While Ajinkya Rahane has given the responsibility to lead the Test side, he can not find a place in ODI and T20I squads.

The ODI team for the England series saw Shreyas Iyer, Ambati Rayudu, and Siddharth Kaul coming in but Rahane’s omission has left everyone surprising, including former India captain Sourav Ganguly.

Ajinkya Rahane is missed out on the limited-overs squad. A harsh decision, Ganguly was quoting as saying by India Today.

I will still pick up Ajinkya Rahane ahead of Ambati Rayudu. Ajinkya Rahane is a far superior player in England where the ball is going to move.

He has got a good record in England, Ganguly is adding.

Rayudu is having a stellar Indian Premier League season. The right-hander is scoring 423 runs in 10 matches at a healthy average of 42.30 and strike rate of 151.61.

Rahane, who has scored 2962 runs in 90 ODI matches at an average of 35.26, has not had a good run in ODIs of late.

He has a mediocre ODI series in South Africa where he is scoring 140 runs in the six matches with the highest points is 79 not out.

But look at his statistics in the last one year, one will say that Ganguly is right in his analysis.

29-year-old is to accumulate 725 runs in the last one-year in 17 ODI matches with an average of 48.33 that includes a century too against the West Indies, where he is presenting with the Man of the Match award.

In the last one-year, Rahane scoring 244 runs in five matches against Australia, 140 in six games versus South Africa, five in a single with Sri Lanka and 336 runs in five games playing with west indies.

Rahane has also in and out of the Indian team which has taken a big hit to his confidence.

The Indian captain Virat Kohli has plays 29 matches in the last one-year, Rahane has only featured in 17 games.

India team for T20I series vs Ireland Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Suresh Raina, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Siddharth Kaul, Umesh Yadav.
