The Indian team management is currently angered over the issue which has created because of the axing of Murali Vijay and Karun Nair.
Cricket news: Both the players said they were not communicated before dropping them from the Windies series
Both the players were dropped from the Windies series and it is highly unlikely that they will make a comeback in the upcoming tour of Australia.
Murali Vijay had a horrible outing in England, where he played the first two Tests and scored just 20 in 4 innings. He was sent home and newcomers Prithvi Shaw and Hanuma Vihari was introduced to the team. It was later Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul who opened the innings for the last three Tests against England.
Karun Nair’s case was entirely different. He travelled with the team to England but did not get any opportunity to play a match during the five-match Test series.
However when the squad for the Windies series was announced, his name was not on the list. This surprised the entire cricketing fraternity and the Indian management was slammed for the decision. Nair scored a triple century in his debut Test series against England.
Both the players claimed that there were no sort of communication made from the management regarding their decision to omit them from the side, which created a big debate.
However sources close to the selectors claimed in a report from Times of India that communications were made, but the players had denied they had any form of communication from the management.
“Someone is clearly not telling the truth here. Now, either it’s the players or it’s the selectors. If they (BCCI/CoA) want to understand this better, why not just make the captain, coach, the senior cricketers and selectors sit across the table and hear them out? It’ll be immediately clear who is lying and who is not,” the source was quoted as saying.
After the series against the Windies gets over, India will travel to Australia for a lengthy tour in November where they will play a series in all three formats.
