The Indian selectors announced the list of 30 probables for the 2015 World Cup which will be held in Australia and New Zealand. The five-member selection panel headed by Sandeep Patil went for on youth over experience.
The most notable omission was that of the five veterans - Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Zaheer Khan, Gautam Gambhir and Harbhajan Singh - who were instrumental in India lifting the World Cup in 2011.
Fans and critics expressed mixed reactions over Twitter - while some felt that Yuvraj should have featured in the list, others cracked jokes on the omission. Here are the best tweets:

People are more disappointed at Sehwag, Yuvraj and Gambhir not making it to the World Cup squad than Sehwag, Yuvraj and Gambhir themselves.— Rameez (@Sychlops) December 4, 2014
