By Sagay Raj: Kannada actor Chetan Kumar Ahimsa said there should be reservations in the selection of the Indian cricket team. “We know our team players are from the upper caste,” he added, and said if people from the Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribe (ST) communities get selected in the Indian team through reservations, it could be a better team.

He took the example of the South African cricket team and said that since 2016, there have been reservations for the team. “At least six of the team members should be black men,” he added.

Chetain said that currently, reservations are mostly restricted to education, jobs and politics, but it needs to be implemented in cricket too.

“In our country, we know how much money, recognition and media coverage the cricket team gets. If performance should get better in the Indian cricket team, there should be reservations in the team selections too,” said the actor.
