ganguly

NEW DELHI: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly on Wednesday questioned the omission of veteran Ajinkya Rahane and youngster Shubman Gill from the ODI squad for the tour of West Indies, urging the selection committee to be consistent with their policies. It must be noted that Gill has been in top form and recently became man-of-the-series in the List A games in West Indies.

The former Indian captain took to Twitter to take a dig at the selectors stating the main agenda should be picking the best possible team and not making people happy. "Time has come for Indian selectors to pick same players in all formats of the game for rhythm and confidence. Too few are playing in all formats. Great teams had consistent players. It's not about making all happy but picking the best for the country and be consistent @bcci. Here are many in the squad who can play all formats ..surprised not to see Shubman Gill. Rahane in the one-day squad," he tweeted.

Gill has already expressed his disappointment at not being picked in the squad for the limited-overs series in the Caribbean. The MSK Prasad-led selection committee picked India's squads for the T20I, ODI and Test squads for the tour of West Indies on Sunday. Except for skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja and KL Rahul, no Indian player features in all 3 formats for the West Indies tour.
