Next month, the Indian team will go on a tour of the West Indies. In this tour, the team will play a series of two Tests, three ODIs and five T20I matches. The BCCI announced the Indian squad for the Test and ODI series against the West Indies on Friday (June 24). Fans and pundits are expressing their opinion as some major changes have been seen in the team. Former India opener Wasim Jaffer has also raised some questions on the selection process.
Wasim Jaffer is always expressing himself on social media. As soon as the BCCI announced the ODI and Test squads on Friday, the same discussions started everywhere. Some are lauding the selection process for bringing Ajinkya Rahane back as Test captain, while others have included Rituraj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal in the Test squad. While some are criticizing Cheteshwar Pujara for being dropped from the team. Wasim Jaffer raised three questions, which the selection committee and team management might struggle to answer. Jaffer has raised these three questions from his official Twitter account.
In the first question Jaffer asks, what is the need for four opening batsmen in the team for the West Indies tour? Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Rituraj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal have been included in the squad for this tour. According to Jaffer, Sarfraz Khan, who can perform well in the middle order, could have been included in the team in place of the four openers. Sarfaraz has been rocking Ranji cricket for the past few seasons.
Puja’s second question was that Abhimanyu Easwaran and Priyank Panchal have performed wonderfully in Ranji and for the country. These players have been knocking at the door of Test cricket for a long time now. Are they not being selected in the team just because they are not playing in the IPL? Rituraj came in line before Gaikwad Kasa. Jaffer is shocked that Shami has been rested even after a month’s rest. According to Jaffer, Shami is a bowler who can perform better the more he plays.
