The Chief Selector MSK Prasad selected the squad for all three formats for the upcoming tour of West Indies. The selector said that they had kept in mind the performances of India A tour. The selectors have selected names like Manish Pandey, Navdeep Saini and others for the tour. However, there was no trace of youngster Shubman Gill in the team. This annoyed the netizens and they posted angry tweets with his non-inclusion in the squad. India Squad For West Indies Tour 2019 Announced: Virat Kohli To Captain Side; MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya Rested.

The social media users flaunted stats and said that he is much more deserving than Manish Pandey at number four. Shubman Gill scored a couple of half-centuries successively after his blistering 109 runs against Sri Lanka last month. Manish Pandey who scored century from 86 balls was instead selected for the team boarding the bus for Windies. This baffled the netizens and they posted angry tweets

This social media user seems very angry.

No surprises!

Too good to be dropped.

Questions to be answered.

Talking about the selection, MS Dhoni is unavailable whereas, Jasprit Bumrah has been rested for the shorter format of the game and has been picked for the Test matches. The chief selector remained tight-lipped on MS Dhoni’s retirement but also said that they are grooming youngsters. Rishabh Pant has been selected for all the three formats of the game. All eyes will be on the youngster as the onus is on him to fill in the shoes of MS Dhoni. Hardik Pandya has been rested for the series.
