“A Request To Selectors”- Aakash Chopra Sends A Message To BCCI Selection Committee Ahead Of South Africa Series

The Indian cricket team has a hectic international schedule in 2022. After the conclusion of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League, the Men in Blue will battle South Africa in a 5-match T20I series.

After that, they will visit England, Ireland, West Indies and America, followed by the 2022 Asia Cup, a home series against the Australian cricket team and ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

It is natural that all the players will be drained if they play in all the series, which is why the BCCI selection committee has reportedly decided to rest the senior players for the upcoming South Africa series. They want to keep the main players fresh for the upcoming tour of England, where the Indian cricket team will be in action in all three formats against the home team.


However, the equation might change slightly because Cricket South Africa (CSA) have named a strong squad for the upcoming series against India. Looking at the strength of the squad that the Proteas have named, former Indian cricket team opener Aakash Chopra sent a message to the Indian selection committee.

Aakash Chopra’s message to Indian selectors ahead of series against South Africa

Speaking on his YouTube channel today, Aakash Chopra opined that if South Africa are playing with a full-strength squad, the Indian selectors should also think of using some of their main players. Chopra felt if the Indian team used their ‘B’ players, then the South African squad will emerge victorious.

“South Africa have tied India’s hands now and will win the series if an ordinary team is put out. India have to play pretty much everyone. So, a request to the selectors, if the South African players don’t need rest, then don’t rest your main players either. If you take this lightly, then you will lose series at home,” said Chopra.¬†
