A series of five T20I matches will be played between Team India and Australia from 23 November. For which the selection committee of BCCI has announced the team. After the defeat in the World Cup 2023 final, more senior players have been rested. In fact, along with Kohli and Rohit, the trio of Gill, KL Rahul and Bumrah-Siraj-Shami have been rested.
Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav have also been rested for the upcoming T20 series, so everyone expected that senior spinner Yuzvendra Chahal would return but it has not happened. Apart from this, in the absence of KL Rahul, Sanju Samson has also not been selected in the team. In such a situation, the question arises that why were those two players not selected in the team?
Why was Sanju Samson not given a place in Team India?
The selection committee headed by Ajit Agarkar has ignored Sanju Samson and given a chance to Jitesh Sharma. Actually many people are saying that the selection committee is looking for a young wicketkeeper in place of Sanju. But the interesting thing is that Jitesh is one year older than Sanju.
Jitesh has performed well in the last two IPLs. Due to which he has got the ticket of Team India but Sanju has scored more runs than Jitesh in the last two IPLs but still he has not been selected in the team.

What is the reason for ignoring Yuzvendra Chahal?
During the team selection for World Cup 2023, it was said that Yuzvendra Chahal is unable to bat. Due to which he was not selected in the team but why has he not been selected for the Australia series. No valid reason has been given for this.
Let us tell you that Chahal is the highest wicket taker for India in T20I cricket including IPL. Despite this, the selection committee is not trusting him.
