Opening batter Prithvi Shaw once again failed to find a spot in the Indian team as the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced the team for the upcoming ODI series against Zimbabwe. The 15-member will be led by Shikhar Dhawan in the away series which begins on August 18 and will conclude on August 22 at the Harare Sports Club.

Prithvi Shaw will be disappointed to be ignored by the Indian team. So far, he has played six ODI matches for India, scoring 189 runs at an average of 31.50. He also had a decent Indian Premier League 2022 season for the Delhi Capitals team. In ten matches, the opener scored 283 runs at a strike rate of 152.97, including a couple of half-centuries. He also performed well for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy this year, but couldn’t convert his stats.

The 22-year-old last played for India in 2019 during the Sri Lanka series in July. On Saturday, the fans were disappointed that Prithvi Shaw was not included in the Indian team for the ODI series against Zimbabwe. The Indian selectors went ahead with the likes of Rahul Tripathi, Ishan Kishan, and Shubman Gill as the openers.

Let’s take a look at how the fans reacted to Prithvi Shaw’s non-inclusion:

Former cricketer Dodda Ganesh took to Twitter to express his disappointment over Prithvi Shaw’s non-inclusion. He expressed that the opener is an all-format player and it is “unbelievable” that he is not part of the limited-overs teams. Dodda Ganesh wrote,

Prithvi Shaw being completely ignored is really shocking. This young man has a game for all the formats. It’s unbelievable that he doesn’t find a place even in the second-string Indian white-ball sides #DoddaMathu #CricketTwitter”

Schedule and Indian squad for the Zimbabwe series:

The 15-member Indian squad will leave for Zimbabwe after the conclusion of the ongoing five-match T20I series against the West Indies. The upcoming three-match ODI series will be a good opportunity for youngster to showcase their skills at the international level. The first match will take place on August 18, followed by the second on August 20. The series will conclude on August 22, with all the matches set to take place at the Harare Sports Club.

Squad: Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Ishan Kishan (wicket-keeper), Sanju Samson (wicket-keeper), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohammed Siraj, Deepak Chahar.
