BharatArmy Founder Rakesh Patel selects his 15 man squad for the #CT17

On the eve of the final ODI series how are India shaping up on their quest to defend the trophy they sensationally won in England almost 4 years ago? One pleasing aspect of this current squad is the spine of the starting XI is likely to remain consistent to that of the 2013 tournament.
