Midway through the IPL many countries announced their 15 member squads for the ICC T20 World Cup. And as things usually happen, the guys who didn’t get selected suddenly found the middle of their bat or their bowling rhythm. The effect of this is that on many cricket portals and forums, these standard questions get raised:
“Why no Uthappa in the Indian team?“
When you have Raina, Rohit Sharma, Gambhir, Sehwag (at that time), Yusuf Pathan and Yuvraj (inspite of his pot belly), where’s the space?
“Why Chawla and not Ojha?“
Probably the only valid question. And still unanswered.
“Why no Murali Vijay?“
One question that has been deactivated so to speak. But the Uthappa question became even more shriller.
“Why Vijay and not Uthappa?“
The questions were not just about the Indian team.
“Why didn’t Australia pick Bollinger?“
I guess they didn’t see him good enough. Or, given that it is the Australian team, the ones who have been selected are better. Having said that, with Brett Lee’s injury, Bollinger was in with the chance of getting a call up. Unfortunately for him, it’s Harris who’s in.
Tomorrow onwards, this question is going to be top of the charts.
