Harbhajan Singh ignored for Kolkata Test

Posted by Admin On 11:34 AM

Debutant R Ashwin's match-winning performance in the first Test at Kotla has forced the selectors to fail to notice Harbhajan Singh for the second Test at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Selection Committee Chairman K Srikkanth on Thursday lauded the youngsters, chiefly the spin duo of R Ashwin and Pragyan Ojha, for their good show in the first cricket Test against the West Indies, and said retaining them in an unchanged squad is a reward for their performance.
The selectors named an unchanged squad for the second Test in Kolkata starting November 14, picking Ashwin and Ojha ahead of Harbhajan Singh who has been dropped on account of poor form.
The team has done very well by winning against the West Indies in the first Test. The selectors, coach and the captain are all very happy,Srikkanth said after the selection group meeting here. India fielded a young bowling attack against the West Indies also without strike bowler Zaheer Khan, and Srikkanth said the youngsters have done well in the Test to justify their selection.
I am happy about Ravichandran Ashwin who took three wickets in first innings and six in the second. Pragyan Ojha did well and pacer Umesh Yadav bowled well on a flat pitch typical of what you call Indian conditions,he said.
Ashwin and Umesh Yadav made their debut in the first Test here, which India won by five wickets. In fact, Ashwin became only the third cricketer ever to be named Man of the Match on debut. Srikkanth also praised the team administration for perform the plans well in the Test.
India Squad:

M S Dhoni (capt and wk), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, V V S Laxman, Yuvraj Singh, Ishant Sharma, R Ashwin, Pragyan Ojha, Umesh Yadav, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Sharma, Varun Aaron.
