Vengsakar, who was chairman of nationwide selectors between 2006 and 2008, stated he was starting to lose religion in Ganguly as president. “When the IPL dates and venues had been being mentioned and organised, he was talking on behalf of the IPL chairman. Sadly, repeatedly he is sticking his neck out on behalf of those that are able to take choices and explaining them on their very own. Is he undermining their credentials? Or does he really feel he is aware of greater than the others?”
He stated he puzzled why Ganguly – who was elected as BCCI president in October 2019 – was talking on group choices and player-fitness points, which ideally ought to be addressed by the nationwide selectors. Former India left-arm spinner Sunil Joshi is the present choice committee head and chaired his first assembly in October whereas selecting squads for the Australia tour. Joshi has not spoken on the choices thus far.
“It is fairly astonishing to see Ganguly sporting so many hats as he speaks on behalf of the supposedly appointed chairman of selectors, Sunil Joshi, as to why ‘X’ was dropped and ‘Y’ was not chosen and why ‘Z’ was not thought-about, apart from how any person continues to not match,” Vengsarkar advised the Occasions of India on Monday.

Sharma was not named in any of the three squads for the Australia tour because of hamstring harm, however, a BCCI announcement on Monday stated he would be rested for the limited-overs leg of the tour and included within the Test squad. He’s at present main the Mumbai Indians within the IPL.
Final week, Ganguly had told PTI that Sharma had suffered a hamstring tear that would get “ruptured once more” if he performed too quickly. As a precaution, the BCCI didn’t wish to title him for the Australia tour. Ganguly additionally stated then that Sharma would journey to Australia if he “recovers”.
Vengsarkar spoke on the problem of Sharma enjoying within the IPL with harm whereas additionally not being chosen for the Australia tour on these grounds. “Rohit [is] surprisingly dropped from the Indian group for the tour as a result of the BCCI physio has dominated him out because of hamstring harm. Now, the query is: How did the Mumbai Indians physio declare Rohit match to play within the IPL? Why is there a discrepancy within the reviews of two physios?
“I actually do not know who calls the photographs whereas choosing the squad. Is it the BCCI officers or the selectors?”
