Why Mohammed Shami left out? Selectors have picked 4 member PACE-ATTACK. Jasprit Bumrah & Harshal Patel as reported are back. Bhuvneshwar Kumar as expected is in team. Arshdeep Singh has been rewarded for his performances in the Powerplay and death overs.

Hardik Pandya will support the four-man pace battery.

It is learnt that both captain & coach were of the view – that in the Australian summer pitches will aid SPIN and the team needs to add variety in the attack.

According to the sources, in selection meeting it was a TOSS up between Shami & Ashwin. As both Dravid & Rohit were in favor of Ashwin, selectors bowed down to their demand. Besides adding variety, Ashwin was preferred for his experience of bowling on pitches Down Under.

The team management was of the view, that few sides are loaded with lefthanders. They felt more than Shami’s pace, Ashwin would be useful in curtailing their big-hitting ways.

Shami meanwhile has been picked for Australia and South Africa T20 Series.

“The fact remains that they have drafted Mohammed Shami as a standby for the World Cup also goes to show that maybe they still have doubts about Bumrah and Harshal’s fitness. That’s why perhaps they want to keep Shami in the loop,” former national selector Saba Karim told  Sportstar.

Speaking on Star Sports show ‘FOLLOW THE BLUES’ post the squad announcement, the ex-chairman of selection committee Kris Srikkanth said, “If I was the chairman of the selection committee, Shami is definitely in the team. We are playing in Australia, the guy’s got the real action, the guy’s got bounce, he can bare the moment and he can get on early wickets, so I would have probably got Shami instead of Harshal Patel.”
