BCCI announced the 15-man squad for the upcoming two-match series on September 29, Rohit Sharma’s was not considered for selection. Instead, the selection committee included younger players such as Hanuma Vihari, Prithvi Shaw and Mayank Agarwal.

Rohit Sharma has played only 25 Test matches for India and made his debut in 2013. He has scored close to 1500 runs at an average of 39.97.

Not only, Harbhajan Singh, many cricket experts felt that Sharma deserved to be given another opportunity to cement his place in the side. However, the selection committee picked players who have performed tremendously well in first-class cricket in the past few seasons.
