The Cricket fraternity hits the selectors of India by the omission of Karun Nair of the fifth test

Cricket Fraternity Slams India Selectors For Karun Nair

The cricket fraternity questioned the Indian cricket team's selectors on Friday for omitting the second-order batter Karun Nair of the team for the fifth Test against England. Karun was included in the 18-man squad for the ongoing five-game test series, but could not find a place in the eleven player. Nair, appeared for the last time in a test match for India against Australia in March 2017. Well-known names in the cricket fraternity such as Aakash Chopra, Harsha Bhogle and Subramaniam Badrinath took to Twitter to close the selection. "It is quite intriguing that no one is talking about the possibility of playing Karun Nair … If India wants to play 6 batters, it should be the first option, if playing bowling is the deciding factor, it's another question … #Intercambio", Aakash Chopra tweeted.

"Hanuma Vihari is an incredible young man without a doubt, but the correct selection would have been Karun Nair, the system and the process are the roots of the long-term success #ENGvIND," ​​said Subramaniam Badrinath.

"The selectors of India have just made a damning statement of what they think of Karun Nair as a player, very, very hard for him, I would love to hear what they said when the team was announced," said Harsha Bhogle.

Karun Nair has made six appearances for India in the longest format of the game. He has an average of 62.33 of the seven innings he has played.

Karun Nair also has the highest score in an unbeaten test of 303, which he scored against England in 2016. .
