The suggestions given by head coach Rahul Dravid to coach Chetan Sharma were fully implemented. Rohit Sharma was formally named Tuesday as the new captain of the Indian T20 team for the three-game series against New Zealand, replacing Virat Kohli.
Rahul Dravid is a visionary of Indian cricket. For a year later, he is known as a preparation cricketer as of today. Its effect was also visible in the selection process. One year later, the T20 World Cup will be played in Australia.
Rahul Dravid has taken the first step so that the mistakes that occurred in this World Cup are not made in Australia. For this reason, the form was preferred over the great name.
Youth spirit is very important in T20 cricket, which is why a dozen young faces have had a chance in the team from now on to get used to the team atmosphere next year.
Ruturaj (635 runs), Harshal (32 wickets), Avesh (24 wickets) and Venkatesh (370 runs and 3 wickets) were unanimously selected after their stellar performances in the IPL.
Ruturaj Gaikwad, the top scorer of runs in the 2021 Indian Premier League, and Harshal Patel, the biggest wicket bearer, have also been included in India’s 16-man squad.
Rohit Sharma (Captain)Rohit Sharma, who scored 3,000 runs in the T20 International cricket, received the captaincy because his captaincy record is so good. He has led India to 8 wins in 10 T20 matches. Apart from this, he has won his Mumbai franchise 5 times in IPL.
Rohit Sharma has scored 3,038 runs in 116 games. Based on the information so far, he will only open the batting.
KL Rahul (Vice-captain) – If Rohit Sharma is not available in a match, the captaincy will be handed over to KL Rahul. Rahul has captained the Punjab Kings in IPL. After a poor start to the T20 World Cup, KL Rahul scored half a century against Afghanistan, Scotland and Namibia. They gave it the place because of its shape.
Suryakumar Yadav- Suryakumar Yadav could not live up to the expectations he had in the T20 World Cup but he is a trustworthy and very young Dravid. Suryakumar Yadav, who scored a withering half-century against England, is also in the works for the World Cup to be held in Australia. That is why he has been given a place on the team.
Ishaan Kishan- Like Suryakumar’s performance, Ishan Kishan also disappointed in the T20 World Cup. Although he only had one chance, he couldn’t take it. Known for his fast races, Ishaan will be useful to the team at the T20 World Cup in Australia, so another young face remained in the team. You can also do wicket maintenance when the time comes.
Rishabh trousers Rishabh Pant, who scored fast against Afghanistan, had an average against Pakistan and a poor hitting against New Zealand. But this year Pant has shown what level of a cricketer he is. He has scored 590 runs in 38 games played so far.
Shreyas Iyer- Former Delhi Capitals captain Shreyas Iyer has been named to the squad to provide stability in the middle order. He can be seen in the role of a slightly older player on the team. He scored 175 runs in 8 matches at IPL 2021. He has also scored 550 runs in 29 T20 matches played for India so far.
Gautwad- RuturajThe 2021 IPL winning team, Chennai Super Kings starter Rituraj Gaikwad, has been inducted into the squad. This season, Gaikwad scored 635 runs in 16 games with an average of 45. This includes 4 half centuries and an explosive century (101) against Rajasthan. He reached 64 fours and 23 sixes this season. Gaikwad was tasked with speeding up entries, which he did well. In the final match, he snatched the Orange Cap from KL Rahul. Rituraj made his debut for India during the Sri Lanka series.
Venkatesh Iyer-Venkatesh Iyer, runner-up of the 2021 IPL Kolkata Knight Riders team, had a shot at the T20 team against New Zealand.
It will not be an exaggeration to say that it is thanks to starter Venkatesh Iyer that the Kolkata team reached the IPL 2021 playoffs. In 10 games, Iyer scored 370 runs with an average of 41 in which his best score was 67 runs. In this season he scored 4 half centuries and also took 3 wickets.
Yuzvendra Chahal- Yuzvendra Chahal, who could not be included in the Indian team in the T20 World Cup, has been included in the team. Yuzvendra Chahal became man of the match in the first T20 of the Australia tour. This is also in the focus of team management. Yuzvendra Chahal is India’s second most successful T20 bowler. Chahal has taken 63 wickets in 49 games.
Ravichandran Ashwin-Only Ravichandran Ashwin is the only player who is very senior and appears in the T20 series against New Zealand. Ravichandran Ashwin had a late opportunity in the T20 World Cup, but he proved his importance in 3 matches by giving only 63 runs and taking 6 wickets. Ravichandran Ashwin has secured the most wickets for India in the T20 World Cup so far. He has taken 26 wickets with an average of 15.40 for the Indian team in 18 matches of 4 World Cups.
Akshar Patel- Spinner Axar Patel also performed well for Delhi Capitals at IPL 2021. He took 15 wickets with the ball. At the same time, in the lower order, he can score runs as fast as Jadeja. The team management has decided to give him more opportunities.
Avesh Khan- Avesh is capable of bowling at a rapid pace and has won 24 wickets in 16 games for Delhi Capitals in the 2021 IPL season. He was second on the list of the greatest tipping takers along with Harshal Patel (32 wickets). . He was also associated with the India T20 World Cup team as a net thrower and, after losing the second match, came up for the Syed Mushtaq Trophy.
Bhuvneshwar KumarFast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar probably has the last chance to prove himself. He is nowhere near his best, but has been held back due to his lack of experience in fast bowling.
Deepak Chahar- Indian fast bowler Deepak Chahar, who took top bowling figure and hat-trick at T20 Internationals, has also been inducted into the squad. He has the art of accurately bowling in the spray. That is why he has been included in the team.
Mohammad Siraj- Mohammad Siraj has become an integral part of India in test cricket, especially in test cricket. The next World Cup is in Australia and they have had a great run in Australia. That is why he has been included in the team. Right now he has been able to take only 3 wickets in 3 T20 matches, but Dravid seems to be in the mood to hone his talent.
Harshal Patel- Purple cap holder Harshal Patel, who is looking for the Royal Challengers Bangalore this season, has also been featured in the T20 series against the New Zealand team. In the opener against Mumbai, he made a record of taking 5 wickets in the opener of any season. At the end of the tournament, it was Royal Challengers Bangalore and the best performance of any bowler at IPL in terms of terrains. He took 32 wickets in 15 games with an average of 14.
