The selectors chose a 14-member India that is not too different from that which was suggested on this blog a few days back. The 15-member side that we had suggested included Irfan Pathan. Gautam Gambhir was left out.
Interestingly, Dilip Vengsarkar, the chairman of the selection team, handed the team out in a media release and did not address the media as he normally does.
The team is (perhaps in batting order):
VVS Laxman / Yuvraj Singh
Mahendra Singh Dhoni
Anil Kumble (capt)
Harbhajan Singh / Murali Kartik
Sreesanth / RP Singh
