Team India’s selection selectors focus on captains choice Ravi Shastri Sunil Gavaskar Virat Kohli

New Delhi. Ravi Shastri’s tenure as coach is over now. Team India performed well in Tests and limited overs series abroad during Shastri’s time. But they could not win the ICC trophy. The pairing of Virat Kohli and Shastri was a hit. Meanwhile, a statement of Shastri is in great discussion. He said that the selectors choose only 15 players, the captain has no authority. Recently the team has been selected for the New Zealand series (India vs New Zealand). The series is starting from November 17. Is Shastri right, what has been the history of Team India. Let us tell you about this in detail.

If we look at Ravi Shastri’s statement according to the rules, then it can be considered correct. Not the team captain, but only the selectors nominated by the BCCI. But it is also true that which players should be given place in the 15-member team, in this the interests of the captain and the management are also kept in mind. Sunil Gavaskar, along with being a veteran player, has also been the captain of Team India. Ravi Shastri got a place in the team after the injury of Dilip Doshi on the tour of New Zealand in 1981. Then it was Gavaskar who advocated his inclusion in the team.

Azharuddin and Raju pair was a hit

Former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin brought many successes to Team India. In his time, it was necessary to have left-arm spin bowler Venkatapathy Raju in the team. Now talk about former veteran and captain Sachin Tendulkar, once in the team, many players including Vinod Kambli did not get a place in the team. Then he even called it the B team.

Ganguly was seen standing with the players

Sourav Ganguly kept many players in the team for a long time as a captain. Whether it is about Mohammad Kaif or Harbhajan Singh. Virender Sehwag or Yuvraj Singh. Talking about MS Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Suresh Raina got a place in the team under his captaincy. But when Virat Kohli became the captain, his attitude towards R Ashwin, Kuldeep was not the same. It is said about him that he does not give much chances to the players and makes frequent changes. But whether it is about Chahal or Mohammad Siraj. He was Kohli’s choice.

You must remember Ambati Rayudu. Before the 2019 World Cup, he was playing continuously at number-4 in Team India. But he was out of the team selected for the World Cup. It is clear from all these examples that the selectors always take care of the wishes of the captain. Even if they are not directly involved in team selection.
