India has not picked any fast bowler with extra pace in the T20 squad

India has not picked any fast bowler with extra pace in the T20 squad for the South Africa series.

According to the chairman of selectors Sandeep Patil, the selections have been done keeping in mind the nature of the pitches that the teams are likely to encounter.

The three games of the series are going to be played in Dharamsala, Cuttack and Kolkata respectively.

While, Dharamsala is a batting wicket, the other two are the sluggish ones where the ball does not sit up to be hit and the bowlers, who believe in change ups, get facilitated the most.

The Indian captain MS Dhoni had pointed out earlier this year that rather than raw pace, a little more emphasis should be paid on skills when it comes to picking the bowlers for the subcontinent games.

So, the captain’s views might also be taken into account by the selectors.

However, for the ODI series that is to follow just after the T20 one, Umesh Yadav has been picked.

Yadav was a hero for India in the bowling department during the World Cup, but, he was really reckless against Bangladesh and Dhoni was indirectly critical about him addressing the press at the completion of that tour. (more…)

Yuvraj Singh says no matter if he is handed a national recall or not

Yuvraj Singh says no matter if he is handed a national recall or not, he would not leave Cricket till he finds enjoyment playing it.

Yuvraj has been featuring for Punjab in domestic circuit this season and has been able to do well so far, but, still, has failed to get himself noticed by the Indian selectors.

However, that isn’t concerning him. His focus is on to score as many runs as he can for Punjab.

Talking to a local daily in Chandigarh the other day, the left hander said, “The reason why we all got into Cricket in our childhood was the fact that it was great fun playing it. And, it’s still fun for me and as long as it is so, you would see me being active in the game.”

“Yes, representing your nation is always a privilege and it’s something that you want to do as a professional player. So, I am hopeful that another chance comes my way, but, I would only be able to earn that opportunity for myself if I do well in domestic Cricket. So, focusing on these matches is the most important thing for me at the moment.” (more…)
