New Delhi: T20 World Cup 2021 is going to start from October 17. The 15-member team of Team India, selected for the ICC World Cup 2021, includes many shocking names and there are many such star players who were surprised by the selectors by not giving them a chance. The biggest name in this comes from India’s opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan. Now whether this decision of the selectors will prove to be right or not, only time will tell, but till now it is showing a big loss for Team India.
Team India’s big mistake keeping Dhawan out
T20 World Cup will be played immediately after IPL. Delhi Capitals senior player Shikhar Dhawan is in excellent form in IPL 2021. He has scored 454 runs in 11 matches played so far with a strike rate of 130.45 and he is currently at the top of the list of highest run scorers. The World Cup will also be held in the UAE, in such a situation, seeing Dhawan’s form, it seems that the selectors have made a big mistake by not taking him in the team. Not only this, the player who has been given a chance in place of Dhawan is proving to be a complete flop in the IPL.
This player is in bad form
For the T20 World Cup 2021, the selectors thought it more appropriate to place 23-year-old young batsman Ishan Kishan in place of Shikhar Dhawan, but this batsman’s performance in the current IPL has been very poor. In the recently played 3 matches in IPL 2021, this batsman has proved to be a flop. Ishan Kishan scored just 11 runs in the match played against Chennai Super Kings on 19 September. Ishaan Kishan’s poor performance continued even after this. Ishan Kishan was dismissed on 23 September against Kolkata after scoring just 14 runs. After this, Ishan Kishan could only score 9 runs in the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on 26 September. Surprisingly, Ishan Kishan has played only 3 T20 Internationals for India so far and his debut has also happened this year. Despite this, this batsman got a place in the team of T20 World Cup.
shikhar dhawan big match player
India is a balanced team. Considering the form Shikhar was in, he had an opportunity. Shikhar could also have been kept in the T20 World Cup squad, as he performs well in big tournaments. Shikhar Dhawan has scored more than 400 runs in the current season of IPL. Even Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma could not do what Shikhar Dhawan did.
Indian team for T20 world cup
Virat Kohli (capt), Rohit Sharma (vice captain), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Varun Chakraborty, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami.
