He recently was selected to play against Bangladesh and he played to the potential and showcased his timing with some delightful strokes. He has improved a lot and considering all the above factors he was an obvious selection for T20 format. But ,this stylish opener from Karnataka has not been chosen for the T20 against West Indies. On the other hand Manish Pandey has been given a chance ahead of R.Uthappa. It’s not like M.Pandey is not suitable but just to say that R.Uthappa has been over looked. Considering the experience he has he would have been a handful for India.
