T20 World Cup 2021: Team India was overwhelmed by not choosing Dhawan!
10-wicket loss to Pakistan…8-wicket loss to New Zealand and almost out of T20 World Cup 2021. Indian fans had big dreams when Indian players were batting in IPL 2021. Bumrah’s bowling was brilliant. KL Rahul had rained runs. Even in the warm-up matches, a strong team like England and Australia was jokingly defeated by Team India. But as soon as the tournament started, the timing changed, the performance changed. The batsmen and bowlers lost their form. Where were you dreaming of winning the T20 World Cup and now the card of Team India in this tournament is almost clear. By the way, let us tell you that behind this plight of the Indian team, not only the performance of this tournament. There are also strange decisions behind this which are beyond the comprehension of any cricket expert and people who understand cricket. When Team India was selected for the T20 World Cup 2021, the player who performed best in ICC tournaments did not get a place in Virat and Co. The player who has scored 6 centuries in tournaments like World Cup and Champions Trophy. It is being talked about Shikhar Dhawan, whose memory always comes to people only at the time of India’s defeat.
Not choosing Shikhar Dhawan in Team India’s T20 World Cup team was a decision in itself to lead to defeat. Shikhar Dhawan who has form, has immense experience of playing in big tournaments, why was that player not included in the squad of T20 World Cup? If the selection in Team India is done on the basis of performance, then this player is far ahead of other players including Virat Kohli in that too.
Dhawan was in form but was sent out
Talking about Shikhar Dhawan’s performance in ICC events, this player has scored 537 runs in 10 matches in the World Cup at an average of 53.70, which includes 3 centuries, 1 half-century. In the Champions Trophy, Dhawan has scored 701 runs in 10 innings at an average of 77.88. In this too, Dhawan has scored 3 centuries, 3 half-centuries. Meaning Dhawan has scored 6 centuries in ICC tournaments. In IPL too, Shikhar Dhawan has been proving himself for the last five years. Dhawan has scored more than 475 runs every time in the last five seasons in the IPL, in which he has scored 2 centuries, 23 half-centuries. Despite such excellent figures, Shikhar Dhawan is out of the T20 World Cup team and in the match against Pakistan, he was sitting in the audience and applauding.
Ishan Kishan was given a chance in Team India as a backup wicketkeeper and opener, while apart from Pant, KL Rahul can also do wicketkeeping. If Shikhar Dhawan had got a chance in place of Ishan Kishan, then perhaps the result would have been different. Well now you will regret it… the bird has eaten the field.
