From Test, Yuvraj pushed to the Rest
Selection committee chairman Krish Srikkanth said the criteria for selecting the team was performance and fitness. “We don’t have to give any particular reason (for dropping Yuvraj). I think, performance and fitness... everything is taken into account. That itself answers the question,” Srikkanth said.
Srikkanth said by virtue of his fine performance in the domestic circuit, Pujara has powered his way into the national squad. “Pujara has done very well in the domestic circuit in the last couple of seasons. He is a good player and also did well in the ‘A’ series. With the sheer weightage of his performace he has muscled his way into the team. You will have to give credit to his domestic performance,” he said. “We have given weightage to performance in domestic A series and it is not that overall performance of every player hasn’t been taken into account. We have consulted (coach) Gary Kirsten and MS Dhoni and ultimately, this was the consensus,” the chairman of selectors added.
