    World Cup squads: Australia, Bangladesh, New Zealand and Sri Lanka

    Australia, who've lost three out of their last four one-dayers, have included Brad Haddin, Brad Hodge and Shaun Tait in the squad and left out Cameron White and Stuart Clark. Gilchrist is expected to join the squad only around the end of the first stage.

    Across the Tasman sea, Daryl Tuffey has popped in out of nowhere to be picked in New Zealand's World Cup squad after Kyle Mills' injury last month. In an unprecedented move, Shane Bond has been declared fit to play two consecutive series.

    Yesterday, Sri Lanka announced a predictable, well-settled squad for the tournament. Nuwan Zoysa and Upul Chandana have been left out, despite not getting any opportunity to present their cases during the on-going one-day series in India.

    Bangladesh, who've won 11 out of their last 12 ODIs (v/s Zimbabwe and Scotland) and lost 13 out of their last 15 ODIs against teams who can play ODI cricket (the two wins coming against Sri Lanka and Australia), have picked Mushfiqur Rahim as the keeper, leaving out Khaled Mashud. Khaled Mahmud's non-inclusion could mean he's definitely retired now.
