So in this article, let us tell you about the 3 decisions taken by the Indian selectors, which have shocked everyone.
1-Giving chance to Rituraj and Devdutt together
Team India selected for Sri Lanka tourAnd Rituraj Gaikwad has got the place. Both the players deserved the selection, as they have done well for their respective franchises in the IPL for some time now and have also batted very well in domestic cricket as well.
But it is surprising to see that both the players have got the same opportunity. Actually, both of them are opening batsmen and apart from this, Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan have been selected in the team. In such a situation, it is expected that Dhawan-Shaw will open, so the selection of these two together as a backup is beyond expectation.
