MSK Prasad, the former chief selector of Team India, has raised questions on the Indian T20 World Cup team (T20 World Cup 2021). MSK Prasad made a big deal about not choosing Shikhar Dhawan and Krunal Pandya. MSK Prasad believes that both these players should have got a chance in the squad. Prasad said that Dhawan and Krunal Pandya will be missed during the T20 World Cup (Team India squad for T20 World Cup 2021). MSK Prasad believes that Dhawan has experience and form with him, so he must have got a chance in the squad.
Let us tell you that Shikhar Dhawan is currently playing for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021 and he is the highest run-scorer in the tournament. The Orange Cap of IPL is a century on his head. Dhawan has scored 422 runs in 9 matches so far in IPL 2021. Dhawan’s batting average is 52.75 and his strike rate is also more than 131. Dhawan has 3 half-centuries with the bat.
Dhawan continues to perform well
It is not that Dhawan has done well in the IPL this year. This left-handed batsman is scoring more than 400 runs for the last 6 seasons. In 2016, 2019, and 2020, Dhawan scored more than 500 runs. Last year, 618 runs came off his bat and the team reached the final. Dhawan has scored more than 400 runs in IPL so far 8 times. However, despite this, the Indian selectors did not consider him fit for the T20 World Cup.
Ishan Kishan has been given preference over Shikhar Dhawan, who is an opener as well as a wicketkeeper. Let us tell you that R Ashwin has also got a place in the T20 World Cup team, who has not played T20 matches for India for the last four years. On the other hand, Axar Patel has got a chance in place of Krunal Pandya, who is showing his bowling power in the IPL.
India squad for T20 World Cup – Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, R Ashwin, Varun Chakravarthy, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Bhuvneshwar Kumar,
