Yuvraj, Bhajji in India's T20 World Cup team

India's national selectors have just announced the squad for the Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka and it includes not one but plenty of stunning picks.

The first one has to be Yuvraj Singh. He has not played any real competitive cricket since recovering from a rare germ-cell cancer but the selectors felt he had recovered well enough to be picked.

The other surprise was Harbhajan Singh. The off-spinner has struggled for form but once again, the 'professional' selectors have gone with their gut feeling. Lakshmipathy Balaji has also been included as is Piyush Chawla.

The squad for the New Zealand Test series was also announced.
