India’s experienced spin bowler R Ashwin can become a puzzle for the rest of the teams in the T20 World Cup. Ashwin has not played any limited over match for a long time. He is going to play T20 World Cup directly after the year 2017. So far he has taken 52 wickets in 46 T20 matches.
In the T20 World Cup, the Netherlands team will get the support of their 41-year-old experienced player Ryan Ten. He was the second highest run-scorer for his team in the T20 World Cup Qualifier held in the year 2019. He had then expressed his desire that he wanted to play the World Cup.
Namibia, playing in the qualifier round, announced their team, in which the most surprising name was former South African cricketer David Weiss who is now playing for Namibia. This bowling all-rounder has played six ODIs and 20 T20s. He has good T20 experience at the domestic level which can help the team.
The most surprising good names in Sri Lanka’s World Cup team were Mahesh Tekshana and Bhanuka Rajapaksa. Mahish is the new mystery spinner of the team. The opportunity has been given after his brilliant ODI debut. At the same time, Rajapaksa has been given a place in the team due to his experience. Both these players can become trouble for the opponents.
Wicket-keeper batsman Mohammad Shahzad has been included in the team that Afghanistan has selected for the T20 World Cup. Shahzad has been out of the team for two years. He was dropped from the team for the 2019 World Cup being played in England. After all the controversies, he has finally got a chance.
Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah, who performed brilliantly in the domestic tournament, have been given a place in the team. Asif Ali and Khushdil Shah have been given a place in the team at the middle order. Asif played his last T20 match against Zimbabwe in April. So far in 29 matches, Asif has scored 344 runs with a strike rate of 123.74. On the other hand, left-handed batsman Khushdil Shah played his last T20 match in the home series against South Africa earlier this year. In 9 T20 matches played so far, he has scored 130 runs with a strike rate of 109.24.
Rubel Hossain has been kept in the list of reserve players in Bangladesh’s team. Rubel is part of the team in the ongoing domestic T20 International series against New Zealand, but still he was not given a place in the team for the T20 World Cup. At the same time, Soumya Sarkar, who is running in bad condition, has been given a chance in the team. He yearned to score runs on the Australian tour.
Taking a big risk, the Australian team has given Josh English a place in the team for the T20 World Cup. Josh has been given preference over Alex Carey, who has become a big name in Australia. Josh has not played any international match till now. The board says that with the arrival of uncapped Josh, the team will be even stronger.
Fast bowler Tymal Mills has returned to the Eoin Morgan-led side. Mills was instrumental in leading the Sussexes to the final of the T20 Blast and winning the title for the Southern Braves in the ‘Hundred’. The team would like the same performance from him in the World Cup as well.
New Zealand has included Todd Astle, who played just four matches in his T20 World Cup squad. He made his debut in the year 2016 but since then he has been able to play only four matches.
Keshav Maharaj of South Africa made his T20 debut on Friday. He also had to captain in his debut match and he also proved himself by taking a wicket on the very first ball. After being selected in the T20 World Cup, it was necessary for Keshav to prove himself. Now he will take part in this tournament for the first time.
After 6 years, Ravi Rampal, who is 36 years old, has returned to the West Indies team, which has won the T20 title twice. Ravi Rampaul, selected for the T20 World Cup, last played T20 International in the year 2015 but the selectors have given him a place in the squad considering his form.
