Wow !! Bold move by BCCI for leaving out the seniors…only surprise is Yuvi being left out, didn’t see that coming. #WC2015

All said and done but the exclusion of Yuvraj & Gambir from the 30 probable list of #WC2015 is hurting me badly.

Youth, form and all is okay. But we should at least give Sehwag, Yuvi & Zak one big farewell party, no?
