BCCI Thrashed For Not Including Dinesh Karthick In Upcoming ODI’s !! Fans Very Much Disappointment !!

Dinesh Karthik’s exclusion from the Indian squad for the five-match ODI series against Australia came as a big shock for many as the MSK Prasad-led BCCI selection committee announced the teams on Friday. Karthik, despite playing crucial knocks down the order in the four matches he played this year, was replaced by young Rishabh Pant as the second-wicketkeeper in the contest against Aaron Finch’s side.

Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul have been recalled to India’s 15-member squad for the upcoming five-match ODI series against Australia. Dinesh Karthik, on the other hand, has been axed from the squad for the series, which will be India’s last 50-over assignment before the 2019 World Cup.

“We have included him [Pant] considering the fact that he is a left-hander and we are going to discuss with the team management. We will try and figure the best possible batting position for Pant. With a left-hander in the side, there is an advantage of left-right combination,” MSK Prasad, India’s chairman of selectors, said. “We want to give Pant a few ODIs before taking a final call on World Cup.”

On this decision of BCCI, fans really got  shocked and disappointed. On choosing pant over well performing Karthick, fans frustrated and called it as dirty politics.

Karthik has been exceptional with the bat in the little opportunity he managed to get in the ODI format. Since 2017 Champions Trophy, He has played 20 matches for India scoring 425 runs at an average of 47.22 which includes eight unbeaten knocks. And in 2018, he played a key role in two of India’s win by scoring two unbeaten innings of 25 and 38 in Australia and New Zealand respectively.
