New Delhi: BCCI has announced the Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2021. In this team captained by Virat Kohli, 15 best players of India have been given a place. While three players have been kept in reserve. But in this team of 15 players, the place of some veteran cricketers was also made, but the selectors thought it right to show them the way out.
this player is out
Star batsman Shreyas Iyer was also left out of India’s T20 World Cup squad. Iyer is one of the three players kept in reserve for the World Cup, but he was not given a place in the main team. Let us tell you that till the beginning of this year, he was the permanent number 4 batsman of the team, but during the series against England, he suffered such an injury that he was out of the team for a long time. After this Suryakumar Yadav took the place of Iyer and he has now confirmed him too.
Iyer was the contender for captaincy
Shreyas Iyer, who has consistently led his team to success in the IPL, was once a big contender to become the captain of the Indian team. In fact, after the retirement of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, India had only KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer as the big contenders for the captaincy. But Iyer is finding it difficult to make his place in the team now. At the same time, the captaincy of Delhi Capitals team in IPL was given to young wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant in his place. Let us tell you that last year, under the captaincy of Iyer, the Delhi team had traveled till the IPL final.
was out after injury
Iyer was playing continuously before Suryakumar’s arrival in the team. But in the home series against England, Iyer suffered an injury that took him a long time to recover. Looking at the current situation, it seems that even captain Virat Kohli himself trusts Suryakumar Yadav more than Iyer. A big reason behind this is that Suryakumar has done well for the Indian team and Mumbai Indians in the IPL.
