VRV Singh's selection draws flak

Rajkot: Other than Kerala's S Sreesanth, if there was one fast bowler who impressed the Indian selectors during September's Challenger Trophy in Mohali, it was Vikram Rajveer Singh. Playing for India 'A' on his homeground, the 20-year-old managed to take only two wickets from two matches but drew praise for his sheer pace. He would have got an India cap at Rajkot on Wednesday but was declared unfit at the last moment. VRV sustained a foot injury during a Duleep Trophy match recently. However, the selectors still named him in the squad, a move which is now inviting a lot of criticism, especially at a time when senior players like former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly and Mohammad Kaif are being told to prove their fitness as well as form if they hope to make a comeback to the national squad. JP Yadav of the Railways now returns to the Indian team for the remaining matches. He will, however, be reaching Rajkot only on Wednesday morning, just hours before the start of the sixth one-dayer. This is turning out to be a selection mess, which could surely have been avoided at a time when Indian cricket is touching new highs.
