India name preliminary World Cup squad

Cheteshwar Pujara, Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane are included in the 30-man preliminary squad for the 2011 World Cup, while there was no place for veteran Rahul Dravid and Irfan Pathan.

Yusuf Pathan made it to the list of probables following his good performances against New Zealand in the recently concluded ODI series. Also named in the squad was Parthiv Patel, who hit two half-centuries in the last two matches of the five-match ODI series against New Zealand.

The batting had the likely names of Tendulkar, Sehwag, Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina. The ones who are likely to be challenging for a place in the final fifteen are Rohit Sharma, Ajinkya Rahana, Saurabh Tiwary, Shikhar Dhawan, Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara.

The fast department had well-known seniors such as Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Sreesanth, Ishant Sharma, Munaf Patel and Praveen Kumar, while Vinay Kumar also found a spot. The spinners were led by Harbhajan Singh and included Pragyan Ojha, Amit Mishra and R Ashwin, while Yusuf Pathan and Ravindra Jadeja made it as the bits-and-pieces men.

The side had four wicket-keepers with Dinesh Karthik, Parthiv Patel and Wridhiman Saha joining captain MS Dhoni.

The final team is to be declared a month before the start of the World Cup as per the rules of the ICC and would be pruned to a squad of 15.

30-man list: MS Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Sreesanth, Munaf Patel, Ishant Sharma, Vinay Kumar, Murali Vijay, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja, Ajinkya Rahane, Saurabh Tiwary, Yusuf Pathan, Parthiv Patel , R Ashwin, Wriddhiman Saha, Dinesh Karthik, Shikhar Dhawan, Amit Mishra, Piyush Chawla, Cheteshwar Pujara, Pragyan Ojha, Praveen Kumar.

ICC: DRS to be used in all WC games

The International Cricket Council has said that it will use the Decision Review System (DRS) based on technology popularly known as ‘hawkeye’ for all the matches of the ICC cricket World Cup 2011.

The world's cricket governing body, however, said the hot-spot technology can be used as part of the DRS only in the two semi-finals and the final of the mega event to be held in the Indian sub-continent from Feb-April 2011.

Indian skipper MS Dhoni is known to be in favor of the hot-spot technology, which uses infrared sensors to show whether the ball has hit bat, pad or glove.

"All the matches of the ICC World Cup 2011 will have the DRS which will be based on virtual technology. It is just that the hot-spot technology will not be available for all the matches," an ICC representative told PTI.

"ICC is still talking to BBG Sports for four cameras to be used in two semi-finals and final to implement the hot-spot technology," she said, adding two cameras each could be used for each of the semi-finals.

The representative also said the ICC is yet to finalize the supplier for the virtual technology as it has asked for quotations from Virtual Eye and Hawkeye, the two firms that provide such services.

The ICC's clarification comes a day after one of its spokespersons said in Mumbai that the DRS will be used in the four quarter-finals, two semi-finals and the final - a total of seven matches.
