I disagree.

Litton Das (23) played 15 T20Is, Mithun (27) 13 T20Is. LItton Das ave 18.80. Mithun ave 10.

And Soumya got more opportunities because he unlike LItton and Mithun scored much better runs in his early years in ODI format. He avaraged around 50 strike rating 100+ around early 2016. For this selectors kept him selecting despite poor form for a year. He was dropped but perhaps longer his survival in 2017 when he scored some good knocks including 87 and 60 in NZ against IRE and NZ. Unless he could have been out before 17 CT.

So it is apparent that Litton didnt get countless opportunities and Soumyas extended runs are not as much some wants to believe. Yes MIthun got less chance, but it doesnt mean Litton got countless opportunities or Soumya got undue extended chance.
