New Delhi: The T20 World Cup 2021 has started from October 17 on UAE soil. The Indian team played the first warm-up match against England on Monday, in which Team India won by 7 wickets. India is considered to be a strong contender to win the T20 World Cup this year. In the first warm-up match played against England on Monday, the big players got exposed. For the T20 World Cup, young spinner Rahul Chahar was given place in Team India in place of T20 specialist bowler like Yuzvendra Chahal, but this bowler proved to be laggy.
The player who left Chahal himself is a flop
Rahul Chahar conceded 43 runs in 4 overs in the first warm-up match against England. Rahul Chahar got only 1 wicket during this period. The selectors have made a big mistake by giving Rahul Chahar a chance in a tournament like the World Cup. Rahul Chahar’s bowling has been very simple and he has also looted runs. During the IPL, Mumbai Indians, who made Rahul Chahar’s career, also dropped him from their playing 11.
Surprisingly, Rahul Chahar got preference over a legendary bowler like Yuzvendra Chahal. Another big problem is that Rahul has played only 5 international matches so far and this is very little experience for a stage like the World Cup. Chahal has given a befitting reply to the selectors by performing brilliantly in the second phase of IPL. Not only this, Chahal is the highest wicket-taker for India in T20 cricket.
Selectors had broken Chahal’s heart
Yuzvendra Chahal is considered one of the closest players of Team India captain Virat Kohli. In RCB too, both play together, so there is a good bonding between them, but despite this, the selectors showed Yuzvendra Chahal the way out of the T20 World Cup team. Looking at the performance of Rahul Chahar, it did not seem that the opposition batsmen were having trouble playing him. If Rahul Chahar has a similar performance in the T20 World Cup, then he can sink Team India’s loot.
This argument was given on choosing Rahul Chahar in T20 World Cup
During the announcement of the Indian team for the T20 World Cup, Chief Selector Chetan Sharma had said, ‘We wanted a leg-spinner in the team, who could throw the ball at high speed. Who can get good grip from the pitch with fast pace. In such a situation, we chose Rahul Chahar instead of Chahal. But the spinner whom the selectors chose in place of Yuzvendra Chahal in the T20 World Cup did not show any merit and the performance of Rahul Chahar was exposed.
Indian team for T20 world cup
Virat Kohli (Captain), Rohit Sharma (Vice Captain), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (WK), Ishan Kishan (WK), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Varun Chakraborty, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami.
