New Delhi. This time the Indian cricket team will play at home in the ICC ODI World Cup. India is waiting to win the ICC trophy for 10 years and under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, Team India can do this wonders. There are constant speculations about the kind of team that will enter the tournament. Many veterans have chosen their own team. Former selector Saba Karim also selected the 15-member World Cup squad.

The whole world is eyeing the ICC ODI World Cup to be held in India this year. The Indian team has still missed achieving this even after doing well in the last several ICC tournaments. Even after making it to the World Test Championship final twice in a row, India had to return empty-handed. First New Zealand and then Australia won it. The Indian team would like to land at home with a strong team. Former selector Saba Karim selected his 15-member team during a show in the second match of the Test series played between India and West Indies.

No chance for big players

Some big names are missing from the team selected by Saba Karim. Wicketkeeper Sanju Samson is being discussed continuously and Saba did not give him a place in his team for the World Cup. Apart from this, he has not included all-rounder Shardul Thakur and spinner Yuzvendra Chahal in his team.
