World Test Championship: Sarandeep Singh furious after Prithvi Shaw was not selected in the Test team


New Delhi: Former India selector Sarandeep Singh has questioned the Test team’s decision to ignore Prithvi Shaw. The BCCI’s Senior Selection Committee announced India’s Test team for the ICC World Test Championship final, which did not name Prithvi Shaw.

There was a lot of criticism of this decision of the management since Shaw was not in place in the team. Now Sarandeep Singh has called this decision wrong.

Former selector raised questions

On Shaw not being selected for the England tour, Sarandeep Singh said that it is too early to ignore a capable batsman like him.

Sarandeep Singh Singh said, ‘Shaw has the ability that Virender Sehwag used to do for the Indian team. You cannot ignore them so early in their career. He made a lot of runs in domestic cricket after being dropped from the team after the tour of Australia. He has also corrected his technical flaws and this could be seen in the Indian Premier League as well.

He said, ‘You have to support talented players like Shaw and Shubman Gill’.

Shaw’s great performance
