Twitter reacts as BCCI announced the Indian ODI and T20 squads

The squads for the limited over cricket versus England are announced by the BCCI on Friday and twitter is already filled with tweets on few unexpected inclusions. The main topic being the inclusion of Yuvraj who hasn’t played an ODI since 2013.

Virat Kohli has been named as the full-time Indian captain due to the unexpected resignation of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Dhawan, Ashwin, Jadeja who have been rested for the games against New Zealand are back in the team. KL Rahul is to be accompanied by Shikhar Dhawan as an opening batsman, who has missed out the recent ODI series against the Kiwis. Rohit Sharma is not in perfect shape and is still recovering from his injury.

The sensational youngster, Rishab Pant has been rewarded with a spot for the shortest format of the game. Suresh Raina couldn’t find a spot in the ODI squad but made it to the T20 squad. Manish Pandey has also been picked for the ODIs. Manish and Kedar would be fighting against the comeback man, Yuvraj for a place in the middle order.

Here is how twitter reacted to the Indian ODI and T20 teams:
