India’s Tour Of West Indies: The selectors are now facing constant criticism over the team selection for the Indian team’s 2-match Test series for the West Indies tour. Former Indian opening batsman Wasim Jaffer has now asked 3 important questions on the selection of the Test team. The Indian team had to face defeat by 209 runs against Australia in the World Test Championship (WTC) final.
After this defeat of Team India, some players from the Test team were considered to be discharged. Cheteshwar Pujara and Umesh Yadav have not been given a place by the selectors in the Test team for the West Indies tour. Mohammed Shami has been rested for the Test series. At the same time, Rituraj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal have been included in the team as new players.
In the 3 important questions that Wasim Jaffer has asked on the selection of the Test team, he has first targeted the decision to include 4 opening batsmen in the team. Jaffer wrote in his tweet that the decision to include 4 opening batsmen for the series of only 2 Test matches is beyond comprehension. I want to ask BCCI why an additional middle order batsman was not included instead. Sarfaraz should have been given a place in the team. Without Pujara, the middle order of the team looks a bit weak. Who will bat at number 3 is also not decided.

Is the selection of test team being done on the basis of IPL?,
In the second question Jaffer asked regarding team selection, he targeted the Test team selection on the basis of IPL. Jaffer wrote that players like Easwaran and Panchal are consistently performing well for Ranji and the India A team. Was he not selected in the team just because he doesn’t play IPL? After all, how suddenly Rituraj got selected in the team.
At the same time, Wasim Jaffer has also targeted Mohammad Shami for being rested for this Test series. According to Jaffer, Shami has got a long break of about 1 month after the WTC final. I think a bowler like him should keep playing continuously so that he gets better.
