Finally, the list for the Indian’s champion trophy is out. It is a 15-member tough squad.
There has been much hullabaloo during this team fixing. The Rohit Sharma is making a comeback in ODI format after October where he has played against New Zealand. He will be seen doing the opening with Shikhar Dhawan in the absence of KL Rahul.
For veterans, MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh, this could be their last Champions trophy.
However, there are few players who despite performing extremely well at the domestic stage couldn’t make it to the ICC Champions Trophy 2017. Online Cricket Betting India at 24sevenbet
Let’s find out who are these unlucky players.
#1 Rishabh Pant
After making his debut for the Indian under nineteen cricket team, he has mesmerised many with his batting skills. As he has delivered huge strides due to which he was even included in the T20I series against England last year. In 2017, he made a debut in T20I in Bengaluru. Not only this, he has shown a mind blowing performance in the IPL as well.
In fact, we feel he should have been used more wisely by Delhi Daredevils for innings opening. But not to forget his knock against Gujarat Lions at 97. Many were expecting him to be a part of the Champions Trophy, but it seems like he has to wait for more this opportunity.
#2 Kuldeep Yadav
This young and dynamic 22-years old player has made his debut back in 2014 in the U-19 world cup. He is a left-arm bowler who has impressed the audience with his skills equally at both first-class domestic tournaments and Indian Premier League as well. It seems like he has the innate talent to pick up wickets at crucial stages, apart from containing the opposition’s run-rate as well. How to Win Real Money through Online Cricket Betting?
He has amused the audience with his performance while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders this season. Also, has made his test debut in India this year against Australia and picked up four wickets within first inning itself. But he has to wait for more ODI.
#3 Dinesh Karthik
He is an impressive wicket-keeper from Tamil Nadu who did really well at domestic level. He has achieved the status of leading run takers in the Ranji Trophy 2017 and other tournaments that succeeded it. He continued this form in the IPL as well and show a stability in his performance while playing in middle order for Gujarat Lions. Back in 2004, he has made a debut in ODI series as the youngest player. Thus he has the experience in this format of the game and would have benefitted the squad if given a chance.
#4 Gautam Gambhir
The veteran might have felt bad when selectors didn’t choose him in his current form, despite the success he has achieved in his cricket career. In the IPL series, he has proved himself as one of the best captains and obtained the winning title while playing for Kolkata Knight Riders. Moreover, under his leadership, KKR has shown a strong performance and with this form, they are on their way to achieving the third IPL title as well. India’s Top Online Cricket Betting Site
As KL Rahul is missing in this ODI squad, so there were speculations that Gambhir might be considered by the selectors. But selectors chose Shikhar Dhawan over him considering his latest success in ICC tournaments.
#5 Yuzvendra Chahal
He was known as the international chess player until he has made a cricket debut in 2009. He came into the limelight in the world of cricket when he got a huge success as a part of Royal Challengers a few years back. He was praised for his wicket-taking skills during the year 2015 and 2016 by teammates.
Consequently, he was called in India for ODIs and T20Is last year to play against Zimbabwe. Also, he was included in the T20I against England where he played decently well. Despite such a solid profile in spinning, he was not involved in ODIs by the selectors. Top 5 Cricket Betting Tips to Increase Your Profit
