T20 World Cup 2021: The spinner becomes a ‘headache’ for the Indian team, Virat Kohli will tussle with the selectors

New Delhi:- The Indian team for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 has almost been selected. Team can be announced today or tomorrow at any time. In such a situation, there is a lot of speculation about the Indian team selected for the T20 World Cup. For the role of extra spinner, the names of the mysterious bowler Varun Chakravarthy and fast leg-break bowler Rahul Chahar, besides Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan for the second wicketkeeper. are said to be involved in. Now it has to be seen who gets this opportunity in the Indian team and who loses this opportunity out of hand.

The Chetan Sharma-led selection committee is expected to meet on Tuesday or Wednesday at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) headquarters in Mumbai and will see captain Virat Kohli joining Manchester and coach Ravi Shastri online from London. BCCI president Sourav Ganguly and secretary Jay Shah (selection committee convener) are also likely to be part of the committee’s most important selection meeting. Most of the teams are announcing a 15-member squad for this World Cup, while the BCCI may announce an 18- or 20-member squad.

Chahal-Jadeja’s place almost confirmed
The ICC has approved keeping 30 people in the team instead of 23 due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. This also includes supporting team members. Any team can have more than 30 members, but its expenses will have to be borne by the cricket board of the country concerned. The selection of at least 13 to 15 members in India’s white ball (limited overs cricket) team is almost certain. For some places the selectors may have to discuss. The place of Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja is almost certain for the spinners in the team. For the extra spinner, there will be a contest between Chakraborty, who performed brilliantly in the IPL and Rahul Chahar, who impressed on the tour of Sri Lanka.

Ishaan Kishan may get a chance
At the same time, both Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul are capable of playing the role of wicketkeeper. In such a situation, Ishan Kishan, who performed well in Sri Lanka, can be preferred over the talented Sanju Samson. Samson has failed to perform according to his talent. While Suryakumar Yadav can get a place in the team, Shreyas Iyer is also likely to return.

Shikhar Dhawan vs Prithvi Shaw
After Rohit Sharma and Rahul, it will be a contest between Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw for the slot of the additional opener. Dhawan and Shaw have done well in the IPL and then on the tour of Sri Lanka. Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami (if fully fit) are almost certain to be picked in the fast bowling department. Deepak Chahar and Mohammad Siraj are also strong contenders in this. Washington Sundar is out of the IPL due to injury, so even if he is selected, it will be without any match practice.

Sakariya and Natarajan are also contenders
Among the left-arm fast bowlers, Chetan Sakaria and T Natarajan are also contenders for a place in the team. Although Natarajan has been away from the game for a long time, Sakariya can accompany the team as a net bowler.

India’s probable squad for ICC T20 World Cup:

Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Shardul Thakur, Shikhar Dhawan /Prithvi Shaw, Ishaan Kishan/Sanju Samson, Varun Chakraborty/Rahul Chahar, Chetan Sakaria/T Natarajan, Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Krunal Pandya.
