Former Indian World Cup winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has not been included in Team India for the forthcoming series against the West Indies, making cricket lovers across the globe take to social media to denounce the squad's lineup.
Even though former Indian skipper M. S. Dhoni was not in the running to get a call-up for the forthcoming West Indies home series, fans were quick to highlight the wicketkeeper conundrum Team India is currently facing in the shorter formats.
Stupid selection ahead of world T20. Thank you MSK Prasad for destroying our WC dream, for destroying Indian cricket single handly. #BringBackDhoni#BringBackDhoni#BringBackDhoni#BringBackDhoni#BringBackDhoni@MSKPrasad_ @SGanguly99 @BCCI @imVkohli pic.twitter.com/RP3rcfUCmw— Ananya Dutta (@Ananya___D) November 21, 2019

• I'm really lucky to play under the leadership of MSD. -MICHAEL HUSSEY
• I'm learning the ropes of captaincy from MSDhoni. -Bravo
• MSD is the cleverest captain I have even seen. -Kevin Pietersen#BringBackDhoni
In India, where cricket is loved by millions of fans, no stone was left unturned on the selection of the under-fire Rishabh Pant, who has been getting endless chances, and illogical snubbing of Sanju Samson, who made it to the Indian squad after four years in the recently concluded Bangladesh T20I series. However, he failed to receive a single start in the Bangladesh series.
Hard on Sanju Samson but I guess he is much better off playing games rather than just travelling around. Big vote of confidence in Rishabh Pant but the team will expect more from him.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) November 21, 2019
Is this selection committee or rejection committee? Based on performance and recent form @IamSanjuSamson should have been included. Is it that @BCCI is biased against South Indian players?— SaintLucifer (@Light_beare_r) November 21, 2019
Pant has been performing very poorly and immaturely, this is bias from bcci#SanjuSamson
Virat Kohli, the Indian captain and Co. are scheduled to play three T20Is and as many ODIs against the West Indies which will begin with the series-opener in Mumbai on 6 December.
