Some of the young guns - Rishabh Pant, Rahul Tripathi, Yuzvendra Chahal and Sanju Samson - have been performing well in the ongoing IPL season but the selectors didn't read too much into their IPL exploits.

"It is a balanced team, an experienced team and I think we have picked the best possible side", chief selector M.S.K. Prasad told reporters. R Ashwin, who is now recovering from a sports hernia, and Ravindra Jadeja can perhaps expect part-time assistance from Yuvraj Singh, who kept his spot after his ODI career was given a re-start in the series against England in January. "In fact his franchise has been magnanimous to accept our request of resting him", said Prasad.

Ajinkya Rahane: Rahane has been selected as the other opening option for the tournament. R Ashwin, and Ravindra Jadeja- and they will be supported by part-time slow bowler Yuvraj Singh, who kept his place after his showing in the ODI in the series against England in January.
