The selectors have exactly 16 matches to confirm the squad for the T20 World Cup. And the real test begins now. Rahul Dravid may have a rough idea of ​​how things might go with the three-match T20I series against England, but there are still some gaps left. Dinesh Karthik failed to make an impression in England and Akshar Patel failed in his only chance. Here’s a look at who has been confirmed in India’s T20 World Cup squad:

India T20 WC Squad:

  1. Rohit Sharma (C)
  2. KL Rahul (VC)
  3. Virat Kohli

This leaves Team India with only three spots to fill. But the competition for these three spots is more than ever. Virat Kohli’s poor form means India need a backup No.3. While Ishan Kishan is confirmed as the backup opener, two players are still competing for the backup No.3 spot. Deepak Hooda and Shreyas Iyer are the two players who are in the squad. dispute

India T20 WC squad: Who is vying for three spots?

  • Kuldeep Yadav: Despite an impressive IPL 2022 show, he has been out of favor due to injuries. After recovery, the T20 series will be his biggest chance to return to the fold and especially in the T20 World Cup.
  • Akshar Patel: He played the match-winning knock in the 2nd ODI against West Indies. But with Ravindra Jadeja and his poor T20 form, he is yet to seal a place in the World T20.
  • Shreyas Iyer: Despite a brilliant run against the West Indies, Iyer’s time in short-ball Tests is coming to an end. All the bowlers targeted Iyer’s weaknesses. As the T20 World Cup will be held in Australia, the short ball will be the real test. In Kohli’s absence, Iyer has a real chance to seal the backup spot.
  • Dinesh Karthik: He is all but certain. But his underwhelming display in England has left much to be desired as to whether he can bring the same intensity against stronger teams. 5 matches against West Indies will be an opportunity for him to perfect his role as a finisher and book his place.
  • Arshdeep Singh: A victim of India’s world-class bowling attack, Arshdeep Singh did not get much of a chance. But only in one match did he perform brilliantly.
  • Obsession: Very expensive and very inconsistent, Avesh Khan’s pace is the only X-factor. There is little chance of taking him with Shardul Thakur.
  • And Ashwin: With no T20 plans, Ashwin has been called up to the T20 squad once again. But it can only be called selection madness as he has not played for India in T20 since the series against New Zealand. But here he is again and this time, he has to be in contention for a T20 WC spot.
  • Deepak Hooda: His performances of late have given India the perfect replacement for Virat Kohli, who can also bowl. But with Shreyas Iyer still in the race, it will be a tie-breaker between him and Iyer. The Windies series will give India an idea of ​​who can be the No. 3 backup.

Players with outside opportunities: Shardul Thakur and Deepak Chahar would be the two players who could still make it due to their batting ability. However, Chahar is still recovering from a back injury. Even if he returns for the Asia Cup, he will have exactly 11 matches to prepare for the T20 World Cup and that is not much time. Shardul and Prasid are likely to make it as the touring reserves as both have plenty of scope.

Players who cannot do this:

  • Sanju Samson: Not much competition in the top-order and not many figures to boast of.
  • Omran Malik: Failed to make an impression on the international stage including against Ireland.
  • Ravi Bishnoi: While impressive, the youngster has strong competition from seasoned professionals.
  • Mohammed Shami: Despite an impressive IPL 2022 show, he has not featured in a T20 match for India since the T20 WC 2021.
  • Mohammad Siraj: Too expensive in the shortest format, Siraj is not in the T20 plans for now.
  • Venkatesh Iyer: As he rose to fame, he disappeared. Hardik’s return has not reduced Iyer’s chances. His poor show in IPL 2022 didn’t help the cause either.
