Fifteen Man Squad for One-off T20

by Devanshu Mehta

Fifteen.

Four of them will sit out the match.

And since the team is almost identical to the Asia Cup team, each of those four will have only recently returned from Bangladesh. And will have perhaps three days plus jet lag to get in the groove for the IPL.

It was ridiculous to take eleven players to South Africa for this match. It’s a tragedy to take fifteen.

Fair warning, BCCI: you can screw with other boards, with your sponsors, with franchises or with money all you want and I’ll shrug my shoulders.

You screw with the players or you screw with the fans, and it’s war.
