New Delhi: The Cricket Board (BCCI) on Monday refused to read too much into Yuvraj Singh's omission from the Test series against Australia and said the national selectors have picked the best-possible squad for the two Test matches starting October 1 in Mohali.
BCCI Finance and Media Committee chairman Rajiv Shukla said Yuvraj has been dropped from the series purely because of his poor form and fitness and not for any other reason.
"I think it should be left to the selectors to decide which batsman they want to pick for the Test series against Australia keeping in mind the venues. They (selectors) have done a good job. This is the best possible team they have selected," he told reporters here.
"As far as Yuvraj is concerned, the selectors have made him captain of the Rest of India team. When they will find he is fit enough to join the team, they will call him back. I don't think we should interpret the selectors' decision," Shukla said.
