After backlash on the inclusion of Ranji drop outs, JKCA on Friday dropped Fazil Rashid from J&K U-23 team while its has kept Shubham Pundir and Paras Sharma with the squad for another match.


The wicket-keeper batsman had a forgettable season and has finally faced the axe. The trio has been playing non stop cricket from the start of the season and have not been able to perform upto the expectation levels.

JKCA sources said that Fazil also has got fitness problem and it is one of the reason to drop him. Now the question shifts to inclusion of Pundir and Paras in the team.
