“We are moving on”. MSK Prasad, the chief selector, stated thrice through the course of the press conference that the selection committee will “continue to back the youngsters” and persist with them. “Going into domestic cricket, getting his touch back or thoughts about retirement, everything is purely his personal,” Prasad said. “We’ve already designed the roadmap for the future, I’m certain you can see in the way we are picking the teams.
