Test specialist Ishant Sharma will be back as Delhi captain for the Vijay Hazare Trophy even as the selection committee led by Atul Wassan once again picked controversial Kshitiz Sharma in the 15-member squad.

Kshitiz surprisingly landed an IPL contract of Rs 20 lakh with Chennai Super Kings after being bracketed in the all-rounder category.

He was given a chance in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy, where he scored 7 off 10 balls.

However the selectors have got U-23 highest scorer Hiten Dalal in the limited overs side along with former U-19 captain Unmukt Chand, who scored a half-century in the Mushtaq Ali T20 final.
