New Delhi: Now only 7 days are left for the T20 world to start. But before this, it is constantly being demanded that there should be some changes in the 15-member team under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. The biggest reason behind this has been that the performance of many players in the current IPL season has caught everyone’s attention. Now two players of IPL team RCB, captained by Kohli, can be included in the team.
These two players will hit the entry in the team
According to ICC rules, Sunday is the last day to make any changes in the Indian T20 World Cup squad and former cricketer Madan Lal has suggested the selectors to include Yuzvendra Chahal and Harshal Patel in the team. Chahal has been in good form in the ongoing UAE leg of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. As he is getting better with every game, his absence in the 15-man T20 World Cup squad of the Indian team has now become a topic of discussion.
Harshal Patel is in lethal form
Meanwhile, Patel has also put in some impressive performances, one of which is a hat-trick against Mumbai Indians. He is also the current Purple Cap holder with 30 wickets to his name in 14 matches. His slow deliveries have arguably been the toughest for the batsmen in the IPL this season. IANS has also learned that Patel is in the race to join the Indian team in UAE as a net bowler.
Knock on the door of selectors
Madan Lal told IANS, ‘I still cannot understand why Chahal was not selected earlier. He is doing well and is our best spinner. He is doing well in the first and current IPL as well. When I came to know about this I was a little surprised. Chahal is being ignored. The other is Harshal Patel. He should also be included in the team.
He said, ‘Who will replace the selectors in the team, it has to be seen. They should balance accordingly which will help the team in the tournament. But I suggest these two players, Chahal and Patel, should be included. Ever since the squad was announced, critics and some former players have expressed concern over the absence of some top players like Shikhar Dhawan and Chahal. Especially after his performance during the IPL 2021 UAE leg.
