Young opening batter Prithvi Shaw did not find a place in the Indian squad for the upcoming two-match T20I series against Ireland. The BCCI on Wednesday named a 17-man squad for the two T20Is, which be played on June 26 and June 28 in Malahide. Hardik Pandya, who led Gujarat Titans to the IPL 2022 title last month, will captain India for the first time, while Bhuvneshwar Kumar was named vice-captain. While Rahul Tripathi also earned his maiden India call-up, there was no place for Shaw in the squad. Fans took to Twitter and sympathised with the young batter, who last played for India during the white-ball tour of Sri Lanka in July 2021.
Here’s how Twitter reacted:
“Still no Prithvi Shaw even for the Ireland tour, a hard call,” a fan tweeted.
