ICC Champions Trophy: Parthiv Patel doesn't care about selection anymore
ICC Champions Trophy Parthiv Patel doesn't care about selection anymore. Wicket-keeper batsman Parthiv Patel may not have been selected for the upcoming Champions Trophy scheduled in England from June 1 even as a last-minute replacement but he says he does not play the game now with the sole intention of getting picked by the selectors. He said, "Honestly, I don't worry about selection anymore. I have been old enough and been around for years. I don't play cricket to get selected". With Manish Pandey, originally picked in the Champions Trophy squad, picking up an injury and needed to be replaced, the selectors opted for another seasoned 'keeper-batsman Dinesh Karthik of Tamil Nadu, who is also on a comeback trail over Parthiv Patel.
