The forgotten Indian quartet of Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan may get selected for the squad that will tour Bangladesh this June for a Test and three One-Day Internationals, if latest reports are to be believed. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is currently mulling over the thought of giving the players a fitting send-off from international cricket.

According to a report by Mail Today, a senior BCCI official added that talks have been going on in the board regarding giving the players the opportunity to call it a day after the tour, though he maintained that it is still to early to confirm whether the quartet would be selected for Bangladesh or not.

“What they have done for Team India in the past decade will be hard to match. But as is the case with every sport, time does catch up with you.

“So we are thinking about giving them an opportunity to go to Bangladesh and sign off on a high. Some people may term it an emotional decision, but so what? But yes, the idea needs the approval of national selectors,” the official was quoted as saying.

The squad for Bangladesh is to be selected on May 20, with India Test skipper Virat Kohli having already requested the BCCI to allow him to skip the tour. READ: Virat Kohli may skip Bangladesh tour
