With the entire India talking about the 30 member preliminary squad for the ICC World Cup 2015 released today, many are sending raging messages over social media.

While the ‘aam janta’ puts up an emotional blame on the selectors for keeping ‘Dhoni’s favourites’ by putting up tweets saying “They have made a CSK team selection instead of Team India by mistake”, the BCCI has its decision backed by certain statistical figures of the “senior players” that have been omitted from the squad.

Keeping in mind the fact, that any of the omitted players aren’t in great shape since a long time, the decision isn’t really difficult to accept.

The question that arises here is, if the people of India still live in the era of Gambhir, Sehwag and Yuvraj and enjoy their strokes more than the youth of the current squad who are performing quite impressively.

Are they, through their emotional gestures, turning their back on the youth and probable future of cricket in India?

With sports like Pro Kabaddi, earlier this year and India Super League now, trying to get their foot in the door, is this end of the cricket craze and welcoming of a new change in choice?
