India vs Windies 2019: Fans Fume Over Non-Inclusion of Shubman Gill
Following the announcement of India’s three different squads for Windies tour, fans slammed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and selectors for the omission of a high-quality teenage batsman, Shubman Gill.
The enraged fans also asked why Gill has been overlooked from the squad. The right-handed batsman has been in a rich vein of form. He had recorded two fifties in ongoing India ‘A’ tour of Windies.
In the ongoing five-match series, Gill had scored 149 runs in first three fixtures at an average of 49.67.
Earlier, fans had criticised the selection panel for picking Kedar Jadhav, who had an ordinary performance in the recently-held World Cup.
Gill misses by a whisker:
Also, Hardik Pandya and Prithvi Shaw had missed out on the much-awaited list. Prasad remarked they’re not available. Shaw is recovering from a hip injury, whereas, Pandya had a troubled back.
During the squad announcement, Prasad in his press conference responded to one of the journalists question regarding Gill’s absence.
Moreover, Prasad reiterated that Gill will be considered as he is one for the future.
Earlier, Gill had made his ODI debut in January against New Zealand when KL Rahul faced suspension alongside Pandya following the infamous ‘Koffee with Karan’ show.
Meanwhile, Indian cricket fans had slammed BCCI on Twitter after Gills was overlooked for the ODI squad.
Gill keeps things simple:
Before breaking into the Indian Premier League (IPL), Gill had been in remarkable form with the bat in a domestic set-up.
Recently, the right-handed batsman had impressed one an all in the first-class set-up – Ranji Trophy. Besides, he had played a pivotal role for his state-side Punjab in the premium domestic competition.
Gill will be personally aiming to give his best to stay in the hunt after missing to make a final cut.
Also, Let’s have a look at some of the reactions from Shubman Gill’s fans:
No DK in t20 squad with the world cup being just an year away.
No Shubman Gill too
But KL Rahul is playing all 3 formats.
Why just Why?
The entire selection committee should be revamped by @BCCI if they plan to do something good for indian cricket.#INDvWI

What's wrong with @BCCI .Why Prithvi Shaw and S Gill are not in test and ODI squad respectively. What's the use of over-aged Kedar, who was struggling to get into team during WC. KL is also not reliable on good bowling pitches.#INDvWI pic.twitter.com/ursXtxaVKW

What is the point of playing Virat again and again when you can easily afford to play promising rookie Gill against a village in a pointless series? pic.twitter.com/zIXIbWfiXi

Very disappointed with #ShubmanGill exclusion !! This is the right time to blood him in and tell him 2023 is going to be yours !! Happy for #ShreyasIyer (Always in my XI) . Otherwise good job by the selectors !! #Bcci

Ok so no surprieses here all names are familiar. I would still prefer Shubman Gill in this squad pver Kedar since #TeamIndia is still picking Kedar Jadhav means they are not looking at 2023 World Cup yet. Also No rest for Captain Kohli an neither for Vice-Captain Rohit.
