Champions Trophy 2009 – Indian Team Selected, Rahul Dravid surprise inclusion in ODI team

India on Monday included Rahul Dravid in the 30 member squad for the Champions Trophy in South Africa in September 2009. Rahul had been out of the ODI lineup for the past 2 years and the surprise inclusion by the board must have been due to the shortcoming of the young Indian team to tackle the short balls. India failed lately in the department. Also the move was inspired by Rahul Draivd’s good form in the recently concluded IPL 2009 which helped his team to reach the Finals.

The eight-nation Champions Trophy will be held from September 24 to October 5.

India squad for the ICC Knock out Champions Trophy:

M S Dhoni(C), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Suresh Raina, Yusuf Pathan, Abhishek Nayar, Ishant Sharma, Zaheer Khan, Rudra Pratap Singh, Praveen Kumar, Harbhajan Singh, Pragyan Ojha, Ravindra Jadeja, Dinesh Karthik, Munaf Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin, Murali Vijay, Amit Mishra, Ajinkya Rahane, Dhawal Kulkarni, Subramaniam Badrinath, Ashish Nehra, Virat Kohli, Bhuvneshwar Kumar Singh, Wriddhiman Saha, Pankaj Singh.
