Proud to play for India: Shubhman Gill

Shubman Gill, who is selected to play for Team India,  said it's an honour to represent the country, donning the blue or white.

Be it blue or white. It's always an honour to represent my country, Gill tweeted.Out-of-form opener Lokesh Rahul was excluded while Gill was rewarded for his consistent shows with the bat. BCCI Chief Selector MSK Prasad had earlier acknowledged that Rahul's form in Tests was a cause of concern for the team and that the board might have limited-over opener Rohit Sharma to open the innings in the five-day format as well.
