Indian Cricketer Gautam Gambhir has been included in the Delhi squad by the Indian Team Management for the upcoming Ranji Trophy matches 2016-17.
Bowler Ishant Sharma has also been roped in the Delhi team as the 16th member.
“The selectors have spoken to Gautam and he has expressed his interest in playing the next round encounter as he will be getting valuable match time. That’s the reason we have named Gautam in the squad. In case, we don’t get him, we have kept Himmat Singh as cover,” a member of the selection panel said.
The team members are still deciding whether to take Sharma or not in the squad. In the four day matches, Delhi team will face Rajasthan in Kerala from November 21.
The reports revealed that the game will also include Indian Cricketer Shikhar Dhawan in the team. He will give his comeback after few days.
Gambhir had not played in any of the matches after an absence of two years. In the test matches against England, Gambhir didn’t get the permission to play match.
