Harbhajan Singh questioned the selectors’ decision after Rohit Sharma wasn’t picked for India’s two-match Test series against the Windies.
Suresh Raina reckons India are still straining to find their feet as far as dealing with pollution is concerned. Former Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi is all to take part in the UAE T20X, which starts on December. Afghanistan leg-break bowler Rashid Khan was over the moon after he made progress in the ICC rankings on the backs of his incredible sho in the recently concluded Asia Cup.
Brendon McCullum wished New Zealand top-order batsman Martin Guptill on his 32nd birthday. Tom Curran posted a picture along with younger brother Sam Curran before leaving for Sri Lanka. English limited-overs opening batsman Jason Roy also can’t wait for the Lankan series to get underway.
