Answering questions over Rohit Sharma’s selection, BCCI has come out in support of their decision. “It is a measure to counter the bad luck Kohli would be carrying from RCB’s dismal performance. Further he is Sharmaji ka beta. The whole country knows they are the ideal selections.” justified the team selectors. Kohli has been through very bad times recently as his team managed to win only two out of 13 matches in this enitre IPL season.
In a press release BCCI clarified, “Despite Rohit’s average of 27 in the IPL 201, MI has managed to stay at the top. Apart from attending the toss, his only contribution in MI’s victory is his sheer luck”. The decision however has faced criticism from all corners. Talks of ignoring in-form players like Gambhir, Raina, Utthapa, Samson, Tripathi and many others have been trending all over.
But many fans have also come out in support of the decision & praised BCCI for taking the tough call. They argued that MI had defeated almost every team twice in the IPL until now except for RPS, out of respect for Dhoni. This was the reason why supporters of other teams were unhappy with the selection. Many also alleged that since form is temporary & class is permanent, there is no question about choosing anyone else.
Meanwhile BCCI has requested ASI to work upon Sharma to bring out his latent talent before the tournament. Earlier repeated attempts from the support staff of both MI & national team have failed to find his talent. Thus the experts in deep digging have been called upon to discover the hidden talent which has been missing in Rohit’s recent performance.
Insider sources allege that Rohit was selected on the precondition of providing free Jio connections to the entire squad. Our correspondent tried to get BCCI’s response on this but the call couldn’t connect as he had an Airtel 4G-sim.
