The BCCI on Monday announced Team India’s team for the South Africa tour. While most persons in the ODI team have been retained, pacer Zaheer Khan has found a place back in the team. All eyes were on Gautam Gambhir’s selection after his performances in the domestic series, but he was overlooked.
“His name was discussed, in fact, we discussed a lot of things. Even skipper MS Dhoni was consulted and all the players were selected unanimously,” BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel stated after a gathering of the selection panel. Ambati Rayudu will make his first entrance into the Test squad as a reserve batsman.
Yuvraj Singh has maintained his place despite dishing average performance in the ODI series against Australia and the current West Indies series as well.
