With the selection board resting two of the teams top spinners Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja again for the upcoming T-20 against Australia, the fans are angry with the cricket board.

Although the duo has no competition in test, the spinners are finding it hard to make it into the ODIs and T-20s. After being rested for the Sri-Lankan series, the spinners have been once again left out in the T-20 against Australia.

Meanwhile, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav's performances in the recent games have not made the board question their decision.

Notably, the two spinners have not been a part of the team in the majority of T-20s and ODIs series since 2015.

The players have been rested by the selectors in their experiments to find the perfect team for the much anticipated 2019 World Cup. On the other hand, players have been doing well in foreign series.

After the announcement of the T-20 team on Sunday, fans had a strong response to the decision.

Here are a few:

Not to mention, it's not like Jadeja and Ashwin don't have as much experience in the game format. Yet, right-hand off break spinner Ashwin, in the past 2 years took only 11 wickets in the 12 ODIs at a 5.79 economy rate.

Jadeja however, replaced Axar Patel in the first 3 ODIs against Australia but couldn't manage a place in the series.
