The five-member selection panel, headed by Krishnamachari Srikkanth ignored Rohit Sharma and went for the tried and tested in India’s final 15-member squad for the ICC World Cup, to be held in the sub-continent from February 19. Most of the big names, including Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir , who are down with injuries, were named in the squad. Mahendra Singh Dhoni will lead the team while Sehwag will play in the role of deputy. The selectors, who met for around 90 minutes in Chennai to finalise the team here, picked three specialist spinners, considering that the high profile-event will be held in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, and four seamers. Leg-spinner Piyush Chawla made the cut along with R Ashwin, with Harbhajan Singh leading the spin attack. It was heartbreak for S Sreesanth who was overlooked in favour of Delhi pacer Ashish Nehra while the big-hittng Yusuf Pathan also made the cut. The team: MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli Suresh Raina Yuvraj Singh Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, R Ashwin, Zaheer Khan , Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel , Praveen Kumar Piyush Chawla.
