ICC Champions Trophy: Raina, Gambhir dropped again as Rohit, Shami make cut

ICC Champions Trophy: Raina, Gambhir dropped again as Rohit, Shami make cut

Fit-again Rohit Sharma and Mohammed Shami were on Monday recalled to the 15-member Indian squad announced by BCCI Selection Committee Chairman M.S.K. Prasad for the ICC Champions Trophy, which commences from June 1 in England and Wales.

"I am coming to ODI cricket after a long gap of two years".

Unhappy with cricket's new revenue model, which considerably slashes their share from global events in the 2015-23 cycle, India failed to submit a squad by an April 25 deadline, triggering panic among advertisers.

The BCCI is furious at the ICC for amending its rules to divert power and money away from cricket's major powers: India, England and Australia.

Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik, Rishab Pant spinner Kldeep Yadav and fast bowlers Shardul Thakur have been kept as standby.

"As of now, we have picked Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma as openers and Ajinkya Rahane is the back-up opener", Prasad replied when asked about Gambhir. Reportedly, the ICC has offered India another $100 million but that is yet to be accepted by the BCCI.

The BCCI added in its statement: "The board unanimously authorised the acting honorary secretary of the BCCI to continue negotiations with the ICC in the best interest of the BCCI, while keeping its legal options open".

While no major changes have been made in the squad which enjoyed a successful 2016-17 home season, the selectors have chose to back the experienced Ajinkya Rahane over youngster Rishabh Pant.

India have finally announced their 15-man squad for the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy, and while the consistent performers have been rewarded with a place in the spot, a few cricketers have been unlucky to miss out.

"The injury was not serious". We always treat him more like a batsman, not many appreciate the phenomenal work he has done behind the wickets. "In fact his franchise has been magnanimous to accept our request of resting him", said Prasad.

India will be taking on Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa on 4th June, 8th June and 11th June respectively.
