No bias against Ambati Rayudu: MSK Prasad

"We did give a few more chances to Rayudu but Vijay Shankar gives three dimensions".

Dinesh Karthik was dropped for the West Indies tour because the selectors preferred to look ahead. After the side's semi-final loss to New Zealand, Gavaskar said a batsman like Rayudu should have been in the squad, since he was among the standbys, and could have handled the crisis of being 24 for 4 in a semi-final better. But he was never picked up in that World Cup squad. "When Rayudu was picked, on the basis 17-18 T20 performances we picked him in the ODI side, so there was a lot of criticism but we had some thoughts about him", Prasad said.

The selectors did pick Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer and Navdeep Saini based on their performances in the ongoing India A team's tour of the West Indies. As for Jadhav, he commented: "Kedar Jadhav hasn't done anything wrong for his non-selection, first of all". Prasad also mentioned that Shankar was the "three-dimensional cricketer". And hence, despite being in the reserves, the Hyderabad batsman was not sent in as a replacement even after a second batsman was injured during the World Cup. We didn't have a left hander at top so the team management had requested for a left-hander and we had no option other than Pant. We know how emotional Rayudu is, we are also emotional.

Agarwal, too, was the team management's choice.

"So there was a medical emergency at that stage whether he will continue or not (in the World Cup)". There was so much of a worry factor. At that juncture, a mail was written, a written communication was given to us that we need a back-up opener. Although he had been marked as India's No. 4 by Virat Kohli a year ago, the selectors didn't pick him to go to England even after Vijay Shankar was injured and the team needed replacements. Some were not in form, others were injured, so that's when we went to Mayank Agarwal.

Prasad tried to clear up the confusion, probably oblivious to the fact that on both occasions, the selection committee just rubber-stamped the team management's choices. Rayudu was still kept as one of India's standby batsmen for the World Cup squad.

Former India middle-order batsman Ambati Rayudu found himself at the receiving end of India's freakish team selection during the recent Cricket World Cup and out of disappointment, he chose to hang up his boots. "Do you think we lost the game because of No. 4?" He can bat if the conditions are overcast, he can bowl, plus he is a fielder. "Coming back to the tweet, frankly speaking, that was a lovely tweet". I enjoyed it. That was sarcasm. Very timely one. I really enjoyed the tweet. We didn't do anything against him.
