Rishabh Pant, who has been criticized for playing the worst in limited overs cricket, has unexpectedly missed the Bangladesh ODI series. Rohit Sharma revealed that Pant will not play in this series due to an injury during the toss. But is it a real injury? Or lied and sidelined Pant? Fans are expressing doubts. Moreover, some decisions taken by Team India in this match are raising some more questions.
Everyone thought that Sanju Samson, who was given a chance in just one match during the New Zealand tour, would get a chance in this tournament. But he was not selected for the Bangladesh tour. This decision shocked many people. Finally, if Pant is away from this series, not giving a chance to Sanju even as a replacement is angering the fans. Sanju, who impressed by consistently performing in ODIs and T20s this year, is angry that he did not get as many opportunities as expected in Team India.
Keeping for Rahul..!
Everyone knows that Team India’s star batsman KL Rahul also does wicket keeping. But many days have passed since he assumed these duties. After Pant came Rahul did not need to keep. Even in IPL he is not keeping. Such was the surprise of everyone that Rahul was exceptionally given this responsibility in the first match against Bangladesh.
If Pant misses this series, everyone thought that Ishan Kishan, who is in the squad, will replace him in the team. But he was sidelined by the team management. Rahul was given the responsibility of keeping. This decision also shocked everyone. Noted commentator Harsha Bhogle also responded to this. Rishabh Pant is not there. At the same time, Sanju Samson was in India. Ishaan Kishan was there too. While keepers are waiting for opportunities, now KL Rahul is keeping. I find it all very confusing,’ he tweeted.
