Tag Archives: India vs Pakistan Champions Trophy 2013
The Indian team for the Champions Trophy has been announced. The selectors have not picked up the three stalwarts – Viru, Yuvi and Gauti. No Rahane either. The only change from the team that is the inclusion of Amit Mishra for Gautam Gambhir. All in all, a young team that I like. The only problem is that many of the players would take time to adjust to English conditions after playing in the dust bowls of India. On the other hand, the Indian team that won the 1983 World Cup in England had only a few senior people (who did not have a major role to play in our eventual victory).
