India meduim pacer Ishant Sharma has been dropped from India‘s squads for Asia Cup and T20 World Cup in Bangladesh. The National Selection Committee which met in Bangalore also axed middle-order batsman and MS Dhoni’s confidate Suresh Raina from the squad announced for Asia Cup, but has been retained for World T20 next month.
