The Board of Control for Cricket in India announced the team for the Test, ODI and T20 series for the tour of Australia on Monday. There was a lot of discussion about not including Rohit Sharma due to injury, while Rishabh Pant has also been included in the Test team only. Another player who has not been named is Suryakumar Yadav of Mumbai Indians. Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was upset with the selectors’ decision. He expressed his anger at Twitter.
Harbhajan Singh requested the selectors of Team India to see the record of Suryakumar Yadav and said that different criteria are adopted for different people during the selection.
Harbhajan Singh tweeted, ‘I don’t understand what else Suryakumar Yadav needs to do for selection in Team India. He is performing every IPL and Ranji season. I think different rules are adopted for different people. @BCCI I request all the selectors to check their records. ‘
Suryakumar Yadav has been performing well for Mumbai Indians. He has scored 283 runs in 11 matches this season and is averaging 31.44. Yadav has scored two half-centuries.
