Indian Team

An Indian team is a group of extremely talented and extremely lucky individuals. Out of 1.3 billion people, it is these 15 that have the opportunity to play for the nation. Due to the traffic and the luck factor coming into play, we often see deserving players lose out on opportunities. The Indian team is carefully hand-picked as the selectors are always under immense scrutiny. Here is a look at what Prithvi Shaw, Nitish Rana, and others had to say after getting a national team snub:

Nitish Rana who has been working extremely hard in the domestic circuit is expecting a national team call-up. He happens to be the captain of the Delhi Cricket Association squads. His game in the middle order is elite. He had a splendid SMAT 2022. He scored 1 100 and 2 50s in the 5 games that Delhi played in the group stage. His performances are more considerable as his scores have come on pitches where other batters haven’t managed to score a 30! His hundred against Punjab was the highlight. 

Prithvi Shaw and Sarfaraz Khan Express Grief:

Prithvi Shaw and Sarfaraz Khan also expressed dejection. Sarfaraz has been scoring runs for the past two Ranji Seasons. He has been scoring ton after ton and is setting a mountain of runs. He is banging down the door of the national team. He wasn’t expected to be called for the white-ball team but he deserves a call-up for the red-ball squad. Prithvi Shaw on the other hand was expected to be called for the white-ball team. In the absence of Rohit and KL in New Zealand, Prithvi should have been given a chance as he has previously played there.  

But it is not their performances at the domestic level but the good performances at the national level which have kept these talented players out of the team. For bringing Sarfaraz Khan in, we will need to sack, Shreyas Iyer or Hanuma Vihari But they are doing very well in the limited opportunities given.

Ravi Bishnoi and Umesh Yadav expressed their sorrow on Instagram too. Umesh Yadav was a surprise pick in the Indian Team for the South Africa Tour of India 2022. Umesh did decently well too. He did go for runs but got the job done by taking wickets. Ravi Bishnoi who was traveling with the Indian team was evidently dejected too. He has never had a very poor performance. In the limited opportunities that he has got, he has been very impressive.
