New Delhi: Team India has been announced for T20 World Cup 2021. Taking a big decision, the selectors have included India’s star off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin in the team of T20 World Cup. Let us tell you that Ashwin was out of India’s limited overs team for a long time and now after 4 years, once again he will be seen playing in Team India’s blue jersey. But people’s reactions have started regarding Ashwin’s selection.
Sunil Gavaskar said this
Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar has given a big statement on Ashwin’s selection in the T20 World Cup squad. Gavaskar said that Ashwin has not got a chance to play in a single match in the Test series against England and that is why he has been included in the World Cup squad as a consolation.
While talking to Sports Tak, he said, ‘Ashwin’s return is very good but he is not getting a chance in the playing XI. He may have been selected in the team to remove the disappointment of the England tour but whether he will be a part of the playing 11 is the big question. Gavaskar believes that Ashwin will not be given a chance in the team’s playing 11 in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
That’s why Ashwin’s selection happened
Chief selector Chetan Sharma said, ‘Ashwin is an important player for us. They have done well in IPL and we need experienced players. Ashwin is the only off-spinner in the team. Varun is a mysterious spinner who can surprise the batsmen. Chetan Sharma also said that all-rounder Hardik Pandya is completely fit and will do all the overs of his quota. “We have preferred Rahul Chahar over Chahal because we wanted a spinner who can bowl fast and get it off the pitch,” he said. Akshar has been selected as the backup all-rounder of Ravindra Jadeja.
