The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has officially announced the squads for the upcoming away bilateral series against New Zealand and Bangladesh respectively. There are some familiar faces and new players in the squad and seasoned campaigners like skipper Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and, KL Rahul have been rested for this white-ball series as a part of the workload management.
Meanwhile, pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah will be missing out on the upcoming limited-overs series as he continues to nurse his back injury and star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has also been excluded as he recovers from a knee injury.
However, there are some deserving players who have not been considered for this away bilateral series due to unknown reasons and without further ado, here’s a look at five of them.
1. Prithvi Shaw
This is arguably the biggest disappointment as Prithvi Shaw continues to play the waiting game despite showcasing consistent performances. He has been overlooked by the national selectors regularly even though he keeps performing outstandingly well again and again on the 22 yards in the domestic circuit.
Shaw has not been in the Indian team management’s scheme of things since July 2021 and had last donned the India jersey during an away limited-overs bilateral series against Sri Lanka.
The Mumbai cricketer was also not included in the Indian squad for the three-match ODI series against South Africa at home even when the Men in Blue had fielded a second-string squad with the T20 World Cup bound players being rested.
