Sachin rested, Yuvraj dropped & Saurabh Tiwary surprise picks

Star batsman Sachin Tendulkar will not be picking India's Asia Cup squad, after it was reported that he requested the BCCI not to consider him for the tournament.

The other main announcement was the axing of Yuvraj Singh from the ODI squad. Yuvraj has displayed unresponsive form and deprived fitness levels in the recent past.

The team will be led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who returns to take charge of the team.

Meanwhile, what will bring shout approval to the Indian fans is the return of Virender Sehwag, who has improved from his shoulder injury and forms part of the team.

Also returning were Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Praveen Kumar, Zaheer Khan and Ashish Nehra.

Amongst the surprise picks were Saurabh Tiwary & Ashok Dinda. While this the first time Saurabh Tiwary has been picked, Ashok Dinda retained his place after being a part of the outfit that performed poorly in Zimbabwe. Dinesh Karthik and Yusuf Pathan are amongst the high profile names dropped from the side that went to Zimbabwe. Also axed was Murali Vijay who had a torrid outing, and Amit Mishra.

Ashwin however retained his place after his good showing in the last match he played, along with Pragyan Ojha who had looked like the best spinner on view. They will partner Harbhajan in the spin department.

Squad: MS Dhoni (captain & wk), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Praveen Kumar, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Pragyan Ojha, R Ashwin, Saurabh Tiwary, Ashok Dinda.
