Salman Butt, a former Pakistan captain, has dismissed Ravi Shastri’s assertions that the ex-Indian head coach. Skipper Virat Kohli, had no say in the team selection for the just finished T20 World Cup 2021. Butt addressed the issue on his YouTube channel, saying that it was difficult to imagine that selectors would not contact Kohli and Shastri. Who have both served the national team for many years, before announcing the roster for the multi-nation event.
He believes that the duo’s absence from the selection process for such a large tournament was a strategic move. Captains and coaches, according to Butt, cannot effectively implement their plans if they do not have their preferred players in the lineup.
“How is it even possible? Can’t believe that there were no inputs from Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli regarding India’s team selection. Who have been at the helm of the side for close to five years? The coach and captain decide the brand of cricket the team will play. If they do not have players of their choice, then they will not be able to do that,” he said
Many people considered India to be one of the pre-tournament favorites. Virat Kohli and his teammates, on the other hand, did not have the best start to their season. Their humiliating losses to Pakistan and New Zealand in their first two matches were ultimately the cause of their early exit from the group stage. Salman Butt
