Former India selector Sarandeep Singh backed the decision of the defending committee to exclude Hardik Pandya from the Test squad and said that if the all-rounder did not contribute to the bowling, he would not be eligible for a place in the smaller format. Hardik underwent surgery again in 2019. Since then, he has not been bowling regularly and the team is not taking advantage of his all-round skills. For this reason, he was not included in the Indian Test squad for the tour of England.
Sarandeep’s tenure ended with the tour of Australia this year. The talented Prithvi Shah was surprised that she was not included in the squad for the England tour. Former India spinner Sarandeep told PTI, “The decision of the selectors to ignore Hardik for the Test match makes sense. After the surgery, he could not bowl regularly. I think he is less than 10 formats. You can’t just play like a batsman.

“If Hardik does not bowl, it affects the balance of the team. You have to put in an extra bowler, so you have to exclude a player like Suryakumar Yadav. We’ve seen the impact of that against us. , Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja), Shardul Thakur has other all-rounders in his form. He has shown that.
When Shah was not selected for the England tour, it was too early to ignore a potential batsman like him. “Shah has the potential to be used by Virender Sehwag for the Indian team. You can’t ignore him early in his career. He has scored a lot in domestic cricket since leaving the team after the tour of Australia,” he said. His technical shortcomings have also been corrected and can be seen in the Indian Premier League.

He said you have to support talented players like Shaw and Shubman Gill. Sarandeep has questioned the choice of four standby players for the England tour. Abhimanyu Eshwaran, Avesh Khan, great Krishna and Arjan Nagwaswala will join the Indian team as standby players. Priyank Panchal scored a century for India A in New Zealand. You have not picked them, you have not picked Devadut Padikkal who has scored enough. It is inconceivable why Jaydev Unadkat is ignored by the left-arm fast bowler. He has taken a record 67 wickets in the last Ranji.
