Meanwhile, some of the experts and fans were surprised with Krunal Pandya’s selection over Chahal in the first game. A few also pointed out that all-rounder Ravindra could have been the right option, as he had a lot of experience in his back. Though Virat backed Krunal, he went wicketless and gave away 55 runs in his full quota of four overs.

Furthermore, the left-hander also failed to provide runs with his bat. He only managed to score two off four balls. The elder of the Pandya brothers is now placed third on the list of worst bowling figures by an Indian in the shortest format of the game. Previously, Joginder Sharma and Yuzvendra Chahal got named on the unwanted list.

In addition to, the left-arm spinner made his T20I debut against the Windies in the recently concluded T20I series. However, he had a good outing on his debut at Eden Gardens where he picked up a wicket and had scored 21 runs to gain a victory over the Carribean side. In the next two matches, he didn’t get the opportunity to bat and failed to scalp a single wicket as well.

Meanwhile, the fans trolled the 27-year-old on Twitter and also said how team selection cost India in the game:
