So, its not a problem even if Yuvi named probable. It's well and good for India team if he proves himself if not he will sidelined just like what is been happening with Harbhajan singh. Let' see if Bhajji and Yuvi can come back. Time will tell.

    That gives us a 6 batsman, 2 all rounders at 7 & 8 , 3 seam bowlers with kohli providing option of bowling his Mohindar Amarnath style slow medium pacesrs and 2 regular spinners. Shewag , Yuvi and Raina providing the cover if one of the regular bowlers have a bad day.

  • POSTED BY Positive_Critic on | July 19, 2012, 7:59 GMT

    Selectors did what was required to win the heart of the emotional indian people. Selecting Yuvi clearly signals we have played into the hands of emotions rather than practicality. Also people who hope that Yuvi will be a part of the T20 WC team are riding on emotions rather than realizing the fact that Yuvi is not match fit.

    Feeling sad for Yuvi is one thing and expecting him to be the same force as he was in 2011 or 2007 is expecting too much, which is not unusual for indian fans.

    I really do feel Yuvi need's to get match fit before being a part of the national team, in any format.

    On one hand, MSD says that we 'No room for sentiments' and on the other hand here we are hailing the selectors decision to include Yuvi, purely on sentiments. Selectors did it intentionally to win the hearts of people.

    And on the other hand look at the professional approach of the English Authorities, they did not play in to the mood swings of KP.

You have effectively 8 batsmen + Ashwin and 5 bowlers + the part time tweakers of Raina and Sehwag.

    30 players have been named to avoid any criticism. Of all these guys, only Mandeep Singh & Rayudu are the new comers.Mandeep may not make it to final 15.I think Yuvraj's selection will be subject to him being fit after a serious illness. He is one genuine all rounder in the side. Jadeja might be in 15 because Dhoni supports him for his fielding.But the squad with everybody being fit is likely: Sehwag, Gambhir, Kohli, Raina, Rohit, Yuvraj. Dhoni, Ashwin,ZAK, Yadev, Vinay Kumar, M.Patel, Rahane or Mandeep, Irfan Pathan or Jadeja, Utappa or Karthik(WK).

    Why All rounder Jadeja again????? We hav seen so many matches for his all rounder capabilities.

    Are they selecting to team for India to WIN? or they are selecting the team to give chance to someone like Jadeja again and again. Same with harbajan.

    Eveyone has to think, whether selction of Jadeja is making any sense?????????

    Selection Board, Please select the team to win and include those who performs or promised to perform. Enough chances given Jadeja. I am fan of Indian Team, not an individual player. Everyone here wants India to Win.

    MS Goni was one of the highest wicket takers last year in the domestic T20, don't really see why he's not in the squad and someone like Balaji and Munaf patel (two spinners) are in there. At least Goni can go upto the mid-130s unlike these two.

    I am surprised that everyone suggests that Yuvraj is an automatic selection. There is no question that he was the top performer during WC 2011 and has everyone's good wishes for his recovery and return to the India squad. But I think it would be too emotional and presumptious to believe he is ready to play in a World Cup. I am sure the selectors will be closely observing his performance in the side matches he will be playing.

    With all due respect to Yuvraj's fight against cancer, I believe his selection is more emotional then logical. We all know that Yuvraj's famous struggles with his fitness discipline in the past, now being away from the game for so long will require him to be 200% of what he was to get a look see in the squad. In addition to that even if he is fit to play by the time T20 WC kicks off, how will you judge his form, based on a WC he played a year ago?? Wishing all the best to him in other walks of life and cricket but I don't see him coming back to playing professional cricket, unless India keeps selecting him on emotional basis.

    @ CorneredTiger92-09: And we wish we had a fast bowling attack like that of Pakistan in past (though I think nowadays Pak's spinners are doing excellent job whereas fast bowlers are ordinary especially after Amir, Asif and Akhtar's departure). But what matters in sub-continent is how good your spinners are and NO DOUBT Pak would be highly ranked in that dept. having awesome trio of Ajmal, Afridi and Hafeez. Having said that, I believe Pak have good chance of making it to semi-finals at least. Other teams might be :- SA, WI, India and SL (I have a gut feeling that SL might surprise everyone by getting eliminated earlier - No offence to SL Fans)

    Friends, please re-look the list. It is very clear, selectors have already selected 15 man squad for T20 WC and hand picked other players. I don't see major changes to current squad playin in S.L. with exception to Yuvi who might get an emotional nod at expense of Tiwary or Rahane. Players like N.Ohja,Kartik, Mandep, Balaji,Rayudu, Dhawan, Chawla do not even have 1% chance of making it to squad. Unless Ashwin, Ohja is injured Bhaji wont get chance and add to it his recent performance have not been breath taking. It would be foolish to think he might get chance coz of reputation. Same with Munaf & Praveen unless major injury to any other so called fast bowlers these two don't have chance. If Irfan doesn't utilize his chance now then Vinay will comeback with Yusuf or Ravindra taking all rounder spot with one of Pragyan / Rahul sitting out. So, Good Luck with your predictions.

What did he do to deserve a place is quite debatable. Again why Chawla ? He just had 1 good match ? huh!!! Return of Balaji ? He is almost useless with the bat, one of the poor fielders ever since he got operated and finally if he is smashed to all parts of the ground he will be a burden to the captain. @CorneredTiger92-09: Appreciate your honesty sire.

    Gambhir Sehwag Kohli Rohit Yuvraj (If not fit, Rahane) Raina Dhoni Irfan Ashwin Zaheer Umesh/Dinda other four overs could be bowled by Raina, Sehwag, Kohli, Sharma, Yuvraj Uthappa Yusuf Ojha

    Harbhajan Singh, Munaf Patel, Robin Uthappa, Rahul Sharma, Piyush Chawla, Yusuf Pathan and Shikar Dhawan are over rated and not long term bets. They should be omitted from the list altogether. Attitude, Fitness and limited to sub-continental-dead pitches- ability being the key reasons.

    I'm pleased to hear that Yuvraj has recovered sufficiently to be back training and to overcome cancer is a huge achievement that puts cricket into perspective. This will sound harsh I know but now that he is back, the selection criteria should apply equally to all players regardless of past performances and sentiment should be put aside. I would have thought that domestic cricket would be the best format to return to competitve cricket. This way Yuvraj can prove form and fitness and there would be no doubt that his inclusion would be based on merit.

    Happy to see Yuvi,Balaji,Rayudu in the initial squad. But surprising why the selectors still depending on Bajji,Jadeja,Yousuf,Chawla while we are having many quality and inform domestic players. Srilanka is spinner friendly pitches as India.My Final squad would be MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag(Bat/Bowl), Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma(Bat/Bowl), Suresh Raina(Bat/Bowl), R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav, Zaheer Khan, Yuvraj Singh(Bat/Bowl), Irfan Pathan(Bowling Allrounder), Shikhar Dhawan, Ambati Rayudu(Reserved Keeper), L Balaji.. I feel this would be a good team with a mix of Regular Bowlers,Slow bowlers and hard hitting batsmen.

    Welcome back Yuvi. Would be too much to ask him to start performing right away though, I think he should not be subjected to the pressures of a WC right away. 15 should be: Rahane,Sehwag,Gambhir,Kohli,Raina,Dhoni,Yusuf,Ashwin,Harbhajan,Munaf,Zaheer, Irfan,Rayudu (reserve WK too),Yadav,Uthappa.

    Praveen Kumar should squeak in , if somebody above misses out, But I have a feeling Ravinder Jadeja will end up being selected again.

  • POSTED BY abhijeet1in on | July 18, 2012, 9:31 GMT

    I mean no malice but are people sure that Yuvi is fit enough? He just came out of cancer, not a cold. Also Rahul Sharma was less than ordinary against west indies A and really does not have a strong domestic or IPL season to back him. Thats definitely one poor selection. Amit Mishra does not seem like a team player but at this hour he is without a doubt the better leg spinner.

    As Usual, Strong batting line up of MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina and a reliable bowling attack of R Ashwin, Zaheer Khan, Umesh Yadav and Praveen Kumar.Probably anyone of pathan brothers and R Jadeja would complete the Team. Inclusion of Yuvraj is a Nice move by BCCI, though he is not gonna be in the playing 11. But what I don't understand is why the selectors still include these Vinay Kumar and Piyush chawla.

Still Praveen and Balaji should get the chance with irfan in the tours outside subcontinent.My Final Squad: 1) Dhoni 2)Gambhir 3) Sehwag 4) Raina 5) Kohli 6) Rohit 7) Yuvraj 8) Uttappa 9) Zaheer 10) Umesh 11) Dinda 12) Irfan 13) Ashwin 14) Rahul 15) Ojha. Still i doubt kohli's ability for t-20 but his one-day form selects him there in squad. And for ICC they should give oppurtunity for 17 players in squad becuase if there are any injuries players will be ready in the squad instead of making flying the replacement players some times it took week to reach a player in destined country.
