Ashish Nehra has been included in the side for the Australia T20Is, and that is the biggest selection news. At 38, Nehra is a surprise inclusion.
Speaking about his selection, he told PTI, "Who isn't happy if he is playing for India? I have never been bothered by criticism. The Indian dressing room knows what I bring to the table. The skipper knows it, the selectors know it. If I am in the team, definitely, I must be contributing something.”
On being trolled on Twitter, he added, "I don't even know what people say about me on Twitter. Now people may have a notion that since I am not visible on social media and now that I am in the team, where was I during the period. Well, I was religiously following my training schedule, working on my fitness, doing my bowling routines.
"Things you actually do to make a comeback.
"Oh yes, people didn't know where I was but skipper Virat Kohli and chairman of selectors MSK Prasad were well aware of what I was doing," Nehra further told PTI.
