India has announced their 30 probables for world T20 tournament to be held in England. They has left out S.shreeshanth, Piyush chawla, Joginder sharma and Ajit agarkar. Shreeshanth is out of play for 3 months due to the back injury and I don't consider Ajit agarkar as a T20 player but they should have included Piyush chawla and Joginder sharma.

Barring Sreesanth who was out of the team...all others deserve to be included in at least this least of 30 players. Ajit Agarkar is a tailor made player for T20 but what can he do if not given a chance....Piyush Chawala is also an emerging allrounder...he can bat at crucial time with amazing temerament...Though, I think Joginder Sharma was the worst ever discovery of India in last five years...never the less, he should be included...I remember his face during the Misbah onslaught in the final.

Guess what! Both of them were involved in getting Misbah out and making India win 20-20 World Cup two years ago. both are gone this time, J. Sharma and S Sreesanth!

I think these players have been rightly dropped. Piyush chawla is more of a traditional bowler and is better suited to the longer versions of the game. Joginder sharma was clobbered all over the park in the last world cup. Ajit agarkar didnt perform upto the mark the last time round. He was the senior bowler and was supposed to lead the attack but he failed to do so. And sreesanth is injured. So the exclusions are justified.

Well i think IPL performances will play a major role in fine-tuning the list. Who knows based on IPL performances there may be surprise inclusions. Lets wait and watch!

This time the 30 man priliminary squad has rightly been declared considerin their form and physical fitness. But here the question is going to be who among these players will make it to the 15 member squad. The further selection will be made on the basis of these players' performance in the IPL. But with the name of Dhoni, Shewag, Yuvraj, Gambhir, Yusuf Pathan, Irfan, Harbhajan, Zaheer, Ishant, Utthppa, Rohit sharma, Dinesh kartik certainly gonna be in the 15 member team, the remaining 18 players will have to fight for the remaining 3 places.

I am not very much disapointed with the squad. You know after IPL we have hell lot of players who can play in 20-20 WC. But with Indian form in this form of game, I do think that this time SA's are more probabal than India!
