# Which of the Following Statements, If True, Contradicts Dravid’S Selection Strategy? - Logical Reasoning

MCQ

Rahul Dravid, the head coach of India’s Under-19 cricket team, explained that the 2018 Under-19 World Cup team selection strategy was about providing opportunities to a lot more players to come into the India Under-19 fold. He explained that more than winning — which is not the right touchstone of success of a program at this level — what matters is how many of the players are able to move to the next level, which is playing first-class cricket. He, therefore, made a conscious decision to not select players from the previous World Cup to the 2018 Under-19 World Cup squad.

Which of the following statements, if true, contradicts Dravid’s selection strategy?

#### Options

• First-class cricket selectors evaluate under-19 cricketers based on the win-loss ratio of the team they were a part of.

• First-class cricket selectors evaluate under-19 cricketers based on their ability to cope with injuries.

• First-class cricket selectors evaluate under-19 cricketers based on their individual performances.

• Players who have played in international tournaments face domestic competition better than those who have not.

#### Solution

First-class cricket selectors evaluate under-19 cricketers based on the win-loss ratio of the team they were a part of.

Explanation:

The correct answer is  - first-class cricket selectors evaluate under-19 cricketers based on the win-loss ratio of the team they were a part of. Since Dravid’s team selection prioritises giving more players opportunities, rather than winning, the selection strategy described in 'First-class cricket selectors evaluate under-19 cricketers based on the win-loss ratio of the team they were a part of. ' would contradict Dravid’s strategy, and therefore, this would be the correct answer.
'First-class cricket selectors evaluate under-19 cricketers based on their ability to cope with injuries' and 'First-class cricket selectors evaluate under-19 cricketers based on their individual performances' neither support nor contradict Dravid’s strategy, and so, cannot be the correct answer.
'Players who have played in international tournaments face domestic competition better than those who have not' may support Dravid’s strategy - since his strategy would result in more players having played in international tournaments - and so, 'Players who have played in international tournaments face domestic competition better than those who have not. ' cannot be the correct answer either.
