10 most debatable selections/omissions in 2015 World Cup: As all the participating teams declared their 15 man squads for the 2015 edition of the ICC World Cup, experts and fans started to raise eyebrows at some of the players who were selected and some who were omitted from the final 15.
Here are 10 of such players whose omission or selection raised are still debated.
(Note: The list is not in any particular order.)
1. Yuvraj Singh (India)
Last edition’s Man of the tournament, Yuvraj Singh has had a horrid run after the World cup. First his battle with cancer and then his return to cricket was a journey of lots of ups and downs.
He was out of form after he regained his fitness but was recalled for the Australia ODI series in 2013, but failed with the bat completely in a series where 300 runs were made in each match.
His innings in the finals of the World T20, which India lost, also got major criticism from former players and fans alike and he did not play for India since then.
Yuvraj was not included in the 30 man squad for the World cup but got into serious contention with 3 consecutive centuries in Ranji trophy on the eve of selections. But the selectors went for Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel instead of Yuvraj. Though they have mentioned that Yuvraj is on the back up for Jadeja, it seems highly unlikely that the Punjab south paw will feature in the mega event.
