You too must have read in childhood that it is impossible to understand the mystery of Bermuda Triangle. But nowadays the selection of Team India is giving a tough competition to this mystery. You may also understand the mystery of Bermuda Triangle sooner or later Team India Will not be able to understand the selection of Recently, the BCCI had invited applications for the new selection committee by removing all the existing selectors. When that selection committee will be formed and will work afresh, we will talk about that too, but for now let’s talk about the current Team India. Before this discussion, let us tell you that currently the Indian team is going to play ODI series in New Zealand. Shikhar Dhawan is handling the command of that team. Earlier, Team India has defeated New Zealand in the T20 series.
Hardik Pandya was handling the command of the T20 team. Wait, it’s not over yet. After the New Zealand series, when Team India will play the ODI series against Bangladesh, its captain will be Rohit Sharma. Current ODI captain Shikhar Dhawan will not even be his deputy ie vice-captain, KL Rahul will play the responsibility of vice-captain. If you have understood this equation, then the next equation is more difficult.
Huge confusion in selection of players
There are 8 players of the team playing in the ODI series against New Zealand who are not a part of the team selected against Bangladesh. First let’s name these players – Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh and Umran Malik. Now let’s come to the questions – there are many questions. What is the basis for keeping these 8 players out? If these players are being given rest, have they even asked for rest? What is the basis of relaxation? If Kuldeep Yadav or Umran Malik took ten wickets in three matches in the series against New Zealand, on what basis would you not play them in the next series? The same question applies to a batsman like Shubman Gill. Overall, the bottom line is that more than half of the players in the 14-member team against New Zealand will not play the next series.
Does the return of players like Virat, Rohit cause problems?
Taking rest for tall players is not a new phenomenon in Indian cricket. This has been happening. Will continue to happen in the future. But the real problem comes when these players return to the team. Players playing in their absence know that they will not be able to do charisma even after charismatic performance. To understand this, you can see the recent interview of Deepak Hooda. Where he was asked at which position he wanted to bat in the team. He clearly said that he cannot play at number three or four. Because big veteran players play there, it is ‘practical’ to think only about number five. Later, there was a lot of reaction to his interview. Neither Rohit Sharma nor Virat Kohli are there in the current series against New Zealand, but in the series against Bangladesh, these two players will come back, so the place of 2 out of 8 players will remain the same. Went. The remaining 6 players are left, the mystery of their exit is still intact.
How will new players be identified
This story is similar to what happens in playback singing of Hindi films. This trend is very old when a new singer records a song instead of a big singer. This happens when big singers don’t have time. After the recording of the song, the shooting of the film continues. Later, on the arrival of the big singer, he records the same song in his own voice. In such a situation, the song with the voice of the established singer is used instead of the song with the voice of the new singer. This tradition has been going on since the time of veteran singers like Mukesh, Rafi, Kishore, Lata ji. The trouble is that there are two big differences between singing and cricket. One form another fitness. The player loses his form and fitness. Such is the story of hundreds of players.
This thing makes a big impact in ICC tournaments
These days the Indian team is not able to win ICC tournaments. His last win in an ICC event came in the 2013 Champions Trophy. Recently, our team was defeated by England by a huge margin of ten wickets in the T-20 World Cup semi-finals. There can be many reasons for this. But just think that the constant changes in the team is a big reason for this? If faces change everyday in the dressing room, how will mutual understanding among the players ‘develop’? When players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Jaspreet Bumrah are together in the same team, then who will decide their role, we have written these names because they have captained in recent times. The problem is not that players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, Shikhar Dhawan, Jasprit Bumrah are in the same team.
This is the strength of Team India. The problem is why other players who are selected except these players are not given stability? We expect consistency from new players but do we show consistency with their place in the team? If this consistency was shown then 8 players of this series would not have been out of the next series. Having multiple options in any team is an advantage – but only as long as the strategy regarding those options is clear and unnecessary confusion is not created. But the current Indian team is stuck in this mess. Until this confusion is removed – ICC world cup The trophy will not come near. Now there is about a year’s time in the 50-over World Cup. In this one year, there should be talk only about those players with whom the selectors can also show their consistency.
