Rohit Sharma's selection at the World T20 has raised a few eyebrows. Sharma, who has had a quiet IPL-III so far, was chosen ahead of Delhi's Virat Kohli and Karnataka's Manish Pandey. While Pandey has been going great guns after a splendid domestic season, Kohli has made maximum use of his recent opportunities in ODIs. Though Pandey has failed to score a fifty while opening the innings for the RCB, he has impressed one and all with his sound technique and stroke-play. Thanks to his two ODI tons. Kohli, on the other hand, has almost established himself in India's XI in the 50-over format. An insider revealed that Sharma's reputation of being a match-winner in the shortest format of the game had sealed the deal for him.

When asked if he had anything to say to those who were calling his selection unfair, Sharma said, "I want to tell them that I am not at all interested in what they say, what they think. I am not bothered about whom they wanted in the team. I am in the team and I am happy about it. I'll do my best whenever I get an opportunity."
