Sourav Ganguly surprised with exclusion of Shubman Gill, Ajinkya Rahane from ODI squad for West Indies: Former captain Sourav Ganguly has expressed surprise with the exclusion of Shubman Gill and Ajinkya Rahane from the ODI squad for the upcoming three-match series against West Indies. He said that there are many players selected by the BCCI’s selection committee who can play in all the three formats of the game. Ganguly opined that the time has come for the selectors to pick the same players in Test, ODI and T20 formats to gain confidence and rhythm.
The left-handed batsman said that the great teams had consistent players, adding that it is not about making all of them happy but to make the best team for the country. Ganguly also questioned the featuring of only few players in all formats. These include Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul.
