New Delhi: The BCCI selection committee, led by Ajit Agarkar, announced the Indian squad for the upcoming ODI series against Australia.

BCCI has announced two different squads for the first two ODIs and the final ODI.

While the veteran Indian spinner, R Ashwin, has made his comeback to the team, due to Axar Patel’s injury, the addition of two off-spinners in the form of Washington Sundar and Ashwin is again leaving fans flabbergasted.

Players like Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav and the skipper Rohit Sharma have been rested for the first two ODI’s. Former Indian Vice Captain KL Rahul has been named the captain for the first two ODIs.

However, BCCI’s decision to rest the Indian batting icon, Virat Kohli, did not sit well with the fans, who are slamming the BCCI selection committee and pointing fingers towards the apex body for cricket in India, for trying to protect Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 100 international centuries.

The fans took on social media platform X (Formerly known as Twitter), to display their disappointment. Check out their reactions below:
