The Indian cricket team will travel to the West Indies to play a series of five T20 matches, two Test matches, and three ODI matches. The Indian Cricket Board has already made the team announcement for this. The Indian selectors, however, came under harsh fire from cricket experts and fans shortly after the selection was named since so many quality players were overlooked.
Numerous players, in addition to Sarfaraz Khan, Umesh Yadav, and Cheteshwar Pujara, did not make the series roaster. The team had players like Ruturaj Gaikwad and Yashasvi Jaiswal, but the selectors overlooked Abhimanyu Easwaran, who has regularly excelled in domestic cricket. Easwaran discussed the subject and acknowledged that he was a little disappointed.
“I mean it is a little disappointing, to be honest, but again, it is about getting my focus back to where I wanted to be and my game. I want to spend my energy on working my skill whenever that opportunity comes. I know that the opportunity would come soon and I want to be best prepared for that. So my focus is on trying to improve as a cricketer and be ready when the opportunity comes.” Easwaran was quoted as saying by India Today.

Easwaran also shared that his family was also disappointed as they wanted him to be get selected for the Test series. However, he also added that this won’t break his spirit and he will focus on the upcoming Duleep Trophy.
“They were also disappointed. They expect more than me. As a cricketer, I know how to be in the present but they always look forward to whenever a team is announced. So, it was a little disappointing for them, but again they know that for me right now, the Duleep Trophy is important, ” said the 27 year old.
“There is disappointment but we cannot do much about it, that is how life is. I am trying to get my focus back on Duleep Trophy and that I think is the most important thing for me right now. This snub has not broken my spirit at all, I am not going to give up, that’s for sure,” concluded Easwaran.
