India really prepared for 2011?

The last game between India and Sri Lanka saw a very poor performance from the Indian Batsmen. Yuvraj Singh, the highest scorer, scoring 38 runs.

T20 WC squad: India

Just when one third of the Indian Premier League is completed, Kris Srikkanth and co decided the final 15 players for the twenty twenty world Cup which will take place in West Indies starting April 29th.

It was a tough job to pick the 15 as there are many good players in the 30 man probables.

But, some good performers till now in the IPL- Robin Uthappa, Saurabh Tiwary, Murali Karthik, Amit Mishra, Virat Kohli have not been considered.

The team is placed in group C along with the South Africans and Afghanisthan. Key players will be Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan who were missed in World Cup 2008.

Squad:

MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Piyush Chawla, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Vinay Kumar, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ravindra Jadeja, Praveen Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, Yusuf Pathan.

Ravi Jadeja's appeal rejected

The former Rajasthan Royals Player, Ravindra Jadeja’s appeal against a 1 year ban from the tournament, for talks with other franchises without even updating the contract with Rajasthan Royals has been rejected by the so called Lalit Modi’s team.

Jadeja’s contract already elapsed December last year. Ravi has claimed that he had taken BCCI’s permission to negotiate with other franchises.

An IPL official said-

He (Manohar) did not want to set a wrong precedent, so he dismissed the request. So Jadeja now cannot play in the IPL (this year).

Jadeja received the ban was last month where he was found to have talks with other franchises.

Jadeja out of IPL 2010

Indian T20 star Ravindra Jadeja now is in a position to miss out the IPL this year. Ravi has been caught by the IPL as his deadline passed yesterday for the final squad lists. Jadeja played for the Royals in the IPL 1 and 2.

Jadeja was selected to play in for Rajasthan Royals. He belonged to the U-19 camp. All the Under 19 players were signed for two year contract but Jadeja signed only for a year. So, now he is nowhere in IPL for this year.

Even more worse is that reports found Jadeja negotiating with other franchises which has official not been confirmed. But Ravidra says he was unaware of the reasons why he is not in the Rajasthan squad.

But, good news for the young player is that he can play in the IPL this year if he appeals to the governing council of the IPL.
