T20 World Cup 2021: Star batsman Shreyas Iyer was in a race to become new captain of Indian team, now dropped |

New Delhi: T20 World Cup 2021 is starting from 17th of this month. For this big tournament, BCCI has announced the Indian team only last month. In this team captained by Virat Kohli, 15 best players of India have been given place. While three players have been kept in reserve. But there were some cricketers in this team whose place was made but the selectors did not give them a chance.

This star dropped from the World Cup team

Middle-order star batsman Shreyas Iyer was left out of India’s T20 World Cup squad. Iyer is one of the three players kept in reserve for the World Cup, but he was not given a place in the main team. Iyer was the team’s permanent number 4 batsman for a long time, but when the England team visited India earlier this year, he suffered such an injury that he was out of the team for a long time. After this, the selectors kept Suryakumar Yadav in place of Iyer and he has now confirmed his place by showing the best game. However, in the current IPL season, Suryakumar’s form has been very poor and now there is talk of bringing Iyer back in the team in his place.

snatched away captaincy

Shreyas Iyer, who consistently led his team Delhi Capitals to success in the IPL, was once a big contender to become the captain of the Indian team. In fact, after the retirement of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, India had only KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer as the big contenders for the captaincy. But Iyer is finding it difficult to make his place in the team now. At the same time, the captaincy of Delhi Capitals team in IPL was given to young wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant in his place. Let us tell you that last year, under the captaincy of Iyer, the Delhi team had traveled till the IPL final. But now it seems that Iyer will not even get the captaincy of Delhi again because the performance of this team has been amazing under the captaincy of Pant.

one injury ruined everything

Iyer was playing continuously before Suryakumar’s arrival in the team. But in the home series against England, Iyer suffered an injury that took him a long time to recover. Looking at the current situation, it seems that even captain Virat Kohli himself trusts Suryakumar Yadav more than Iyer. A big reason behind this is that Suryakumar has done well for the Indian team and Mumbai Indians in the IPL. But Iyer’s performance in the second phase of the IPL has been excellent and it is believed that he can now return to the team soon.
