NEW DELHI: Pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel, who missed the Asia Cup with injuries, were predictably back as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup.
All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who recently had a knee surgery after a ‘freak’ injury failed to make the cut on expected lines.
The team for the T20 World Cup will be led by Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will be his deputy in the marquee tournament which will take place in Australia, starting October 16.
India will play their first match against Pakistan on October 23.
Bumrah, who was suffering from back injury and Harshal, who had a side strain, had done an intense rehabilitation programme at the National Cricket Academy and the BCCI medical team has deemed them fit for the marquee series.
Veteran wicketkeeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik has also been included in the squad and will be the second keeper alongside Rishabh Pant.
Axar Patel, who played India’s final match in the Asia Cup against Afghanistan has been roped in as a replacement for Jadeja.
