The current situation of Indian Cricket is like a pool of cheese balls in the honey. Every ball is tastier to throw away from the plate while double cheese balls are waiting out of the plate to merge in. Every member of the current unit are exceptional players for India while the likes of Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul are knocking the selector’s door quite heavily.
Keeping all the rumours aside, Virat Kohli added a quite a statement quoting that he is very much interested in playing cricket in Sri Lanka ODI series and his words clearly meant that he is going to his drawing room once again to draw the plans against Sri Lanka in the limited over series.
With the selection dilemma is going on in everyone’s mind, Virat Kohli cleared that he has a crystal mind on the selection head aches and quoted that ”We are going to sit down on selection soon and we certainly have plans in mind and combinations that we want to speak about. So as captain I am definitely in the thick of things and know what to speak to the committee about.”
MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh’s future:
It is likely that MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh will be featuring in the upcoming ODI series against Sri Lanka. Though the quotes from BCCI official looks bleak in the selection of Yuvraj and MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli might vote to the veterans in terms of experience and the versatility that the both players bring on to the table.
On the other side, the return of KL Rahul and exceptional performance from Manish Pandey and Rishabh Pant in the recent tourneys also press the case of replacing the seniors. It is also possible that selectors might overlook Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant but Virat was clear that they want to give an extra run for Tamil Nadu batsman.
One of the BCCI officials said to DNA India that ”Can Yuvraj and Dhoni survive till the next World Cup is something which is bothering all of us in the BCCI.”
However, all the selection dilemma will end on Sunday as officials are set to announce the team. It is likely that Yuvraj Singh and Dhoni will feature in the squad. Most of the players in the team’s future will strictly base on the performances in the Sri Lankan tour.
