The 2015 ICC World Cup is scheduled to start in nine days and the Indian Cricket Team is facing a major dilemma.
Four members out of the 15-man squad are unfit.
On any other day, this would bother the fans, but this time around, they might actually be enjoying Team India’s misery. Speculations are rife that Yuvraj Could Be Included In Team Indian Squad.
Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja are the four unfit players. This clearly spells trouble to the already struggling Indian bowling line up.
Initially when it was announced that Yuvraj would be left out of the World Cup squad, it meant that India were one batsman short and losing out on a fifth bowler. However, with concerns surrounding injuries, Yuvraj’s inclusion could pay off.
The swashbuckling southpaw has been in outstanding form scoring three back-to-back centuries in the Ranji Trophy tournament for Punjab. This might force the selection committee to make a U-turn on its earlier decision of excluding the Punjab lad.
The 33-year-old batsman showed his calibre in the 2011 ICC World Cup. His performance with the bat and ball won Team India the tournament, making them a two-time Wold Cup holder.
Other than Yuvraj Singh, Murali Vijay might get a call to the Indian team, too, in case Rohit Sharma is deemed unfit. Vijay was seen in sensational form during the recently concluded Test series against Australia.
Ishant Sharma, who is recovering from ankle injury, could be left out of the squad and be replaced by either Mohit Sharma or Dhawal Kulkarni.
Yuvraj, particularly, has received massive support from fans not only in India, but in different parts of the world. His #LoutegaYuvraj trend might see the day of light again with this news reaching his fans.
