New Delhi: IPL 2021 is in its final phase and the T20 World Cup will start soon after. The 15-member Indian team for the T20 World Cup has been announced only last month. The selectors gave place to some such players in the team, which surprised everyone and did not include some such players in the team which surprised everyone. India’s best leg spin bowler Yuzvendra Chahal has not got a place in the team.
The former cricketer said, ‘Will have to wait’
Ever since the team was selected regarding Yuzvendra Chahal not being selected in the World Cup squad, the discussions have been going on and are not over yet. Now former Indian player Saba Karim has commented on this saying that it is not so easy for Chahal to be selected in the Indian team. Even though he is doing well in the IPL, he may have to wait a long time now. Now only he can join the team when a player is injured.
Rahul Chahar gets Chahal’s place
Mumbai Indians leg-spinner Rahul Chahar has been included in the Indian T20 World Cup squad. Rahul Chahar has been kept as a leg spin bowler in place of Yuzvendra Chahal. Rahul Chahar had bowled well in the first phase of IPL, seeing that the selectors gave him a place in the team. Not only this, Rahul Chahar’s performance in Sri Lanka was also better than Chahal. Saba Karim said that Chahal is bowling well in the second phase of IPL but he will have to wait now.
Chahal’s deadly bowling in the second phase
Yuzvendra Chahal’s bowling was not good in the first phase of IPL, but in the UAE phase, Chahal has attracted the selectors to his side with his bowling. Chahal has taken 10 wickets in 5 matches played so far in the second phase. Since then, questions have been raised on not selecting Chahal in the World Cup team.
Chahal is playing like Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL. RCB have done well this time and have confirmed their place in the playoffs.

This is the last IPL as captaincy of Virat Kohli, he announced his retirement from captaincy after this IPL.
