Azhar said – Surprised to not see Shami and Iyer in the team

At the same time, former Indian captain Mohammad Azharuddin is also unhappy with this decision of the selection committee. He expressed his displeasure by tweeting. Surprised to see Mohammed Shami and Shreyas Iyer not being there in the 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup. In my view, Shreyas should be in place of Deepak Hooda and Mohammed Shami should be in place of Harshal Patel.

Former chairman of the selection committee, Krishnamachari Srikkanth said

, “If I were the chairman of the selection committee, then Mohammed Shami would definitely be on the team. We are going to play the World Cup in Australia.

He has the pace and the ability to bounce. He can take wickets in the opening over. In such a situation, I would have kept Shami in the team instead of Harshal. There is no doubt that Harshal Patel is a good bowler, but given the circumstances, Mohammed Shami would have proved to be a better player.
