It was good to see Anirudha Srikkanth being replaced by Stephen Fleming since the presence of Anirudha Srikkanth was giving fodder to the claims of nepotism in the squad. Critics cited the selection of Anirudha, an Under -19 player ahead of U-19 World cup players - Einstein and Mukund as nepotism. [Anirudha was not selected for U-19 World Cup Squad]

Anirudha was not in the U-10 because he was over 19. Period
