Team India T20 World Cup squad is likely to undergo major changes. The BCCI and chief selectors are expected to meet on Saturday to take a key decision on this.
Selectors And BCCI To Meet On Saturday Over Team India T20 World Cup Team:
Selectors And BCCI To Meet On Saturday Over Team India T20 World Cup Team: With October 10 being the last date to make changes and additions to the T20 World Cup squad, the BCCI and selection committees will meet tomorrow (Saturday). The event will discuss the future of the players selected for the Indian T20 World Cup squad. The selection committee will work hard to retain Mumbai Indians players Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishant Kishan, mystery spinner and KKR player Varun Chakraborty in the squad.
The BCCI selectors have already announced the squad for the T20 World Cup to be held in the UAE . ICC last monthThe ICC has sent a list of 15 players and three reserve players to the ICC following a deadline to send details of the coaching and support staff along with the list of World Cup players. Since the second phase of IPL 2021 has not started yet, the players have been selected keeping in view the existing form till then.
However, after getting a place in Team India, the performance of the respective players changed very poorly. The performance of young cricketers did not come as expected in the IPL. Even players who have earned a place in the team for the first time have failed miserably in the IPL. Original captain Virat Kohli has announced that he will step down as captain after this tournament. With this, Adalsi has to persevere to win the T20 World Cup anyway.
The fitness issue of Hardik Pandya and Varun Chakraborty has become a major headache
But it is a matter of concern that the players selected by the selection committee are performing poorly in the IPL. The form of Ishant Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya, who were selected from the Mumbai Indians in particular, has become embarrassing. Of whom Hardik Pandya has failed miserably this season.
Hardik Pandya, who was selected in the all-rounder quota, has been restricted to batting for some time now. He has failed to bowl at least four overs in T20I. Pandya, who played 11 matches in 2021 and scored just 117 runs, can understand how bad his form is.
Yajuvendra Chahal, Shreyas Iyer and Shardul Thakur are likely to feature in the squad.
Ishaan Kishan was in excellent form last season. Kishan was also instrumental in the Mumbai Indians winning the trophy last year. But Kishan, who has played 8 matches this season, has scored only 107 runs in total. However, Rajasthan Royals scored 50 off 25 balls and seems to be back in the groove. Even Surya Kumar Yadav is not meeting expectations. The aggression in him has decreased compared to the past. If Kishan and Suryakumar in Taparder want to become strong in the batting line-up, they are worried about lack of form.
Rahul Chahar also earned a place in the World Cup squad for the first time. But he is also failing miserably in the IPL right now. Veteran Yajuvendra Chahal was given the opportunity to put Pettimari Chahar next. The BCCI and the Chief Selection Committee will meet jointly on Saturday. Expect to select new ones instead of those who are not on the form. Yajuvendra Chahal, Shreyas Iyer and Shardul Thakur are likely to feature in the squad.
