New Delhi: The national selectors led by
The cut-off date is April 23 and the selectors have been waiting to watch the performance of some of the players in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) considering that the position of the No. 4 batsman and the fourth fast bowler is still up for grabs
Speaking to IANS, a senior Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official said that the selectors wanted to wait a bit before
“The selectors wanted to take it easy as they had time till April 23 to send in the squad for the World With the IPL on, it always helps to see how some of the boys are playing,” the official explained
While most of the players pick themselves, Ambati Rayudu and Rishabh Pant are the two main contenders for the No.4 slot in the batting department. While Rayudu has flattered to deceive in this edition of the IPL, Pant has shown his brilliance in flashes.
But his inability to finish games has been something that pundits have spoken about time and again in this IPL
The fourth pacer’s slot is something that the selectors will be sweating over as someone like a Navdeep Saini has been very impressive in the IPL for Royal Challengers Bangalore
Skipper Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri’s input will definitely be asked for before a final decision is made.
