The Indian Selectors have ignored the veteran trio of Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan from the 30-man probables for the upcoming Champions Trophy to be played in June in the UK. The ODI future of Sehwag and Zaheer now remains uncertain and there could be speculations about their retirement in the coming days.
The Selectors have included quite some rookies although it is doubtful that they would find a place in the final squad. The rookie players include India U-19 Captain Unmukt Chand, J&K off-spinner Parvez Rasool, Kedar Jadhav and pacers Ishwar Pandey and Siddhart Kaul to name a few.
