Mumbai: India's out-of-favour senior cricketers like Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir were today omitted from the 30-member probables list for next year's World Cup with the selectors reposing faith on the young guns to retain the title in Australia and New Zealand.


 


Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and pacer Zaheer Khan, who were a part of the 2011 World Cup winning team along with Sehwag, Yuvraj and Gambhir, were also left out of the list, putting a question mark on their future given that none of the five have featured in an ODI for the last one year.


 


Apart from the famed five, pacers Ashish Nehra and Munaf Patel, spinner Piyush Chawla and all-rounder Yusuf Pathan were also among the players axed from the list announced by BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel after a meeting of the selection committee.
