The Indian squad for the T20 series against Ireland has been announced, and a total of 17 players, will be on the flight. The squad selected is more like the secondary one because the primary side is in England to play the last match of the Test Series. The selectors have a vast choice of talented cricketers across the board. Rahul Tripathi received his maiden call-up and rewarded for his excellent campaign in IPL. A number of big names failed to get a place in the squad. Prithvi Shaw didn’t get a place in the Indian T20 squad against Ireland which was announced BCCI. Even then some deserving players failed to get a place in the Indian Team. Shaw’s exclusion from the 17-member squad is quite shocking because he has established himself as an explosive opener for Delhi Capitals. Fans are not happy with his omission from the squad and want to know Why Prithvi Shaw is not selected in Indian Team against Ireland?
Indian Team is all set to travel to Ireland to play two T20 International matches in Dublin. This would be India’s first visit to Ireland since 2018. The two team have played against each other only on three occasions in T20s and it was Indian team who emerged victorious on all occasions. The 1st match of T20 series will take place on June 26 while the 2nd match will take place on June 28. Hardik Pandya has been appointed the captain of Indian Team for the series against Ireland.
Why Prithvi Shaw is not selected in Indian Team against Ireland?
The young opener of Delhi Capitals has been ignored by the selectors and Ruturaj Gaikwad is chosen ahead of him. Shaw is not being repeatedly considered for selection in the senior team becuase his fitness standards aren’t up to the mark. Shaw last played for Team India on the Sri Lanka tour. Shikhar Dhawan led a new-look squad on the tour.
Before the commencement of IPL 2022, the non-Test Indian cricketers attended a fitness camp at the National Cricket Academy. In that camp, Shaw failed to achieve the desired fitness mark. The young batsman failed the yo-yo test as he scored less than 15 in the test. A player has to touch the 16.5 mark in order to pass the test.
