    Smile ::: Indian Team for 2011 World Cup :::




    India have named Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir in their 15-man squad for the World Cup.

    Tendulkar flew back to India after sustaining a hamstring injury during India's one-run victory against South Africa on Saturday in the second one-day international.

    Earlier, Sehwag and Gambhir had pulled out of the series following injuries to them and the bowling attack in the one-day series was also left depleted after injuries to Praveen Kumar and Shantha Sreesanth.

    Sreesanth was omitted from the World Cup squad, but Kumar was selected along with Tendulkar, Sehwag and Gambhir, with the quartet expected to be fully fit in time for the tournament which begins on February 19.

    Chairman of selectors K Srikkanth claimed that India have chosen the "best combination possible".

    Srikkanth expressed hope that the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team would win the World Cup, carrying on the success of the team at home and abroad over recent years.

    "We have had a thorough discussion among the five selectors," Srikkanth said.

    "We have picked up the best combination taking into consideration factors like wicket condition and the strength and weakness of the opposition. This is a very well balanced team."

    Srikkanth admitted there will be pressure on India since they are playing in front of a home crowd.

    "There will be an enormous pressure playing at home, but greatness lies is handling the pressure and winning the cup," he added.

    When asked about the injury concerns dogging the team, Srikkanth said: "Injury is part and parcel of cricket. Every team is hit by injury concerns, So the challenge is to be positive and perform well."
    After the news of his omission from the World Cup squad, S Sreesanth poured his heart out on Twitter.

    "I am heartbroken, I believed in myself," he tweeted. "It's lack of faith that makes people afraid of meeting challenges, and I believed in myself," he wrote.

    "Thanks for all your support and I will keep giving my very best to the game no matter how small my chances are. I truly believe in God," he added.

    India squad: MS Dhoni (capt & wk), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Praveen Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel, Piyush Chawla, R Ashwin.

    Its look ok to me now....barring Munaf and Piyush Chawla. I would have certainly wished another batsman perhaps in place of third spinner...Rohit Sharma deserved to be in. Munaf Patel...well even I could blow him to bits even at this time now. By sheer luck he got those two wickets in the last game against SA and got selected....To be frank I want bowlers taking wickets not batsmen giving it to them.

    Ashwin is a good choice...very good infact....I am sure he is going to win matches for India in the coming world cup more than Harbhajan even.....I am sure...!!!!
