Piyush Chawla and R Ashwin also found favour with?the selectors, while the rest of the squad has?more or less the same names who?represented India consistently over the last one-and-a-half to two years.
What do you think about the selection? Is?this team?capable of repeating the historic 1983 victory? Can these 15?bring the World Cup home?
