Indian team squad for T20 World Cup 2021: The main contenders

Indian team squad for T20 World Cup 2021: As India’s coaches are due to meet on Wednesday to pick the team for the T20 World Cup, TRH presents the likely combination.
Virat Kohli (captain): As he gets more and more eager to win an ICC trophy, this tournament just might be his song of redemption. He offers the possibility of hitting in the middle order as well as opening the innings, as he had suggested earlier in the year.

Rohit Sharma: India’s most prolific white ball batsman over the past five years chooses himself. His experience as a captain is also useful for Kohli.

KL Rahul: One of the most consistent openers in T20 cricket. Also offers the ticket office option.

Suryakumar Yadav: The 30-year-old has been a mainstay of the middle order for the Mumbai Indians and has carried his form into international cricket as well. Can anchor, rebuild, and attack.

Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper): The powerful southpaw’s reputation has grown as a match-winner over the past year or so. The oppositions fear his presence in the middle.

Hardik Pandya: versatile impact. He was prepared by BCCI and the Mumbai Indians to compete in the T20 World Cup and has the ability to play big with the bat on the first ball.

Ravindra Jadeja: Another crucial all-rounder. Play with the left arm and can change gears with the bat depending on the situation. Gun thief.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar: One of India’s most consistent white-ball seamers has looked in fine form after coming back from injury in March.

Jasprit Bumrah: India’s trump card. Deadly fast thrower at all stages of around.
Shardul Thakur: Last sensation. A death specialist with the ball and his ability to hit big is a huge plus.

Yuzvendra Chahal: The leg spinner has been Kohli’s man of choice for the past four years. The form has been indifferent over the past year, but his experience could be of help.

Shreyas Iyar: A stable mid-order bat, could be a backup for Suryakumar.

Shikhar Dhawan: The team management has been reluctant to have him play T20 cricket. But his IPL form and experience playing slower tracks in the UAE could give him an edge over Prithvi Shaw.

Deepak Chahar: The crimper could be a backup for Bhuvneshwar. His staff has been a revelation lately. Could add depth to lower order.

Varun Chakravarthy: The team management is delighted to have a mystery spinner in the line. However, his questionable right shoulder could be a matter of concern.

Rahul Chahar: It could be a swing between the Mumbai Indian Leg Spinner and Chakravarthy.

Prithvi Shaw: The choice could be between Dhawan and Prithvi. The flamboyant Mumbai opener showed he can shift into fifth gear faster than Dhawan.

Mohammed Siraj / Shami: While Siraj is hot, he has yet to establish himself as a T20 bowler. Shami’s experience and box office ability could give him an advantage.

Axar Patel: Backup at constant scope for Ravindra Jadeja.

Washington Sundar: His selection is subject to recovery from a finger injury.
The deadline for submitting the last 15 names to the ICC is October 10, one week before the start of the tournament. ICC has allowed seven additional members to a team due to Covid restrictions. Each team can have 30 members, including support staff, and any additional members traveling with a team will be under the responsibility of their board of directors.
Indeed, the tables can have any number of pending players remaining in the bubble apart from the last 15 submitted to the ICC. We can expect some changes to the roster announced on Wednesday once the IPL launches on September 19.
