BCCI under scanner due to absence of policy for not communicating with players while deciding to pick or drop them from squad
The Indian Cricket Team selectors and thereby the BCCI are under the scanner as there are questions raised on them whether they are communicating with the player dropped or picked in the squad or not.
As per reports, the selection committee are not informed about the reasons why they are picked and especially dropped from the squad of the approaching series. Indian Test opening- Murali Vijay, who was not picked in the Indian Test squad for the upcoming West Indies tour, is one such and the recent case.
There have been fingers raised on the selectors, after they picked up the squad for all the three formats for the West Indies tour beginning from August 3. While the exclusion of in-form players like Shubman Gill from the ODI squad were questioned by many including Sourav Ganguly, the absence of Dinesh Karthik and Mayank Agarwal too, who were picked in the 2019 World Cup squad has confused many.
BCCI has no policy of selectors communicating with players
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on the other hand, has no such policy which allows the selectors and Cricketers to interact or communicate personally pertaining their inclusion or exclusion from the squad.
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

As per the former selectors, speaking to all players at all times can be a very demanding task and not possible always either.
