Indian chief selector Sandeep Patil on Wednesday said that the BCCI didn’t discuss the name of Yuvraj Singh for the upcoming tour to Bangladesh.
Speaking to media after the meeting, Patil said that the reason why Harbhajan Singh was picked for the tour was because there were six left-handers in the Bangladesh squad, which made the selectors go for an extra off-spinner along with Ravichandran Ashwin.
Patil also informed that the name of Ravindra Jadeja and a few other spinners also came up in the meeting.
Notably, the Board for Cricket Control in India (BCCI) on Wednesday announced Team India squad for the upcoming Bangladesh tour.
While Virat Kohli will lead the team in Tests, MS Dhoni will be the skipper in the ODIs.
Patil also confirmed that no players had requested for a rest and barring Mohammed Shami, all other players had reported fit for selction.
