T20 WC dream ends for Joginder, Sreesanth

New Delhi: Pacers Joginder Sharma, who starred in the 2007 World Twenty20 Championship, and S Sreesanth were left out of the 30 probables announced by the BCCI on Saturday for the second edition of the prestigious event to be held in England in June.

Piyush Chawla and Ajit Agarkar were the other prominent names which did not figure among the probables, otherwise comprising members of the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup winning Indian squad.

Sreesanth, who is nursing an ankle injury and was supposed to be fit before the T20 World Cup, is yet to recover although no reason was known for the omission of Sharma, Chawla and Agarkar.

BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan refused to comment on the omission of the players who played in the last edition of the tournament.

"The Board cannot comment on player selection. It is a matter concerning the selectors not us," he told PTI.

Batsman Robin Uthappa returns to national fold after around an eight-month lay off even as senior pros Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman continued to remain out of the Twenty20 scheme of things.

The list will be pruned to half before a final squad is named.
