Former India opener Wasim Jaffer believes that the cap of the Indian cricket team should not be given “easy and quick” and players should not be picked up based on one good season in the Indian Premier League (IPL). He also said players should be given time to perform consistently for two to three domestic seasons as well.
“Selectors don’t have to choose the one who does well in their first IPL season. Let them also perform consistently in FC for 2-3 seasons. Let them be fully ready. That’s one reason why we confuse ourselves with the selection dilemma. It cannot be given easily and quickly. It must be earned,” Jaffer tweeted.
