Teams anounce World T20 probables
India WT20 Squad
Jan 17, 2014The Indian cricket team selectors Friday named youngsters Sanju Samson, Stuart Binny and seniors Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh among the 30 probables for the Twenty20 World Cup in Bangladesh March 16-April 6. Discarded India openers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir were overlooked, as well as Pathan brothers Irfan and Yusuf. Gambhir has 932 runs in 37 T20 matches with seven 50s, which is highest among the Indian batsmen.
The MS Dhoni versus Delhi openers rift might be a reason for both Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir not finding a place in the team. The relationship between Dhoni and Virender Sehwag reached a nadir during India's 2011-12 tour to Australia, when press conferences were used to take pot shots at each other. Dhoni's statement that the Sehwag, Gambhir and Tendulkar trio are slow, dragged the usually quiet Gambhir into the midst of things. After both were dropped from the Indian team, and the selectors picked only two regular openers - Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay - for the tour of South Africa, Dhoni "named" Gautam Gambhir as the team's third opener while addressing the media ahead of the team's departure, almost mocking the senior opener.
India probables: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Vinay Kumar, Stuart Binny, Mohit Sharma, Kedar Jadhav, Yuvraj Singh, Amit Mishra, Rajat Bhatia, Sanju Samson, Ishwar Pandey, Umesh Yadav, Unmukt Chand, Mandeep Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Varun Aaron, Shahbaz Nadeem, Parthiv Patel, Karn Sharma.

BCB promises stellar WT20
Aug 4, 2013The logo for the 2014 ICC World Twenty20, inspired by both the Bangladesh flag and the country’s iconic waterways, was launched in Dhaka exactly a year ahead of the tournament final. According to the ICC, it uses the colours of the Bangladesh flag with splashes of blue which represents Bangladesh’s iconic waterways. The T is made up of cricket stumps and the 0 in the T20 represents the cricket ball complete with Bangladeshi green seam, while the white in the design lends an energetic, friendly and youthful feel to the logo. It will be the biggest multi-nation tournament ever held in Bangladesh in terms of participating teams, as 16 men’s teams — 10 full members and six qualifiers — and eight women’s teams will take part in the mega event which will be played from March 16 to April 6 next year in four venues across the country.
