Lisa Sthalekar, a former Australian women’s cricketer, has expressed her displeasure with the BCCI’s seeming cold shoulder toward Veda Krishnamurthy. Though Veda’s exclusion from the Indian women’s squad announced on Friday “can be justified,” Sthalekar is disappointed that the BCCI has not interacted with Veda to see how she is doing.
Veda Krishnamurthy, 28, just lost her mother and older sister to COVID-19.

Krishnamurthy has represented India in 48 One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and 76 Twenty-Twenty Internationals (T20Is). Her most recent competitive outing occurred in March when she represented Karnataka in the inter-state Women’s Senior One Day Trophy quarter-finals.
The Indian selectors picked the India Women teams for the one-off Test match, one-day international (ODI), and twenty-over international (T20I) series against England in England on Friday. Krishnamurthy was not mentioned by either team.
