India Vs Australia T-20 match starts on October 7 and all Indians are waiting to know the fate of India. The selectors made the decision to drop out Ajinkya Rahane, since he may not be the right person for the short format. Alongside, Umesh Yadav and Mohammed Shami who are considered as the test specialists would also stay away from the T-20 match between India and Australia. Dinesh Karthik, who’s a seasoned player pipped Rishabh Pant, who’s a new and young player because of his nice form as well as experience.
Time for a Nice Surprise
However, there is another surprise. The comeback of Nehra at 38 years is really a big blow. He receives a good respect and honor at the dressing room, which makes him a person with the amazing personality. Still, now he played total 25 T-20 internationals where he won 34 wickets that make him a great player of India. In regards to this selection matter, A BCCI official uttered the following lines “Ashish Nehra played the last full T20 series against England earlier this year. He was in contention to play Champions Trophy but an injury during IPL put paid to his hopes. India’s last two T20s were one-off games against West Indies and Sri Lanka, so Ashish wasn’t picked,”
How the selection is made?
The official says that the selection was made analyzing the fitness and not the form that makes him one of the senior players in the Indian team. History says that Ashis never stayed back because of poor form and this also the same fact plays leading role for the India Vs Australia T-20 match.
On the other hand, Ashwin and Jadeja were are once again ignored and the situation is very difficult for them to make a comeback. Ashwin played 4 matches taking 29 wickets and scored more than 200 runs where 82 feature his highest score.
It’s high time for the Indian team to show a great performance against Australia revealing the true courage of Indians.
