New Delhi: The Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2021 has been announced. Many young players have been given place in the 15-member team captained by Virat Kohli. But there were some players who should have got a place in the team, but still the selectors cut their cards. There is also a name of veteran opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan in this.
This young batsman cut Dhawan’s leaf
For the T20 World Cup 2021, the selectors thought it more appropriate to place 23-year-old young batsman Ishan Kishan in place of Shikhar Dhawan. Since his debut, Kishan, who has played at number 3 or number 4 till now, has been included in the team as a reserve opener by the selectors. Surprisingly, Kishan has played only 3 international T20 matches and his debut also happened this year. Let us inform that Ishan Kishan had scored a half-century as soon as he came on his T20 and ODI debut. Not only this, he also became the highest run-scorer for Mumbai Indians in the IPL played in UAE last year. In such a situation, the selectors thought it right to give him a place.
Dhawan has been opening with Rohit for a long time
Veteran opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan has been playing the responsibility of opening with Rohit Sharma in the Indian team for a long time but he has not been given a place in the World Cup team. Surprisingly, the selectors did not think it right to give Shikhar Dhawan a place in the reserve players as well. All the fans of Gabbar are angry with this.
Dhawan was in excellent form
Let us tell you that Shikhar Dhawan was running in dangerous form. In the recently concluded limited overs series against Sri Lanka, Dhawan was sent as the captain of the team. At the same time, Dhawan’s performance was excellent. Not only this, Dhawan was also the highest run-scorer in the first half of the IPL. Dhawan had scored 380 runs at an average of 54 while playing for Delhi Capitals and he also had the Orange Cap. But even after this, not getting a place in the team is a matter of great injustice.
Team India for World Cup:
Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Varun Chakraborty, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel.
