'At start of T20 WC, Rohit and Dravid made it clear that...': Karthik reveals why Chahal wasn't picked in India XI

Updated on Nov 18, 2022 05:51 PM ISTCaptain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid was immensely criticised for not getting Chahal in theOne of the big concerns veterans and experts had made after India's disappointing T20 World Cup exit in the semi-final was the absence of Yuzvendra Chahal in the team's playing XI. Unlike the 2021 edition, India had picked him in the squad, but this time missed out on the XI. He was among the only two players in the Indian team to not get a game time, along with Harshal Patel. Captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid was immensely criticised for not getting Chahal in the XI and teammate Dinesh Karthik revealed why. XI and teammate Dinesh Karthik revealed why.

 

13 of India's 15-man squad had appeared in at least one of the matches for India in the T20 World Cup. But Chahal was not picked. Despite veterans and experts making his case ahead of every match, the management went ahead of Ashwin as their lead spinner owing to his batting abilities and Axar Patel as the second choice.

While Rohit and Dravid was slammed for picking Ashwin over Chahal, Karthik, during his conversation with Cricbuzz revealed that both the leggie and Harshal were made clear at the start of the tournament that they would make the XI only if conditions favoured their presence or else they might have to sit out the entire tournament.

 

“They didn't sulk once or get upset once because they were very sure. At the start of the tournament they were said that under these conditions we would be playing you otherwise it might be hard. So they were very aware and were preparing in such a way that when get an opportunity they will try and do their best but there might be a chance that they end up not playing. So when that clarity is there from the coach and captain it makes the job easier for the player because you just start looking inward and think okay what do I do to start preparing better. That is what they were doing and had they been given a chance they would have given their best. This is a very high intensity tournament. As mentioned, he played a lot of matches for India and he knows the feeling of being dropped,” he said.

Jadeja a pathetic WT20 performer in history goes missing. They replace him with 2 more pathetic fake T20 all rounders while removing the only wrist spin option.  Dravid should restrict himself to coaching under-19 team.

I think Jaddu should be restricted to playing ODIs till WC...  And tests. 

It would be foolish to waste games on him In T20 cricket.  Shahbaz,  Sundar,  Tilak verma should get a long run.

If Jadeja is a pathetic Wt20 performer, what do you call Rohit. Did he ever perform after his one match in 2007 against SA? India got to semis despite his useless batting and captaincy and not to forget useless coaching.

 

How can any team overcome so many internal issues and win with 21/2 batsmen and 11/2 bowlers.

The two half baked all rounders are in only to cover for Rohit's failure. In a way i think Ashwin probably would have played livingstone/Rashid better than our batsmen.

What does it say about the selection policy ? Complete disconnect between plans and execution .. 

 

coach and captain would have worked on ideal team prior to the tour , for the selectors to pick people in the team and the coach  & captain telling them straight outright that they are not under consideration is a selection failure .. 

 

not defending Dravid or Rohith here .. I can’t imagine that they would not have thought about the ideal combination before the selections were made .. if the coach & captain agreed with selecting people just to sit them out the entire tournament , that is just pure evil . 
 

this bullshit reason on conditions is ridiculous, these act as though they have never toured Australia and don’t know the conditions they would experience .. every fan knows the difference between Adelaide , Sydney , Melbourne and Perth .. bull **** reasoning .. and cribuzz just ate it , bad journalism as well

See Dravid and Rohit biggest blunder was playing Rahul as opener even after his repeated failures. Nowhere did Rahul show any evidence that he was capable of scoring match winning innings. How could Pant be any worse than Rahul as opener.

If I am not wrong wrist spinner do not specifically depend on pitch. A quality wrist spinner can get turn on any pitch. It's the finger spinners who largely depend on pitch. Karthik is talking nonsense. Harshal Patel was wrong selection to begin with and has no conditions that will suit him Australia. Again shows how useless Dravid and Rohit are.

Think it's time to drop Jaddu from ODI too. Axar is a better bet if you want like for like replacement since world cup will be in India. I personally don't want either Jaddu or Axar. Go with wicket taking spinners.
