Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has hit out at spinners Rahul Chahar and Varun Chakraborty for not being selected for the upcoming T20 series against New Zealand. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Tuesday announced a 16-member squad led by Rohit Sharma for the three-match T20 series starting November 17. Virat Kohli, Jaspreet Bumra, Ravindra Jadeja and Shami were rested. Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Shardul Thakur and Varun Chakraborty were sidelined.
Rahul Chahar played in the match against Namibia in the T20 World Cup. He added four overs and gave up 30 runs. With this, the Kiwis have added veteran Yuzvendra Chahal to the squad for the series. However, the BCCI has selected Rahul Chahar for the India ‘A’ squad for the tour of South Africa, which starts on November 23. “They (Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar) proved their mettle. Their experience will definitely strengthen the Indian team, ”Gavaskar said.
“But I wonder what he did to keep Rahul Chahar out of the 16-man squad. He could be on the T20 World Cup squad. He got a chance. Wondering what he did wrong. I hope someone from the selection committee will tell him why he is not in the team. ” “I have to tell Varun Chakraborty why he did not join the team.” Said.
Indian team for New Zealand T20 series:
Rohit Sharma (captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Ishant Kishan (wicket-keeper), Venkatesh Iyer, Yuzvendra Chahal, R Ashwin, Akshar Patel, Avesh Khan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Hershel Patel, Mohammad Siraj.
