Former wicket-keeper batsman and 1983 World Cup winner Syed Kirmani expressed satisfaction over the final selection of team India for the ICC World Cup 2015 but said that Yuvraj Singh, who led India to ICC World Cup 2011 win should have been included. 

The selectors met in Mumbai today to finalize the 15 member for the World Cup and the tri-series that’ll take place before it. Overall, the squad consists of 6 batsmen, 1 wicket-keeper batsmen, 4 fast-bowlers and 4 all-rounders. BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel also clarified that Ravindra Jadeja, who is currently nursing a shoulder injury, will get fully fit in a span of 10 days from now and will feature in the latter part of the tri-series featuring hosts Australia and England. 

Speaking to news agency ANI, Kirmani was quoted in saying:

“Well balanced team. Satisfied with it. 

“But if it had been my team I would have had Yuvraj Singh in it.”

To manage the workload of the fast-bowlers, selectors have added Mohit Sharma and Dhawal Kulkarni to the squad for the tri-series so that Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma and Mohammad Shami can go fresh into the World Cup. India play their first match against Pakistan at Adelaide on February 15th.
