Ind vs SL: Team India got new captain in Test cricket, Rohit Sharma got the responsibility
The journalist questioned Hardik Pandya’s fitness and said that it is because he is not playing in domestic cricket. Whether the board is going to take any action against him regarding this or not. Because it is certain that he will be fit just before the first match of IPL and after scoring runs there, he will also be selected in the team.
Chetan got furious on this question and said, see it is not your job to select the team. Hardik will be selected in the team, who are you to tell. Me and there are four more people with me who are part of the selection committee. It is their job to decide who will be selected in the team and who will not be selected. Let us do our work and you do yours.
