The committee of selectors for India’s men’s team witnessed a change of guard recently. With the end of tenure for MSK Prasad and Gagan Khoda, Sunil Joshi and Harvinder were named as their replacements to take the job.

The two new men were also the ones who picked the squad for the upcoming ODI series against South Africa.

Ever since the news perpetrated of the appointment of the new selection committee, the fans have had a lot of expectations. Under the former, the Men in Blue sustained plenty of close and heartbreaking losses.

Hence, the fans are hoping that the latest ones and subsequently, the think-tank wouldn’t make severe selection lapses.

On that note, we take a look at five players who might not get a chance under the new selection committee

Over the last few years, India have produced fast bowlers of high quality. Even in the case of injuries to their first-choice pace bowlers, India possesses deadly fast bowlers to replace those.

The likes of Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, and Navdeep Saini have put their hands up in critical situations with the bat and ball.

Amongst those, Khaleel Ahmed was also a promising prospect. Having made his debut in 2018, Ahmed delivered good enough returns to remain in the reckoning.

However, as time passed by, he became a liability. The 22-year-old has 15 and 13 wickets at 31 and 35.31 in ODIs and T20Is respectively.

In the first T20I against Bangladesh back in November, Mushfiqur Rahim took him to the cleaners at the death. Hence, in the scenario all India’s frontline bowlers are fit, he could never find a spot.
