Indian team was announced on July 19 for the upcoming West Indies tour which includes 3 ODIs , 3 T20Is and 2 tests.
Though the team look balanced but there was a big miss which was considered to be a favourite :- Shubman Gill. He scored 3 half-centuries and amassed 218 runs in five matches played against West Indies A.
While the players from India A squad– Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar,Navdeep Saini, Khaleel Ahmed, Rahul Chahar and
Deepak Chahar got the chance to play in ODIs and T20Is, Shubman Gill didn’t get the chance even to play across one format.
Having being left out from the team, Shubman Gill felt disheartened but seemed optimistic at the same time as he stated “It was disappointing not to get picked but i am not going to spend time thinking over it. I’ll keep scoring runs and perform to the best of my ability to impress the selectors.”
Chief selector Msk Prasad mentioned Gill’s name in a conference and clarified that he is in the waiting list as of now.
It’s really a big thing to represent India on international stages but one needs to be talented and lucky at the same time. We have witnessed many a players who had so much potential in them but luck never really favoured them. We hope that we’ll see some serious talent like Gill in Indian team in near future.
