The Indian Cricket fans have criticized the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and national Selectors for their unfair policy in team selection and sought explanation after Mayank Agarwal and Mohammed Siraj have been once again overlooked for the Hyderabad Test.
On Thursday (October 11), the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) has named an unchanged squad for the second and final Test against the West Indies to be played from October 12 in Hyderabad.
First, they overlooked Karun Nair for the home Test series and then Agarwal and Siraj for the first Test, but still, people believed that the duo would be picked in the final Test.
Many believed that the BCCI would, at least, give the nod to Mayank in the second Test ahead of the Australia series.
The BCCI and selectors have been continuously receiving rage from fans and criticism from Indian cricketing greats ever since Karun’s omission and now their indigestible move added fuel to it.
BCCI’s latest move has once again come under the radar as social media was flooded with reactions criticizing BCCI for overlooking Agarwal and Siraj, fans demanding the explanation from the board regarding the same.
Have a look here how Twitterati reacted at BCCI for individualism -

Is the Indian team management & @imVkohli out to deny opportunity to players from Karnataka?— Bored Wallaby (@BoredWallaby) October 11, 2018
First it's @karun126 and now it's Mayank Agarwal. @klrahul11 is getting chances as he is Virat's lap dog (and he also deserves it).
And how Kumble was treated!#INDvWI #INDvsWI
