Twitter hits out at BCCI for ignoring Mayank Agarwal


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday announced the final Indian squads (T20Is, ODIs and Tests) for West Indies tour which starts from August 3 in Florida. As usual, the fans were not happy with the team selection as Mayank Agarwal was not included in the squad for the upcoming assignments.

Even now, fans couldn’t decode how the selection committee is taking such strange decisions in the meeting. It is cognisance of the fact that Mayank Agarwal was called in as a backup opener for KL Rahul during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 when the latter sustained a niggle in back while trying to take a catch against England fixture.

Despite Agarwal’s inclusion, he was not given even a single chance to showcase his gameplay. Past is past. Now looking into the future, when Indian cricket fans expected BCCI to pick Mayank Agarwal for Caribbean tour, he was ignored after world cup call-up.

Mayank is a crunch run-getter in the domestic cricket. He was the leading run-scorer in the 2017–18 Ranji Trophy season, concluding the tournament on a good note with 1,160 runs. He scored 2141 runs in 2018 across all formats and in fact, it was the highest total by any batsman in an Indian domestic cricket season.

India’s tour of West Indies will start with a three-match T20I series on August 3 and then both teams will play three ODIs and two Test matches between August 8-30. It should be noted that the two Test matches will be part of the inaugural edition of the ICC World Test Championship.

India’s squad for three T20Is: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma (VC), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant (WK), Krunal Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Rahul Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini
