Team India has been announced for the three ODI series against England. The team of 18 players includes four openers in the form of Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan and Shubman Gill. At the same time, openers Prithvi Shaw and Devdutt Padikkal, who have performed strongly in domestic cricket, have not been given a chance. This decision of the selectors raises the question whether there is no value for the good performance in domestic cricket? At the same time, the question also arises that why players who have failed in several consecutive innings in international cricket have been kept in the squad?
Earth is out after failing 2 innings, so how can Gill team fail in 5 consecutive innings
Prithvi Shaw was included in the Indian Test team that visited Australia. But, he was dismissed by scoring 0 and 4 in the Adelaide Test. Shaw was then dropped from the squad and Shubman Gill was given a chance. Gill did well there but could score just 1 half-century in the home Test series against England. Despite this, he has been retained in the squad for the ODI series against England.
Shaw also improved his technique by returning from Australia
On the tour of Australia, it was said that Prithvi Shaw has a technical problem. His backlift is not perfect. After this, the Mumbai batsman spoke with Sachin Tendulkar and worked a lot on his technique. He benefited from this in the domestic one-day tournament Vijay Hazari Trophy. He scored 827 runs in 8 matches at an average of 165. Despite this, he was not included in the ODI team.
No one has been suspicious of Shaw’s talent before and he was taken out so that he could work harder on his batting. But, when he has improved both technique and performance, then what is keeping him out of the team is beyond comprehension. Similarly, the domestic performance of Devadatta Padikkal was not given due consideration.
Dhawan out of T20 playing-11, Ishaan out
Shikhar Dhawan is unable to make it to the playing-11 in the ongoing T20 series against England. Ishaan Kishan got a chance in the opening in a match and made a strong half century. In the next match, Ishaan was sent to number 3 and in his next match he dropped. It was said that they do not fit perfectly. Ishaan is no longer included in the ODI team.
