The Board of Control for Cricket in India on Monday named a 15-member squad for the ICC Champions Trophy, to be played in England and Wales from June 1. The 15-member squad, led by Virat Kohli, sees the return of Rohit Sharma and Mohammed Shami, while no new faces were introduced as the rest of the team is largely what it was for the last ODI series played by India, against England in January 2017.The naming of the team as scheduled for April 25, but was delayed as the BCCI got into a wrangle with the International Cricket Council (ICC) about the revamped revenue share formula.

Well, sweeping the rumors off, Gambhir’s name is not on the list, but Yuvraj has managed to embed his. According to the experts, this squad seems to be pretty good for India to defend its title or maybe to tear apart the opposition into pieces.

Let’s have look at the players that made themselves into the list.
