    Exclusion of Rinku Singh has resulted in disappointment in fans

    Has Mohammed Siraj picked wickets for RCB?: Rohan

    Some players are going there on reputation; Sehwag

The Indian squad for the T20 World Cup to be held in the West Indies and the United States of America (USA) in June 2024 was announced by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on April 30th. The exclusion of Indian batsman Rinku Singh from the 15-man squad has resulted in disappointment in a section of fans. Whether his recent form in the Indian Premier League was the basis for this decision is a question among fans. “If IPL 2024 is the metric, where has Mohammed Siraj picked wickets for RCB? Suryakumar Yadav… he was always in my team, and he should be there in T20 World Cup too. But even he hasn’t performed,’ former Indian batsman Rohan Gavaskar said during an interaction on Cricbuzz.

Former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag who was present in the discussion was however of the opinion that the doors are still open for Rinku Singh for tournaments that will be conducted in the future. “Some players are going there on reputation. Like Suryakumar, his reputation is that he is an explosive hitter. Yes, he can have bad days. Rinku Singh is also like him, the difference is that he is young and Suryakumar is experienced. And Indian selectors have preferred experience. Rinku is young, he can play later, too. We said after the previous World Cup that Rohit and Virat won’t play in 2024, but this time, I’m sure they won’t play the next,’ Sehwag mentioned.
