    Would be interesting if India do indeed pull out as ICC will be financially devastated!

    So actually in reality, ICC won't allow that to happen as it'd be like committing financial suicide.

    More people watch cricket in India than rest of the world put together...

    Lol they are not pulling out. This is just to bargain for the Big 3 restructure

    It's amazing to think that India's weakest point are their opening batsmen. Like the one time we have a big hitting fast bowling all rounder and arguably the best death bowler in the game we're stuck worrying about the thought of possibly having our opening stands being like 50/0 in 15 overs lol. My team for CT would be this:

    Rohit Sharma
    Shikar Dhawan
    Virat Kohli (c)
    Yuvraj Singh / MS Dhoni
    Yuvraj Singh / MS Dhoni
    Kedhar Jhadav / Suresh Raina
    Hardhik Pandya
    Ravindra Jadeja
    Ashwin / Random Other spinner / Another pacer.
    Umesh Yadav / Shammi / Bhuveneshwar Kumar
    Jasprit Bumrah.

    What's the deal with Yuvraj? Is he aiming to play the next World Cup?

    India's squad announced: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Yuvraj Singh, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Mohammed Shami

    Dhawan ahead of Gambhir and Pant is a joke right now. Rahane ahead of Gambir and Pant is also a joke.

    Dhawan hasn't performed in ages... are they picking him just based on his heroics in the last edition?

    Of the XV picked, the openers are not in top form- Dhawan has played second fiddle to the mighty Warner. He won't be so lucky with an out-of-form, converted opener alongside. That's Rohit Sharma- struggling for form now. Pandey is a good choice, and should come in at four. Kohli is struggling for form, so is Dhoni. At least Dhoni can flip his form around, Kohli less so. Kedar can strike, and has proven in ODIs that he can also build. Rahane can stay on the bench or as a sub-fielder.

    The pace bowlers seem in form, but patchy- Bhuvi and Umesh have been striking often, but Jazz has not got as many. Pandya is not even a regular bowler- we're talking of Kedar Jadhav or Yuvraj level of regularity. Ashwin is coming out of an injury with no active cricket before this. Jadeja is struggling with the ball, and been patchy with the bat, as Yuvraj has been far better. In fact Yuvraj as a bowling all-rounder makes more sense than Jadeja right now. Shami should not get a game- he's been very poor across the event, and now bowling slower than even Bhuvi, who's actually decently fast now.

    Dhawan is in some sort of form. Unfortunately he's got a non-opener, barely-fit and out-of-form Rohit Sharma as partner instead of someone comparable to David Warner.

    He can strike the ball hard at seven, in the final overs. He can also bowl a lot, maybe split overs 7-3 with Kedar. A straight swap for an out-of-form Jadeja.

    Gambhir's exclusion was strange, as also Uthappa's. Pant is only a season or two old. Let him play four Ranji seasons first.

    Dhawan's the next best performer in IPL after Warner, and also in good form since the start of last year, although he played just seven matches across that period. They picked a bloke playing active cricket right now.

    Team looks a little shaky atm. Kohli's been in piss poor form since the Australia series, Rohit's just coming back from injury, and you never know what you're going to get with Yuvraj and Dhoni. Don't mind the Dhawan inclusion much, if anything Rahane is luckier. Gotta be his last chance in ODIs now.

    Yeah I'm a bit apprehensive. Kohli just looks terribly out of sorts. Could go really embarrassingly (like a group stage exit, losing all our matches), on the other hand, India have recently formed a nice habit of raising their game for ICC tournaments, so let's hope that continues.
