As soon as Team India was selected for the T20 World Cup, a round of reactions started regarding the team. It also includes many former cricketers who put forward their point of view about this squad. In the same sequence, former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin also gave a reaction on Twitter, after which he got trolled on social media. In fact, Deepak Hooda has got a place in the 15-member team while Shreyas Iyer has been kept as a standby. Mohammad Azharuddin expressed his surprise by tweeting on the team selection. In the tweet, he expressed his surprise about giving preference to Deepak Hooda over Shreyas Iyer.
Not only this, he has also given his reaction to keep Mohammed Shami out of the last 15. He wrote on the team selection that I would have included Shreyas Iyer in place of Deepak Hooda and Mohammed Shami in place of Harshal Patel. Azharuddin is not the first who has reacted to Shami not being included in the last 15, but former selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth has also said so. Team India’s bowling was the weak link in the Asia Cup. In such a situation, everyone expected that Team India would give more importance to its fast bowling on the fast pitch of Australia, but the team has included 4 fast bowlers. The return of Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel is definitely news of relief for the team, but former cricketers are giving their feedback about keeping Shami on standby.
