    Thumbs up India name World Twenty20 squad ..!!

    RP Singh

    Paceman RP Singh was on Monday rewarded for his consistent performance in

    the ongoing IPL with a recall while fellow speedster Munaf

    Patel was dropped from India's 15-member squad for next month's Twenty20

    World Cup in England.

    Wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik, who figured in India's squad that

    played the last Twenty20 in New Zealand in February end, has also been

    dropped from the squad which has no major surprises. Hard-hitting batsman

    Robin Uthappa has also been omitted.

    India, who won the inaugural edition of the championship in South Africa in

    2007, will be led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni while Virender Sehwag has been

    named his deputy.

    The squad includes five specialist batsmen, five specialist pacers, two

    spinners, two all-rounders and a wicket-keeper in Dhoni.

    The selectors had earlier announced a list of 30 probables for the event to be

    held in England from June 5-21 and today pruned it to the final 15. All

    participating teams have to submit the final squad by May 5 as per the ICC


    As expected, there are no major surprises in the squad which was picked up

    by the selection panel headed by former India captain Krishnamachari

    Srikkanth via teleconference.

    Among others who could not make it to the final 15 are Tamil Nadu opener M

    Vijay,Mumbai trio of Ajinkya Rahane, Dhawal Kulkarni and Abhishek Nayar,

    Tamil Nadu batsman S Badrinath, Delhi batsman Virat Kohli, Bengal duo of

    Manoj Tiwary and Wriddhiman Saha, Haryana leggie Amit Mishra, Tamil Nadu

    pacer L Balaji and Madhya Pradesh stumper Naman Ojha.

    Tamil Nadu off-spinner R Ashwin, who was named back-up for Harbhajan

    Singh, also failed to survive the pruning exercise.

    Youngsters Abhishek Raut, who plays for Rajasthan Royals, and Bangalore's

    Shrivats Goswami also could not make the cut despite their decent showing

    in the Indian Premier League.

    Joginder Sharma, who is remembered for his last over in the inaugural edition

    of the Twenty20 World Cup, could not find a place in the 30-member list of

    probables, along with Piyush Chawla and S Sreesanth, who is recovering from

    a back injury.

    Sachin Tendulkar had opted out of the Twenty20 World Cup in 2007 and

    continued to remain away from the shortest format of the game despite his

    good form in recent time.


    Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh

    Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Yusuf Pathan, Rohit Sharma, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer

    Khan, Ishant Sharma, Praveen Kumar, Rudra Pratap Singh, Ravindra Jadeja,

    Pragyan Ojha and Irfan Pathan.
