Twitter Slams Team India After Rishabh Pant And Shubman Gill’s Omission From First Test Squad

Cricket fans on Twitter were unhappy after team India excluded Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill from the side of the opening Test against Australia.

Twitter erupted after team India announced their squad for the first Test against Australia that begins tomorrow at Adelaide. Surprisingly two talented youngsters Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill have not found a place in the squad for the first test. Both Pant and Gill were expected to feature in the playing XI after they had a successful outing in the second practice match against Australia A.

Shubman Gill scored a fine half-century whereas Pant activated his beast mode and smashed a brilliant century. Still, the team management decided to pick Prithvi Shaw over Gill and specialist wicket-keeper Wriddhiman Saha ahead of Pant. Following this cricket enthusiast on Twitter slammed the management for not including Pant and Gill for the opening test.

Twitter Slams Team India After Rishabh Pant And Shubman Gill’s Omission

Usually, the Indian team is only confirmed at the toss but BCCI updated fans about the playing XI one day before the Adelaide Test. Before the selection, it was assumed that Gill will make his Test debut and open alongside Mayank Agarwal. Same goes for Pant as fans on Twitter expected him to get a nod ahead of Saha as he was part of 2018-19 India squad and scored up a century at SCG.

Nevertheless, the team selection once again annoyed India fans and they immensely criticised the management on Twitter. Shaw failed in both the practice matches ahead of the Test series and Saha is coming into the side after recovering from an injury. The Indian side went in with specialists and preferred them over Gill and Pant.

Once Virat Kohli leaves after the first Test, Gill is expected to replace him from the second Test. As far as Pant is concerned he will only find a place in the side if Saha fails with both bat and behind the stumps. Here’s how Twitter reacted after Rishabh Pant and Shubman Gill weren’t included in the side for the first Test.
