National selectors announced the 15-member Indian cricket squad for the ICC Champions.
Squad: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit, Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Umesh Yadav, Mohammad Shami
Selectors have selected Rohit and Shikhar for the opening slot. I am surprised to see that. Shikhar Dhawan has scored just 110 in 6 innings in Vijya hajare trophy. His highest score was near 35, His strike rate was below 70. On the other hand Gambhir is doing decent job. Now if we talk about IPL then GG has scored 425 in 12 matches with the strike rate of 132 and average is 47, Shikhar has scored 388 in 11 matched with the average of 35 and strike rate is 126. Still he is selected in the team. Now the question is that if selectors are looking for young team then why Rishabh did not get chance. He has amazing domestic season and IPL is also good for him.
Even Rohit is injured and has not played any international cricket and In IPL he has not performed even. he has scored just 183 in 11 matched and the average is just 22. GG is not getting any chance on the other hand these two guyz are getting chances again and again. What do you think so ? GG or Rishabh should get chance ?
