The T20 World Cup is starting in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from the 17th of next month and for this Team India has been announced.
Shikhar Dhawan has not got a place in Team India for the T20 World Cup.
The Senior Selection Committee of BCCI has recently announced Team India for the T20 World Cup starting next month. The absence of some players in this was surprising, in which the biggest name was Shikhar Dhawan. The openers lost the battle to Dhawan, KL Rahul and Ishan Kishan. He was the captain of the Indian team that toured Sri Lanka in July and was in form. His not being in the team was an exasperation for many people. It also includes the name of former India wicketkeeper Farokh Engineer. The engineer has said that he was surprised to see the left-handed batsman not being named in the team. However, he has said that the team that has been selected is good. The T20 World Cup is to be held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from 17 October to 14 November.
Speaking to Sports Tak, Engineer said, “Shikhar Dhawan… I am surprised that he was not selected in the team because he had performed brilliantly. But it is a big problem for the Indian selectors that a player like Shikhar Dhawan had to be dropped which is a big disappointment as he can play like an international batsman in any team. He has proved himself many times. I don’t think a player of talent like him should be put on trial.”
The engineer said that it was a difficult task to remove whom for Dhawan to choose. He said, “But who would you remove? KL Rahul has done a great job. He is a great batsman, one of the best batsmen in the world. Rohit Sharma is at the top of his form. I still think this is a great team and I think we have every chance of winning the T20 World Cup.”
The selectors said this
BCCI senior selection committee chairman Chetan Sharma had said that Dhawan will remain an important player but he cannot tell anything about keeping him out. He had said in the virtual press conference, “Dhawan is a very important player for us. Can’t tell what happened here. He is in the loop. We felt that at this time the need is that they should take rest and look at others.
