Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan have not been included in the probables list for the ICC Champions Trophy in England from June 6 to 23.  Sehwag, overlooked for the ODI series against England, has not found a place in the BCCI's list of 30 probables. The explosive batsman was also dropped for India's last two Tests against Australia. 

Harbhajan last played an ODI in June 2011 and appears to be past his prime. The off-spinner also did not play the last two Tests against Australia.  Another exclusion from the list is of veteran pacer Zaheer. 

Cheteswar Pujara and Pragyan Ojha, who did well in the Tests against Australia, have also failed to make the cut. 

Shikhar Dhawan has been rewarded for his 187 on debut against Australia in Mohali Test.

The probables list: Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan, Gautam Gambhir, Unmukt Chand, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Manoj Tiwary, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, R Ashwin, Amit Mishra, Ravindra Jadeja, Jalaj Saxena, Parvez Rasool, Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashok Dinda, Umesh Yadav, Mohd Shami, Irfan Pathan, Vinay Kumar, Praveen Kumar, Ishwar Pandey, Sidharth Kaul, W Saha.
