It is not the best squad as far as I believe, this squad has some significant shortcomings.

1. The first being the concerning form of MS Dhoni, I am not bringing in my personal opinion on this, but it is very obvious that MS Dhoni is out of form.

2. Shikhar Dhawan is a permanent liability. Not much else to comment on him.

3. Same goes for Hardik Pandya. He is a hit and miss commodity.

4. No Rishabh Pant. To those who don't know about him, he has scored 972 runs in the recent Ranji season and that too at an insane average of 81 and a more insane strike rate of 107. He has great potential and he is even showing it in this edition of IPL. He could be a great finisher for India.

5. KL Rahul injury, which makes the chances for Shikhar Dhawan to be in the playing XI more bright and I certainly feel that including Gautam Gambhir could have done much more good.

Your thoughts appreciated.
