Why Did the Selectors Said NO to Dhoni at World Cup 2015?

07:44 - By Himanshu Suri 0

There were firecrackers as selectors sat down on Tuesday to pick the 15 men who would shield India's World Cup cricket title in Australia and New Zealand in the competition starting February 14.

The council likewise connected up with Test skipper Virat Kohli for a short collaboration, looking for his perspectives and illuminating him of the squad it had picked, making it clear who will have a more noteworthy say in all matters cricket.

The purpose of contradiction was around two spots, sources said. Dhoni had pushed for Murali Vijay as an extra opener and either Mohit Sharma or Varun Aaron as the fifth seamer. Of course, both Vijay, who has been in incredible structure in Australia all through the Test arrangement, and Mohit are Dhoni's partners in Chennai Super Kings in IPL T20 competition. Varun, who likewise is a piece of the Test squad in Australia, is from the captain's home state, Jharkhand.

Previously, determination councils have pretty much offered into the Dhoni, who as of late advertised his retirement from Test cricket. Before the 2011 World Cup, selectors shocked everybody by picking leg-spinner Piyush Chawla on Dhoni's interest. He obviously was the captain's fortunate mascot.

Two rounds of discourses resulted between the board and Dhoni, who is in Sydney with the group, and joined on phone call. Anyhow the board did not move.

Anyhow it may have some offering an explanation to do over its decision of Stuart Binny. On Tuesday, the all-rounder's dad Roger, who is a selector, touched base at the gathering more than an hour late as his flight was deferred.

Anyhow like when K Srikkanth, who as executive of selectors picked child Anirudha - a move that raised voices of clash of investment, this one, as well, cocked eyebrows and confronted firm safety from the group administration, sources said. Dhoni, it was learnt, needed a pro batsman or a bowler.

It stays hazy what part Binny, a batsman who bowls crease, will play in the squad.

Specialists have advocated it saying he would prove to be useful in New Zealand.

Anyhow India are playing minnows Ireland and Zimbabwe there and his administrations may not be required whatsoever.
