New Delhi: The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will be played from October 17 to November 14 in the UAE and Oman. For this tournament, the place of some players is said to be confirmed, but there are many players whose cards can be cut.
Team India may be announced soon
The BCCI has not yet announced Team India for the T20 World Cup, but it is expected that it will be decided soon. Let’s have a look at 15 players who can get a chance to play for India in this ICC tournament.
There is no doubt in the name of Rohit Sharma for the opening of Team India, but the question arises as to who will be his partner. KL Rahul is its biggest contender, because he has a good record in T20. On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan’s card can be cut, because he could not live up to the expectations in the T20 series on the Sri Lanka tour.
third and fourth numbers
Virat Kohli can land on this position, but there is a tough competition between Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer at number four, Surya’s latest performance makes him a big contender for number four. On the other hand, Iyer has been away from competitive cricket for several months due to injury, so his return is difficult.
Rishabh Pant is the main wicketkeeper of Team India, but Ishan Kishan can also be taken to the UAE for the T20 World Cup as a backup. He is an expert in batting just like Pant and recently he has performed brilliantly.
Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja will have the dual responsibility of batting and bowling. Both can prove to be trump cards for Team India in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
Senior fast bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar will have an important responsibility for the pace attack. Bhuvi is an expert in bowling economical and Bumrah is an expert in the death overs. At the same time, Deepak Chahar can play with them.
Apart from Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal will have the responsibility of spin bowling. Although Rahul Chahar and Washington Sundar can be included in the team as reserve players, if this happens then the card of Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav can be cut.
15 Indian players probable for T20 World Cup- Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (capt), Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal.
