India have been placed in Group B, alongside Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka in the Champions Trophy.

Some of the young guns - Rishabh Pant, Rahul Tripathi, Yuzvendra Chahal and Sanju Samson - have been performing well in the ongoing IPL season but the selectors didn't read too much into their IPL exploits.

As per reported by Hindustan Times, chief selector MSK Prasad said: "We considered Rishabh Pant, Kuldeep Yadav, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik and Shardul Thakur. I am pumped up to play the Champions Trophy", he added. The enterprising batsman hasn't played for the national side in the 50-over format since the series against New Zealand in October a year ago despite being selected for the subsequent ODI series against England. But as of now I want to focus on the IPL and then switch to the preparations for the Champions Trophy.
