“These players have performed admirably since November 2021, which is why we have won nine of our past thirteen T20Is.” We have invested in these cricketers, and it is only right that they get the opportunity to demonstrate their worth in the World Cup, for which they have been preparing and practising diligently.
“We are supposed to assure continuity and support for these players, and we did just that.”
