The Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) Team Selection Committee made it clear that the ICC Champions Trophy squad selection was not on the basis of Indian Premier League (IPL) performances. They have also made it clear that it cannot be the parameter of selection. 

Therefore, India have picked a really strong squad for the Champions Trophy. Unfortunately, Gautam Gambhir was not picked despite putting up a fabulous show in the ongoing IPL. Critics have slammed the selectors and the fans also expressed their disappointment on Twitter. 

However, one needs to know, Gambhir himself had stated a couple of days ago that performing in the IPL and trying to sneak into the India ODI squad is not really fair. But in this case, Rohit Sharma should consider himself to be lucky enough to get picked, as KL Rahul is injured.
