With the Indian team being announced for the test match series in England, selectors have dropped two senior cricketers – Virender Sehwag and Harbhahan Singh. So, have the selectors been unfair to Sehwag & Harbhajan?
BoomNews’s show #Cricket-O-Mania saw senior journalist Ayaz Memon and journalist Abhishek Dubey discuss the isuse.
Here are some key points:
Eight months till the World Cup, experience will matter there: Memon
Harbhajan has done reasonably well in domestic cricket: Memon
Sehwag, if he gets going, can win you matches: Memon
Selectors don’t have total faith in both Sehwag and Harbhajan now: Dubey
After 2002, this is the first 5-test match series abroad: Dubey
Both should have been there in one squad (either the Bangladesh or England tour): Memon
As far as selectors/team management is concerned, Sehwag’s career for overseas tours is over: Dubey
Onus is on Sehwag and Harbhajan to prove themselves: Memon
18-member team going abroad, and neither of them finding a place is quirky: Memon
Selectors have taken a call, they need to look at the future: Dubey
