I am heartbroken!!!!

After Ashish Nehra was picked over him for India's World Cup squad, S Sreesanth poured his heart out on Twitter.

"I am heartbroken but no worries, time will come my way... Will keep giving my very best to the game no matter how small my chances are. I truly believe in God," Sreesanth tweeted.  

"Lack of faith makes people scared to meet challenges," he added.

"I will never ever give up. I love this game and will keep giving my very best," the Kerala pacer wrote.

Sreesanth also wished the Indian team: "I am sure we will win this one. Will surely miss it. Was really looking forward to win it... maybe next one."

The team was announced on Monday in Chennai.

Squad: MS Dhoni (capt & wk), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Yusuf Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Praveen Kumar, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel, Piyush Chawla, R Ashwin

Fans choose their all-time ODI dream team

The people have spoken. To coincide with the 40th anniversary of the first One-Day International, cricket fans from almost 100 countries around the world have cast their votes on the ICC website for what they consider to be the all-time ODI team.
In total, fans from 97 countries cast almost 600,000 votes on www.icc-cricket.com between 22 December and 2 January to make their views known as to who have been the best ODI players of the past 40 years in the key categories of opening batsmen, middle-order batsmen, wicketkeeper, spin bowlers and fast bowlers.
Three players from Australia and India, two from the West Indies and one each from South Africa, Sri Lanka and Pakistan have made the final dream 11 with another Aussie named as 12th man while the momentous "438" game between South Africa and Australia in Johannesburg in 2006 has been voted the best ODI yet.
The All-Time ODI Dream Team is:

Opening batsmen: 
Virender Sehwag (both Ind)
Middle order: 
Brian Lara,
 Viv Richards (both WI) and
 Ricky Ponting (Aus)
All-rounder: 
 Kapil Dev (Ind)
Wicketkeeper: 
Spinner: 
    Muttiah Muralidaran (SL)
Fast bowlers: 
  Wasim Akram (Pak),
    Glenn McGrath (Aus) and 
   Allan Donald (SA)
12th man: Michael Bevan (Aus, the player who received the most number of votes without being enough to make the would-be starting 11).



Supporters had the chance to select the dream team from a shortlist of 48 players in different categories and they could pick their favourite game from a choice of 10 memorable matches.

The match they chose was a run-fest in Johannesburg's famous Wanderers Stadium in March 2006. Batting first, Australia made a record 434-4 in 50 overs with captain Ricky Ponting setting the day alight with 164 off just 105 balls.
The mood of the capacity crowd did not improve when SA lost a wicket with just three runs on the board. But then an innings of magic from Herschelle Gibbs (175 off 111) backed up by cameos by Graeme Smith(90 off 55), Mark Boucher (50 not out) and Johan van der Wath (35) saw the Proteas to a scarcely possible winning score of 438 with nine wickets down and one ball remaining. It was a wonderful occasion and truly an ODI never to be forgotten.
The first ever ODI was played between Australia and England on 5 January 1971 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Cricket Australia will also mark the 40th anniversary of ODI cricket with a number of events, including a cocktail reception with members of Australia's first ODI team at Victoria's Government House, during Melbourne's Cricket Weekend - which also includes a Twenty20 International - from 14-16 January.
The Australian ODI team from 1971 will also be presented to the crowd during the innings break of the first ODI match of the series between Australia and England at the MCG on Sunday 16 January.
The 40th anniversary of the ODI is being marked in the build-up to cricket's flagship event, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, which begins in Dhaka, Bangladesh on 19 February. As with all nine previous editions of the tournament, fans around the globe will no doubt be treated to amazing feats of individual and team brilliance that will live long in the memory.
The following is the short-list from which voters chose their favourites:

Opening batsmen (2) - Saeed Anwar, Sourav Ganguly, Gordon Greenidge, Matthew Hayden, Sanath Jayasuriya, Virender SehwagSachin Tendulkar, Glenn Turner.
