Team India are currently busy playing the three-match T20I series in New Zealand. However, the Men in Blue had a disappointing end to the recently concluded 20-20 World Cup 2022. In the semi-final, India lost to England as Jos Buttler and his men thrashed them by 10 wickets. Hence, fans were not happy with the performance of team India.

Now, all big-name players like Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have taken a rest from the whole New Zealand tour. Even, head coach Rahul Dravid has taken a rest from this tour. So, Hardik Pandya has got the opportunity to lead the team under VVS Laxman. On 18 November 2022, India and the Kiwis were ready to begin the series. But, heavy rain abandoned the first game.

But, on the same day, fans went crazy after the Indian Cricket Board sacked Chetan Sharma and the entire Senior National Selection Committee. It has been found that the Board were not happy with the performance of the selectors. Team India had not performed well in recent tournaments like the Asia Cup, and the 20-20 World Cup. Board members also blamed the selectors for taking wrong decisions regarding players’ workload management. During Chetan Sharma’s tenure, eight different captains managed the team in just one year.

During Chetan Sharma’s tenure, they also removed Virat Kohli from the captaincy from both the ODIs and Tests. So, after this sacking, fans went crazy as they termed it as ‘Karma’. They came up with their views that it was destined whatever has happened with Chetan Sharma and the entire Senior National Selection Committee.
