Raman defended the selection committee

Raman said that if I am asked, I would say that the selection committee is not really trying to find faults in Sarfaraz. It has happened many times that a player’s performance with bat or ball alone cannot be the criteria for his selection in the national team. Raman says, ‘In such a situation one can also turn to me and ask what they are trying to say and do they think that they are God? No, he (the selector) is not God.

Sarfaraz will have to do this work

The 58-year-old revealed that it is ideal to discuss cricketer’s behavior on and off the field in the selection committee. “What usually happens is that in the selection committee meeting, they not only look at the statistics that a cricketer has put up, but they also discuss about the various things that they have noticed about a cricketer’s technique or technique. Must have been found in his attitude. This committee has done exactly that. He feels that when it comes to facing international fast bowlers, Sarfaraz Khan might not be capable of it. It is common practice to take such decisions in the selection committee meetings. This has been done before as well.
