New Delhi: The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 will start from October 17 in the UAE and Oman. The BCCI has also announced the Indian team for this big tournament. In this team of 15 players, there are names of such young players which no one expected. But there were some players who are very special to captain Virat Kohli but still failed to make it to this team. In this report, we are going to tell you about three Indian players who could not make it to the World Cup team despite their good performance.
1. Yuzvendra Chahal
Team India’s star leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected by the selectors in the T20 World Cup team. This was the most shocking decision ever. Surprisingly, Chahal is the highest wicket-taker for India in T20 cricket but still he has been shown the way out. He has been replaced by young spinner Rahul Chahar, who has made his debut in international cricket in a very short time. Rahul has played only 5 T20 matches so far. Chahal has a very good relationship with Virat Kohli and he plays for his team RCB in the IPL but still he failed to make it to the team.
2. Mohammad Siraj
Star fast bowler Mohammad Siraj is also one of the special players of captain Virat Kohli. Siraj has been given a place in the team continuously in the Test team but he was shown the way out of the T20 World Cup team. Siraj has also been playing for RCB for a long time. However, the selectors did not have faith in Siraj. Siraj would definitely like to make a place in the team in the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia next year.
3. Shreyas Iyer
Shreyas Iyer, who is considered to be a great batsman of the middle order, also has a very good relationship with Virat. Iyer has been included as the standby players of the T20 World Cup 2021. Due to a shoulder injury, he was walking away from cricket for some time. But now he is completely fine, although he was not given a place in the 15-member team.
