Shastri wants a say in the selection.

A Cricket Advisory Committee member revealed that Shastri was not happy with the fact that he didn’t have a say in the team’s selection.

“Shastri wasn’t amused with the fact that he was kept out of selection meetings from quite some time where only the captain sat with the selectors to pick the team,” CAC member told India Today.

“He basically suggested the team management didn’t get the players they wanted in the middle order for the World Cup. Although the team management doesn’t have a vote in selection meetings, Shastri wants both the captain and coach’s inputs to be taken in selection meetings,” the CAC member added.

Meanwhile, India hasn’t been able to cross the semifinal stage in the major events and they would like to cross the last two hurdles. The Men in Blue had reached the semifinal of the 2015 World Cup, 2016 T20I World Cup and the recently concluded 2019 World Cup. Furthermore, they had reached the final of the Champions Trophy in 2017.

Moreover, India has had its issues in the middle order and they haven’t been able to get a permanent number 4 batsman. Consequently, there is work to be done for Shastri and Co. and it all begins with the team’s selection.
