‘He Does Not Even Get Selected For India A’, Aakash Chopra Raised Questions On The Ignorance Of This Young Speedster

Former Indian batter Aakash Chopra has opined on the selection of young Indian pacer Umran Malik in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Umran is not included in the 16-member Indian squad for the upcoming T20I series against Afghanistan. He was not selected for the recently concluded multi-format tour of South Africa, and he was also absent from the India A side as well as the squads chosen for the intra-squad practice games.

While having a conversation on his official YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra talks about some surprising team selections.

“Till some time back, Umran Malik was everywhere. We took him to the West Indies as well and it seemed like he could be in the World Cup team too but now he is not there in any of the teams. He doesn’t even get selected for India A.”

The ex-Indian opener raised concerns about the sudden absence of the Jammu and Kashmir speedster. He further said, “What happened within three months that a guy first gets selected for the Indian team, gets very minimum chances there, and then goes totally missing? We don’t even know where Umran Malik is. Why isn’t he there? We should know why this is happening.”

Umran had commendable figures of 2/9 in 2.1 overs during his last T20I against New Zealand in February of the previous year.
