Defending World cup champions India announced their 15 man squad on Tuesday 5th January with the Asian side look to bounce back from a difficult test series with Australia by successfully defending their world cup crown in February. Ravindra Jadeja who is carrying a knock and Ishant Sharma who also have a niggle, are both included – but Yuvraj Singh who was the star of the last World Cup and been in good form this year domestically, is overlooked.
