The Board of Control for Cricket in India announced the 15-man squad for Australia T20I series just after Virat Kohli & Co wrapped up a 4-1 series win over the Aussies.
The Indian fans doesn’t seem to be too much happy with the selection as Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina are not part of the squad.
The star left-handed cricketers are the brightest prospects to watch out for particularly in the shortest format who are certain to leave the onlookers in awe by their impeccable batting instincts.

As the current committee members shrugged off Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina from the squad, things didn’t go down too well with the board as well as the fans.
At the drop of the hat, the Indian fans expressed their anger on the social media Twitter platform that set the platform by a storm.
According to the Indian team management, they have set certain standards for the players to make the cut into the team.
The return of Dinesh Karthik to the squad came as a surprise for the fans. Dhawan who missed the ODIs due to his wife’s illness is now back.
Ashish Nehra makes the cut into the squad and it will be interesting to see how he approaches to the game. Kedar Jadhav’s performance as a fielder has been below par so far.
No Indian is ranked in the top 10 spot as an all-rounder and Yuvraj Singh is ranked No.7 in the ICC all-rounders rankings whereas Suresh Raina who is daily sweating it out in fitness factors didn’t make the cut is disappointing as dry as dust.
Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma (VC), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (WK), Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ashish Nehra, Axar Patel
Here is how Twitter vent out their frustration after the selectors didn’t bat an eye on Yuvraj Singh and Suresh Raina:
