Ganguly slams selectors for ignoring Gill

Ganguly slams selectors for ignoring Gill
Ganguly questions Indian Selectors for their inconsistent policies.

Dada took to his official Twitter account to voice his opinion about the omission of deserved players. His caption read, “There are many in the squad who can play all formats ..surprised not to see Shubman gill ..Rahane in the one-day squad.”

Ganguly urged the selection panel to be consistent with their policies. It was indeed surprising to see an out-of-form Kedar Jadhav was picked in lieu of in-form Shubman Gill who is still waiting for his turn to rub shoulders with seniors and experienced players.

It should be noted that Shubman Gill was adjudged man of the series in the unofficial five-match ODI series against West Indies where he scored 218 runs to his name but unfortunately, he was not picked.

“Time has come for indian selectors to pick same players in all formats of the game for rhythm and confidence.. too few are playing in all formats ..great teams had consistent players ..it’s not about making all happy but picking the best for the country and be consistent..@bcci,” Ganguly tweeted.

Shubman Gill who is one of the brightest prospects of India expressed his disappointed to have not been picked in India squad for West Indies assignment.

“I was waiting for the Indian senior team to be announced on Sunday and I expected to be selected for at least one of the squads.

It was disappointing not to get picked but I am not going to spend time thinking over it. I’ll keep scoring runs and performing to the best of my ability to impress the selectors,” Gill told CricketNext from Antigua.
