Well, as everyone was anxiously waiting to see the players chosen for the upcoming series against South Africa, for many of the fans of Ravindra Jadeja, the news is not at all good. The selectors have decided to drop him from the series. It is pertinent to add that of late Jadeja was not able to show any sign of recovery neither in his batting nor through his bowling. It is really a sad development as many of his fans were having high hopes in his capabilities as an all-rounder. In fact had he performed even just reasonably good, owing to his role as an all-rounder, he would have secured a place in the team India.
He had lost his self-esteem. Even his performance as a good fielder had been stalled for a while. Many of his fans do believe that he failed to perform well under the stressful conditions and had totally lost his rhythm and consistency. Does this suggest the end of Dhoni’s clout in BCCI? Only time will tell.
Here are the squads:
T20 Squad: Dhawan, Rohit, Kohli, Raina, Rahane, Rayudu, Dhoni, Binny, Ashwin, Axar, Harbhajan, Mohit, Mishra, Sreenath Aravind, Bhuvneshwar Kumar
India Squad for 1st 3 ODIs: Dhoni, Dhawan, Rohit, Kohli, Rayudu, Raina, Rahane, Binny, Ashwin, Axar, Gurkeerat, Mishra, Bhuvi, Mohit, Umesh
