The veterans have not expressed any surprise about the selection of the team and have described the team as balanced.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the team for the T20 World Cup today i.e. on Monday. Different types of reactions are coming about this. Not much changes have been made in the team playing in the Asia Cup. Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel have returned to the squad. At the same time, Deepak Chahar, who played a match with Avesh Khan and Ravi Bishnoi, was also excluded. Senior players said, the team has been selected as per the expectation. Although Irfan Pathan has commented about Deepak Hooda.

In the Indian batting top order, three of the best players in the world are present in the Indian team. Former captain Virat Kohli with captain Rohit Sharma and vice-captain KL Rahul. 35-year-old Rohit has scored 3620 runs in 136 matches at an average of 31.75. Talking about Rohit’s recent form, in the Asia Cup, he scored 133 runs in four matches at an average of 33.25. KL Rahul scored 133 runs in five innings and Virat Kohli scored 276 runs in five innings. If these three players are successful in performing well in the World Cup, then Team India can win the title.

On the other hand, if we talk about the strong side of bowling, then the bowling has been strengthened with the arrival of Jasprit Bumrah and Harshal Patel. Bhuvneshwar’s play with Bumrah in the playing-11 is almost certain. Either Harshal and Arshdeep can be kept in the team according to the circumstances. In the spin department, the responsibility rests on Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal. Chahal and Ashwin can be successful on Australian pitches. In the absence of Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel can prove to be the trump card. He can fill Jadeja’s deficiency to a great extent. In the Asia Cup, Bhuvneshwar took 14, Arshdeep took five and Chahal took four. Ashwin had two successes in two matches.

Senior Player Said – Team Balanced

  • Senior cricketer Irfan Pathan has congratulated all the players selected to play the World Cup for Team India. Regarding taking the team to Deepak Hooda, he said that a good decision has been taken.
  • Aakash Chopra said that this is an interesting opportunity for four fast bowlers and Hardik Patel for the World Cup in Australia.
  • TV commentator Harsha Bhogle said that there is no surprise about the Indian team selected for the T20 World Cup. The good thing about the selection of the team is that they have expressed confidence in the players who have played so far.
  • No surprise, said senior cricket journalist Ayaz Menon. Axar Patel was picked in place of Ravindra Jadeja, while Hooda could not be ignored after being successful in almost every match. While Arshdeep Singh, a left-armer, gives variety to the attack, Ashwin has been given preference over Kuldeep and Bishnoi for their excellent skills, experience and understanding of the game.
