The new team management and the selectors have decided to hit the transition button. According to TOI, the team is planning to move on from Ishant Sharma, Wridddhiman Saha, Ajinkya Rahane, and Cheteshwar Pujara.
While Saha has opted out of the upcoming Ranji Trophy season, the Delhi and District Cricket Association has not recieved any information from Ishant on his availability. DDCA waited until Wednesday afternoon to hear from the veteran pacer before sitting down to finalize the squad, scheduled to leave for Guwahati on Thursday morning.
Ishant and Saha have been informed that they are not required, while Rahane and Pujara have been put on notice. The two batters will have to score heavily in Ranji Trophy to stand any chance of making a comeback to the Test team.
