India T20 World Cup 2021 Squad

India T20 World Cup 2021 Squad has been a good outfit in the shortest format.

India T20 World Cup 2021 Squad is a strong one and it looks balanced on the sheets. It is really difficult to make a playing eleven of this T20 World Cup 2021 squad because one cannot understand who should be in and out of the team. India needs few good individual performances to lift them up in the T20 World Cup 2021.

The youngster who rose to the occasion in the cash-rich league tournament, IPL, also needs to step up. India has named 15 member squad for the World T20 and they have three reserved players in the T20 World Cup 2021 squad. Team India has a golden opportunity to end their ICC Trophy drought in this T20 World Cup 2021 event. India hasn’t won a single ICC trophy since ICC Champions Trophy in England in 2013.

The man who won everything for India will mentor this team in the United Arab Emirates. Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been the mentor of the Indian Team ahead of the T20 World Cup 2021. MS Dhoni was the man under whom India won the T20 World Cup in 2007, ICC World Cup in 2011, and ICC Champions Trophy in 2013. Ravi Shastri and Virat Kohli will be pleased to have MS Dhoni on board just because Mahi Bhai brings a lot of experience to the Indian outfit and he knows what the team needs to win big tournaments.

India will be playing the T20 World Cup 2021 under Virat Kohli for the first time. In the 2016 World T20, India reached the semi-final stage. But Dhoni and his men lost to the current defending champions West Indies. According to the reports, this T20 World Cup 2021 event will last for Virat Kohli as the captain, and Rohit Sharma, the senior member, who was the part of World T20 2007 winning team will replace Virat as the limited-overs skipper. Now the team and Virat will be eyeing to perform well in this event.

India T20 World Cup 2021 Squad – The Positives

India has named the 15 member squad for this World T20 event. India T20 World Cup 2021 squad looks good with skipper Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and KL Rahul with the experienced batters of this format. While Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishen, and Rishabh Pant will be the young talents of Team India for the T20 World Cup 2021.

Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, and Ravichandran Ashwin have the experience of being all-rounders of the team with the youngster Axar Patel. The fast bowling department of the Team for the T20 World Cup 2021 event also looks good with JaspritBumrah, Mohammad Shami, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

The spin department will have Varun Chakravarthy along with Jadeja and Ashwin as the experienced spin bowlers. Ashwin has been added to India T20 World Cup 2021 Squad after the final of the ICC Champions Trophy which India lost against Pakistan in 2017. Ashwin will be the player to watch out for this World T20 event. Axar Patel will be the fourth spin bowler of this T20 World Cup 2021 India Squad.

India T20 World Cup 2021 Squad – The Negatives

India will miss having Shikhar Dhawan at the top order. Shikhar has been good in the T20 format for India over the years and he has performed well in the Indian Premier League. But still, due to one failure in the T20I series against Sri Lanka, the selectors have decided to drop the opening batsman for this World T20 event.

India also needs a solid player like Shreyas Iyer in the 15 member squad. The middle order of the Indian Team for the World T20 event does not look that good because of the inexperience and inconsistency of the Indian batsmen. If Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma open the innings and Virat Kohli bats at number three, then they need someone like ShreyasIyer who could be the proper number, four batsmen. Suryakumar can be good. But of late his form hasn’t been that good for Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2021 second phase.

Virat Kohli needs to bat through the innings and the skipper also needs to hold the one end up if the openers fail to give a desired start to the team.  Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav can take the control of the middle overs and players like Pant, Jaddu, and Hardik can finish the innings on a high with some lusty blows.

Shardul Thakur should have also been the 15 main members of the T20 World Cup 2021 Squad. Lord Thakur adds depth in the batting and India is not sure about Hardik Pandya’s batting and bowling. Hardik hasn’t been in good touch. Against Sri Lanka his performance with the bat and ball was disappointing and in the IPL 2021 season the second phase, Hardik didn’t bowl at all and his batting was no good which is why Mumbai Indians didn’t qualify for the playoffs. So India also needs an extra fast bowler who could add depth to their batting.

Here is the 15 member team of India T20 World Cup 2021 Squad

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, ViratKohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, JaspritBumrah, Mohammad Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Varun Chakravarthy, and Rahul Chachar.
