Top Cricketers Not in the World Cup 2015 Squad :
Yuvraj Singh (India): Yuvi was India’s best player in the 2007 World Twenty20 and the 2011 World Cup, and he was the man of the tournament of the World Cup 2011. But after that his form had declined since then, and he failed to make a mark when it was time to pick the World Cup team squad. But it must have been tough leaving out a once high-impact top player, but it was a pragmatic call by Indian team selectors.
Gautam Gambhir (India): He was the top run scored for India in the finals of the World Twenty20 and World Cup, and his contribution to his team’s rise in all types of formats in the Gary Kirsten era was immense.
Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo (West Indies): A set of two top players boycotted the tour of India. They are Pollard and Bravo were among them. They both has now been left out of the World Cup squad 2015. Chief selector Clive Lloyd said, insists of they were dropped for their poor performance only.
Alastair Cook (England): He was the The former England ODI captain and now he is in out. His extraordinarily poor form with the bat—no hundreds in the last 45 innings, one fifty in the last five series and coupled with England’s horror run in ODIs.No series wins over a major team since June 2012,So the selectors doesn't choose him.
Nathan Lyon (Australia): He was the off-spinner troubled India a great deal in the recent Test series and he picked up 23 wickets. But his form with one-day cricket has been brief, and he wasn’t experienced enough to merit a place to go ahead of the more experienced Xavier Doherty.
Shoaib Malik (Pakistan): This Was it as a 2011 headline repeated by mistake in think? But the fact is No. The former Pakistan captain was left out again for the 2015 World Cup, right now when he is in the prime of his life. He is one of Pakistan’s key cricketers of the last decade, Malik will have to wait longer for another track at the World Cup 2015.
Murali Vijay (India): he performed well to his recent tours to South Africa, England and Australia, India’s Test opener displayed discipline in stroke-play and staying power in the crease rarely seen from an Indian batsman since the heady years of Rahul Dravid. Being he is in-form batsman with 482 runs in the Tests against Australia team, Vijay could have made the team in place of the struggling Shikhar Dhawan.
