Also, Rohit Sharma makes a comeback to the squad after being sidelined for more than 6 month due to injury that he suffered in the series against New Zeland. The off-spinner played a crucial role in helping India win the Champions Trophy in 2013.

Putting an end to the controversial situation, the BCCI has confirmed India's participation in the all-important ICC Champions Trophy scheduled to be held from the 1st of June 2017 in England and Wales.

India missed the initial deadline of April 25 to name their squad - a date met by all other participating nations - but will face no sanction for the delay.

The Indian board was the only Full Member to vote against the new financial model - in which the BCCI's share of ICC revenues was heavily reduced - and was one of two Full Members to vote against the new governance changes. I want to perform well in the Champions Trophy and I want to start from where I left. Dhawan is not a regular member of the Indian team in all formats and in fact has only played two worldwide matches - ODIs against England - in the past six months. "And experience becomes of paramount importance in such a big tournament like this", said Prasad.

"We are completely impressed with Rishabh Pant". "We discussed Kuldeep Yadav who would have been a solid player". We always treat him more like a batsman, not many appreciate the phenomenal work he has done behind the wickets. Mohammed Shami is returning from injury while Ravi Ashwin is on a break. The franchise was magnanimous enough to listen to our request to rest him.

New Zealand will play hosts England in Group A, as well as Australia and Bangladesh. "It's not like others who have undergone surgeries and are getting rehabilitated".

This allowed Shikhar to secure his position in the squad with Rahane coming as a back-up opener.

Meanwhile, veteran all-rounder Yuvraj Singh also made the cut and will provide a third spin option behind the go-to spin duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. MSK Prasad said that they will be grooming Rishabh Pant just like Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah have been groomed. "When it comes to crunch situation, his input".

Acknowledging the valuable tips he gets from Delhi captain and former India cricketer Zaheer Khan, Shami said that it is always helpful to talk to former players.

"In the last 10-12 years that MSD [Dhoni] played for his country, he never had a bad day with the gloves. Even if you are motivated, you still have to push your limits because sometimes these domestic players are better players of spin bowling than what the worldwide players are nowadays", he added.

"I have some good memories of the tournament and I had a great one the last time we played there", Dhawan said.

Defending champions India open their campaign against Pakistan on June 4 at Edgbaston.
