Indian Team for the upcoming Twenty Twenty World Cup 2009 was announced on Monday. Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) will lead the team that will battle it out in England to defend the title. India won the first T20 World Cup that was held in South Africa in 2008.
No big surprises as the leading performers in the current IPL Season 2 are retained. However, T-20 World Cup Season 1 star Joginder Singh and Sreesanth (the duo that swung the match in India’s favor) could not make it to the squad. We will also miss the actions of Robin Uthappa, Dinesh Karthik and Munaf Patel.
Ace Bowler R P Singh made it to the top 15 because of its great performance in the current IPL Season 2 matches where he is playing for the Deccan Chargers. He is amongst the leading wicket takers as well in the IPL2.
Here is list of 15-members team announced for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2009 to be held in England:
