‘India cap shouldn’t be given easily & quickly’ – Former Indian cricketer expresses his views on youngsters

The India tour of Bangladesh will kick start with three ODIs followed by two tests. This is the eleventh country where India would be playing in this calendar year. The first and second ODI will be played at Shere Bangla Stadium, Dhaka on December 4, and on December 7, 2022, respectively. The third ODI and the first test will be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram on December 10, and December 14 respectively. The second test and the final match of the series will be played in Dhaka. 

India’s ODIs core team will be seen together consisting of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, and KL Rahul would be seen playing together after a long time. They last played together in March 2021. The four of them together have featured in only six ODI matches since the 2019 50-over World Cup. 

A lot of batters used to bowl: Wasim Jaffer

Wasim Jaffar urged the selectors not to give Indian caps easily and quickly. He also said that the players should prove themselves worthy not only in Indian T20 League but also in domestic cricket as well. 

“Selectors don’t need to pick whoever does well in their 1st Indian T20 League season. Let them perform consistently for 2-3 seasons in FC too. Let them be fully ready. That’s a reason we confuse ourselves with the selection dilemma. Ind cap shouldn’t be given easily & quickly. It should be earned,” Jaffar tweeted.

The former India opener wants young all-rounder Washington Sundar should be included in the 50-over World Cup which is scheduled to take place next year. 

“I am really happy with Washington Sundar. If you see the teams of 2010 or even before, a lot of batters used to bowl and India had that luxury before when Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, and Sourav Ganguly used to bowl. However, in this team, you do not see a lot of batters do that. It is very unfortunate when Hardik Pandya or Ravindra Jadeja miss out on the matches as India find the sixth and seventh bowling options missing. India do need to look into this and Washington Sundar going ahead when looking at the 2023 World Cup,” added Jaffer.
