The selectors have rectified an error they had made in selecting the injured Saurabh Tiwary for the upcoming Challenger Trophy. Tiwary had undergone a shoulder operation about three weeks ago, and is not expected to take field for the next month or so. His Jharkhand team-mate, Ishank Jaggi, replaced him in the India Red squad.

Interestingly, Jaggi had been involved in a somewhat similar fiasco in the past. Two years ago, after having been named to represent Rest of India in the Irani Cup, Jaggi was withdrawn on fitness ground. The Jharkhand Cricket Association took exception to that BCCI explanation, and reported that Jaggi had been fit and been part of the Jharkhand Ranji preparatory camp. K Srikkanth led the selection panel back then.

This time, though, the selectors, led by Sandeep Patil, could be given some leeway. This year's Challenger Trophy will be played during an extremely busy period for Indian fringe players. Four sets of Indian cricketers were ruled out of selection because of the clashing Champions League T20. Another A team was selected to represent India A against West Indies A, which, too, clashes with the Challenger Trophy. In all, the selectors picked five teams on September 10: India A for one-dayers, India A for the first four-day game, India A for the following two four-day games and two Challenger sides.
