India was defeated by England in the T20 World Cup semi-finals.
BCCI sacked all the selectors.
New Delhi. Team India had a great start in the T20 World Cup. But in the semi-finals against England, the team had to lose their dreams due to some mistakes. The team also faced criticism after suffering defeat in the knockout match. At the same time, now the selectors of Team India have also had to bear the brunt of this. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has sacked all the selectors with immediate effect. One of these names is also that of Chief Selector Chetan Sharma.
Meanwhile, former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has started rubbing salt on the burn. He believes that a bad team was selected by the selectors, for which he had to bear the brunt. Salman Butt also raised questions regarding the selection of fast bowlers. Significantly, in place of Team India’s star pacer Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami was given a place in the World Cup team. However, Arshdeep Singh did not let him miss. The young bowler impressed everyone with his performance from the very first match.
The selectors will have to answer for this – Salman Butt
Salman Butt said during a conversation on YouTube, ‘Some people must have felt that the selectors have been made scapegoats. But according to me it is not so. Why weren’t fast bowlers selected keeping in mind the Australian conditions? What was the reason behind not having a great fast bowler in the team? Didn’t he know that he was going to Australia for the T20 World Cup and was going to play a match in Perth? If you have a great fast bowler in your team, he can perform in any field. The selectors will have to answer for these things.
