Off The Field

No One Communicated With Murali Vijay And Karun Nair After They Were Dropped

The current selection panel and players seem to be unimpressed with each other’s work style. After being dropped from the Test team, Murali Vijay and Karun revealed that they never had a communication with any selector. On the other hand, MSK Prasad, chief of the selection panel, revealed that his colleague Devang Gandhi had spoken to both the players.

Now, a report in The Times of India suggests that there has been no communication between selectors and players, which means that Vijay and Nair are correct in saying that they haven’t heard anything regarding their axing from the Test team.

Vijay was a part of the Test team for the England tour but after a poor run in the first two games –  including a pair of ducks in the second Test – was dropped from the playing XI for the third game before being sent home for the last two Tests.

Nair, meanwhile, sat on the bench for the five matches in England and got dropped from the team for the series against West Indies.
