New Delhi :
Senior opener Shikhar Dhawan and speedster Ishant Sharma have been picked in Delhi T20 squad for the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
The team will be led by Gautam Gambhir and it features rookie wicketkeeper-batsman Arjun Gupta, in the squad of 15. Rishabh will be on national duty for the T20 series.
But Arjun is likely to be the second wicketkeeper as Unmukt Chand is being looked as the first choice keeper, which gives the team an opportunity to pick an extra batsman or bowler.
However, Dhawan, who has not been picked for T20 Internationals and Ishant not in the scheme of things as far as limited overs matches is concerned, would like to make an impression before IPL auctions.
Ishant has been dumped by Rising Pune Supergiants and is without an IPL contract.
Squad: Gautam Gambhir (captain), Unmukt Chand, Shikhar Dhawan, Nitish Rana, Milind Kumar, Kshitij Sharma, Sarthak Ranjan, Arjun Gupta (wk), Pawan Negi, Manan Sharma, Ishant Sharma, Navdeep Saini, Vikas Tokas, Pradeep Sangwan, Subodh Bhati.
