While an in-form Gautam Gambhir failed to grab the attention of the selectors, the other senior members - Suresh Raina and Dinesh Karthik - were, however, kept as standby players alongside the young trio of Rishabh Pant, Shardul Thakur and Kuldeep Yadav. "We will groom him for the future", noted Prasad.

Squad: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Yuvraj Singh, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, M Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

There are no surprises in the squad selected for the ICC Champions Trophy. Manish Pandey also finds a place in the squad.

Meanwhile, the selectors avoided major surprises for the June 1-18 tournament, offering little joy to Rishabh Pant, who has been setting the IPL on fire.

The 31-year-old has been picked as a first-choice opener along with Rohit Sharma, with Ajinkya Rahane providing back-up. He would to make his opportunity and count and prove that he could replicate what MS Dhoni did in 2013. He said he hopes to go into the Champions Trophy with eight to 10 IPL games underhis belt. "Because of the quality of Kuldeep, we have considered him and not because of the form of Ashwin".

Mohammed Shami may well be saying "World Cup to World Cup". Shami has an ability to swing the ball both ways and he's done and troubled a lot of batsmen with his swing and pace in the past.

Shami, who has been regularly turning up for Delhi Daredevils in the ongoing Indian Premier League, felt it was a good platform for him to prepare for the Champions Trophy. The more he plays, it is better for him.

Shikhar Dhawan's selection too reflects consistency. Raina, who is on stand-by is the second-highest with 434 in as many games fir Gujarat Lions, behind only David Warner.

Ashwin is now recovering from a sports hernia, which ruled him out of the IPL, but he is expected to be fit for the Champions Trophy, which will be held in England. Talking of talent, Rohit always gets into the team, whether or not he plays well.

"In early part of the 90s and even in early 2000s, it is just that India played better than Pakistan in world tournaments because there was not much difference between the two sides as the Pakistan team was a fantastic unit then with the likes of Wasim (Akram), Waqar (Younis), Inzamam (ul-Haq), Saeed Anwar, Javed Miandad and Salim Malik". He is passionate about wildlife and landscape photography.
