Selectors are all set to finalise the squad for T20 World Cup in UAE by the first week of September. Chetan Sharma will lead the BCCI selection committee. Most of the players have already been zeroed down upon. But the committee will sit down to fill up the few remaining spots.
BCCI released the new IPL schedule for 2021,The second phase of IPL 2021 will create no impact on the decision of the selection committee. This is because the deadline for finalising the names is September 10. Players like Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer haven’t done much to impress the selectors. Shikhar Dhawan failed to showcase his skills in the Sri Lanka series. And Shreyas Iyer recently recovered from a shoulder injury and is yet to play in a competitive match. But for players like Krunal Pandya, the second phase of IPL 2021 could have been a great opportunity. However, that won’t be the case anymore. The selectors are also in a complicated situation. The selectors initially planned to finalise the squad depending on IPL performances.
Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Ishan Kishan will have to fight for two spots. Team India is ready to give Shreyas Iyer a go. And for Shikhar Dhawan, his past experiences will come in handy. But the chance of Ishan Kishan seems to be very thin. Team India will pick up a spin all-rounder from Krunal Pandya, Axar Patel and Washington Sundar. Let’s see who else can make it to the squad.
