Indian Express – By: PTI | Published: February 19, 2018 12:14 Manjot Kalra has been kept on stand.
- (Source: Cricket World Cup Twitter)The DDCA senior selection committee finally dropped controversial pick Khsitij Sharma from the 15–member Delhi squad for the knock out stage of Vijay Hazare Trophy.
- However, U-19 World Cup hero Manjot Kalra has been kept on stand by with young left-arm spinner Harsh Tyagi taking Khsitij’s place.
- Khsitij, who had been included in the squad during Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 tournament, has attracted a lot of negative attention as he was included bypassing proven performers.
- The selectors then included him in the one day squad with the logic that he now has an IPL contract.
- Once he flopped in the Hazare Trophy, the selection committee led by Atul Wassan had no option but to exclude him from the final squad.
