India are missing these two players in T20 World Cup !

Team India have had a horrible start in their 2021 T20 World Cup so far. After losing their first two matches of the tournament against Pakistan and New Zealand respectively, the Blues are at a point where it is almost impossible for the to qualify for the knockout stages of the T20 World Cup. Quite a harsh and unimaginable fate given the fact that even a month ago, they were being considered as one of the favourites to win the title.

Team India have one of the strongest squads in the entire tournament but let’s be real, Cricket is played on the field and not on paper. India could not execute their plans in both their matches and they came out sort in all the departments, be it batting, bowling or fielding.

The selection committee took some bold decisions ahead of the T20 World Cup on the occasion of selecting the squad for team India. Many young talents were not given a chance. Ruturaj Gaikwad, Venkatesh Iyer, and Harshal Patel who were brilliant in IPL 2021, were not even considered for the squad.

However, there were two particular players that team India missed the most. They are Shikhar Dhawan and Yuzvendra Chahal.

Let’s talk about the veteran batsman first. One of the topscorers of IPL 2021, Shikhar Dhawan has also been hands down the most consistent player for Team India in ICC tournaments. Be it ODI or T20. When it comes to ICC tournaments, there is just no player better than Shikhar Dhawan. But he was not picked up for the 2021 T20 World Cup which shocked many. He is in good form and also has no injury issues.

The next player who India missed is Yuzvendra Chahal. Since the last few years, Yuzvendra Chahal has been the lone leg-spinner of Team India and he has been killing it. He has a brilliant record for team India but even he was not selected in team India’s squad for the T20 World Cup after a disappointing season of IPL. In the explanation that Virat Kohli gave about the selection of Rahul Chahar and Varun Chakravarthy over Yuzi Chahal is that they bowl at a faster pace. This explanation did not go well with the cricket analysts as well.
