New Delhi: Former Indian cricket team opener and cricket expert Aakash Chopra has questioned the selection of the team for the ongoing ODI series against New Zealand and the ODI series against Bangladesh. Ashok Chopra says what kind of team is this, which is playing two consecutive ODI series, but most of the players are not part of this series, but they will play the next series and those who are playing in this series, will be out of the next series.
Chopra said, 'For the ongoing ODI series against New Zealand, there are 9 players in Team India who will go straight home (India) after the final match, while only a few players will go to Bangladesh. Even 10 new players will join Team India in the ODI series in Bangladesh. The surprising thing is that there are many players who are not playing in this ODI series, but they will play in the ODI series against Bangladesh.'
Chopra further mentioned the players who will return to India after the ODI series against New Zealand. This includes the names of Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh and Umran. Akash said that you drop Sanju Samson after playing one match and play Deepak Hooda, but he is also not a part of the ODI series against Bangladesh. Does it make any sense?
He also said that you pick Chahal and Kuldeep together, but play only one. Shubman Gill will be out of the next series, while Ishan Kishan is not a part of this series, he played the T20 series but will now play the ODI series in Bangladesh. Mohammad Siraj will play the ODI series in Bangladesh but was not selected for the New Zealand ODI series. What a team selection.
