“You need to be in the good books of selectors. Rohit calls me and talks to me for 30 minutes. Hardik Pandya, Deepak Hooda, and Umesh Yadav visit me. We (five selectors) run cricket in India. We decide who will play or who will not,” said Chetan Sharma.
Chetan Sharma further claimed that Hardik Pandya is the future of Indian cricket and Rohit Sharma might not feature in the T20I set-up. " Hardik Pandya would take over as captain in the long run and Rohit Sharma would no longer be a part of the T20I setup. I brought in the likes of Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Deepak Hooda, Shubman Gill, and other 15-20 players in the team," he said.
