Indian Team for Twenty20 tie against Australia

Can anyone point me to any announcement on the composition of Team India for the Twenty20 tie against Australia at the CCI Stadium in Mumbai (on Saturday 20 October 2007)?

I can’t remember seeing any team announced anywhere and I have been watching the channels and waiting for an announcement of sorts from the selectors over the last few days. Nothing seems to have emanated. So I am assuming I must have missed it completely!

Is the expectation that the current ODI Team will continue on in Mumbai.

Or is the expectation that Twenty20-World-Cup-winning Team India would be retained?

If it is the former, that would be an error of judgement, in my view. If it is the latter, then who replaces the injured Gautam Gambhir and Piyush Chawla in the squad?

Genuinely confused…

Either way, I’d suggest the following Team India for tomorrows’ tie against the Aussies:
Yusuf Pathan
Virender Sehwag
Irfan Pathan
Yuvraj Singh
Rohit Sharma
Robin Uthappa
M. S. Dhoni
Joginder Sharma
Harbhajan Singh
R. P. Singh

  1. I think the T20 side shall be selected from the one-day squad that played the one-day matches. The big 3 will in the side, not sure if they will play or not.

  2. Mohan,

    I have been wondering about the same question. There has not been a mention of the team anywhere by anyone. It seems like it is being treated as an exhibition game.

  3. Sourav and Dravid again kept themselves away from T20, not sure about Tendulkar.

    Rest team may be same as the world cup one.

  4. Not true gnbmdr. The Big3 are not playing, for example. Read this:

    However, no team announcement. Strange…

  5. OK.

    The young stars of T-2o have shown that their previous T20 victory over Australia is not a fluke.

    So, I guess, the Big 3 (or Big 2, since Dravid has been dropped already) could also be dropped for 50-over version.
