We have spoken to them before and told them that they won’t be part of two tests against Sri Lanka. Doors are totally open to them. It’s just for these two tests, They have served the country for a long, so they can always come back, why not? It’s like a graph. Rahane hit a hundred yesterday. this is a process of managing. Who wouldn’t be happy if they come back.”

He has also added – “As of now, we have told them they won’t be considered for two tests. In between, we shall see how the replacements go. We are nobody to close doors on anyone. This is cricket. Performance matters. Now they will be playing Ranji trophy selectors will be watching. We spoke to them long before itself,”

Chetan Sharma has also spoken the reasons behind Rohit Sharma’s selection as captain and said – He is the No 1 player of our team and plays all the formats. Time and again we will be speaking to him.”

Speaking about Saha, Chetan said – “I can’t tell you on what grounds he has been dropped. That’s for selectors. All I can tell you is that he was told before and asked to play the Ranji trophy, which is the ladder for the Indian team. What we discussed between ourselves we can’t tell you. ”

He has concluded by stating – “Why he did not play Ranji, the state association CAB cab tell you that. That is not my jurisdiction. As selectors, we wanted them to play. We are not looking at age. When there are youngsters sitting outside, we thought we shall give chance. For these two test matches. But it’s important to play Ranji. Else, how will we know if you are match-ready?”
