08rainamug

The 36-year-old Harbhajan last played worldwide cricket just over a year ago in the 2016 Asia T20 Cup while his last ODI was in October 2015.

Under the previous financial model, the big three countries of India, England and Australia received the greatest share of revenue. "This will give me more time to gauge my fitness, practice and confidence levels", Shami said ahead of DD's match agianst Gujarat Lions here. I am hopeful that I can perform well in the upcoming Champions Trophy.

The possibility of an Indian withdrawal from the one-day tournament, held in England and Wales throughout June, had been raised after the Board of Control for Cricket in India were left unhappy with the financial agreement at a recent ICC board meeting in Dubai.

Acknowledging the valuable tips he gets from Delhi captain and former India cricketer Zaheer Khan, Shami said that it is always helpful to talk to former players. "If you speak to Zaheer, there is something or the other that emerges", he said. The 15-man squad saw the return of Rohit Sharma and Mohammad Shami who've recovered after injuries.

Although he didn't get a game in the competition, he can say that he was part of the setup that won the title in England and later featured in the home ODI series against Australia as well, which too India won. "We have to focus, help and guide each other", he said. We would be certainly giving our hundred per cent and the rest is luck. He makes a comeback after a good show in the IPL.

Kuldeep, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur were all put on a standby list. Standbyes: Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik, Kuldeep Yadav, Rishab Pant, and Shardul Thakur. "We will groom him for the future". The Tamil Nadu wicket-keeper batsman was in roaring form in the domestic 50-over games. Young Manish Pandey in the team will add on to the batting strength. The Indians fans would be hoping that team could replace last time's performance.

"May be, one place here and there".

"I think this is the best possible side at the moment and every player selects himself".

"Ashwin's selection was not a hard decision". The (IPL) franchise was magnanimous enough to listen to our request to rest him.

"After that I never played for India in ODIs".

Prasad also insisted neither skipper Kohli nor all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja needed rest from the IPL.

The playoffs start in England with India taking on Pakistan on June 4. But the fact that he was India's best bowler in that tournament made him an automatic pick for another mult-team event.

"We respect IPL but in the longer format, we have to also consider the English conditions that we are playing in. (But) considering how fit he is, it wasn't a problem", he said.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni remained India's first choice wicketkeeper.
