Will there be a change in the Indian team for the T20 World Cup?
T20 World Cup 2021 is starting from 17 October in UAE-Oman. The Indian team for the T20 World Cup has been announced, but on Wednesday, the final seal is going to be on Virat and Co. In fact, today is the last date to make changes in the team before the tournament and the Indian team has every opportunity to identify its weak links and convert them into strengths. Although 15 match-winner players have been selected in the Indian team, but out of these, there are two players who are not at their peak yet and in their place, the selectors can give a chance to two such players who are in amazing form at the moment.
Who is the weak link of Team India?
Who is the weak link of Team India? Knowing the answer to this question is not very difficult. Hardik Pandya, who has won many matches for Team India on the basis of his all-round game, seems to be the weak link of the Indian team at this time. Actually Pandya is neither in good form with the bat nor is he able to bowl. Recently, when Rohit Sharma was asked a question on Pandya’s bowling, he also said that he does not know when this player will bowl. Hardik Pandya scored 127 runs in IPL 2021 at an average of just 14.11. He could not score a half-century in the entire tournament.
Venkatesh Iyer is a good choice
The good news for Team India is that during IPL 2021, it has got a good alternative to Hardik Pandya. Talking about KKR’s all-rounder Venkatesh Iyer who bats as well as bowls well. Iyer has scored 265 runs in 8 matches played this season at an average of 37.85, including two half-centuries. Along with this, this bowler has also taken 3 wickets, although Kolkata has not bowled much to Venkatesh.
Will Yuzvendra Chahal get a chance in place of Rahul Chahar?
Rahul Chahar has also got a chance in the squad of T20 World Cup 2021, while the selectors kept Yuzvendra Chahal out of the team. The selectors argued that Yuzvendra Chahal is out of the squad as he bowls slow deliveries, but with his same balls, this leg-spinner has performed well in IPL 2021. Chahal took 18 wickets in 15 matches played in this season. His economy rate was also just 7.05. Whereas this season was very bad for Rahul Chahar. Rahul Chahar took 13 wickets in 11 matches but his bowling appeared directionless in the UAE leg.
In such a situation, it is clear that the selectors of Team India still have a chance to make changes in the team. It is expected that considering the performance of Yuzvendra Chahal, Venkatesh Iyer, they will be given a place in the squad. However, its chances are very less.
Team India for T20 World Cup 2021- Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, R Ashwin, Axar Patel, Varun Chakraborty, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami.
