Twitter Fumes As Rahul Tripathi, Sanju Samson Left Out Of T20I Squad vs South Africa


New Delhi: The All-India Senior Selection Committee on Sunday named squads for the upcoming T20I series against South Africa and one-off Test against England.

Rahul Tripathi, who has been in splendid form for SunRisers Hyderabad in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) season has not been given a chance in the 18-member T20I squad. The right-handed Tripathi has struck the ball superbly for SRH and he has scored 393 runs in 13 matches so far at a strike rate of 161.73, including three half-centuries. Fans were expecting the batter to be named in T20I squad but this was not to be the case.

As soon as the squad was announced on Sunday, fans immediately took to Twitter to express their displeasure over Tripathi not being given a chance in the squad.

The senior pros — Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah have all been rested for the T20Is. KL Rahul will be leading the side while pace sensation Umran Malik has earned a maiden call-up. The five-match T20I series will begin on June 9 in Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
