BCCI exposes the reason for Rinku Singh’s omission

BCCI’s chief selector Ajit Agarkar today in a press conference with Rohit Sharma revealed the exact reason behind the omission of the star Indian finisher Rinku Singh. 

The Indian team announced their 15 members for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 which is going to start from June. In that list Rinku Singh who has a tremendous strike rate of 176.24 in international cricket, has been left out of the 15 and was included in the travelling reserve. This came as a huge shock to the Indian fans. 

Now today during a press conference the chief selector said,

“The toughest thing that we have to discuss. Rinku hasn’t done anything wrong, nor has Shubman Gill. It’s about the combinations. We are not quite sure about the conditions. So we wanted to have enough options (in bowling). We have picked a couple of wrist spinners, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, to give Rohit more options. There’s Axar, a bowling all-rounder. It’s just unfortunate.

I don’t think it has anything to do with him. It’s not Rinku Singh’s fault that he has missed out. With two keepers who are both terrific batters, there’s already an extra batter sitting. So we thought of having an extra bowling option. Rinku is a travelling reserve; that’s how close he was, it’s a little tough on him but at the end of the day, you can only pick 15.”

India will travel for the ICC event after the IPL final, where Rohit Sharma will be seen leading the team while Hardik Pandya will be his deputy.
