Robin Uthappa Ignored once again.
Its M vijay who has been replaced for Sehwag who has suffered mysterious shoulder injury where he will not be taking part in the Upcoming T20 world cup…
I mean this is not the new thing that we are hearing like, politics in Indian cricket, or Players from Karnataka Ignored all these years, there was a time when there were nearly 6 players from Karnataka itself in the Indian playing 11 with the likes of Rahul Dravid, Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, Venkatesh Prasad, Dodda Ganesh, Sujith somsundar, but today its only Rahul Dravid the lone man from Karnataka, but Politics and Groupism is taking it full effect with Kris srikanth selecting only TN & chennai superkings players and Dhoni favouring his buddies from his place with the likes of Raina, Jadeja also his friends like Rohit sharma and many others, Even after performing and proving his mettle Uthappa is once again sidelined and M vijay has been given chance, I agree he is a technically correct batsmen, but we need people who can clear the ropes easily and at the moment Uthappa can do that all day with the sizzling form that he is in, He has scored the most number of sixes in this IPL and has won nearly 4 games by himself for RCB, we need batsmen like him to be in Indian T20 squad..
This is absurd, Kris srikanth & Dhoni are all in favour of Groupism and Regionalism where they are selecting people not on merit but people who are close to them, and Indian cricket is suffering like anything, There was a time when proven performers were getting their chance but now its all gone, there is too much of politics taking place and its all about cleaning garbage for the captain and the selector for which they are getting selected in Indian team & not the performance, atleast Vinay kumar got selected, but I am so sure that Dhoni will not give him a chance, even if he gives then if something goes wrong he will be the first to point his finger on someone like vinay kumar for that matter…......Its all happening and we supporters of Indian cricket who watch all these matches can clearly chart out which is the best playing 11 for India at the moment, and no cricket team in the world would have left out a batsmen like Robin uthappa from their team, and as earlier said other teams are happy that Robin uthappa is not playing in the world cup….what a shame for Indian Team, its selectors and especially Dhoni who is playing a big role in this…..
With all this happening one question strikes me a lot, Whether players from Karnataka or any other state for that matter get a chance to play in the Indian team based on their merit and form??????
From my side the answer is a Big NO.
