As the T20 world cup 2022 is on the verge of its start, there are many players that BCCI so far has chosen as their best which started right from the beginning of the year, and then the IPL and on. But believe us, if there’s any tournament who gave the Indian selectors the number of choices they have today, it will be from the tournament, IPL.
If you want to hear names, it would be Deepak Hooda, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik, Ayush Badoni, and few more.
But in the world class tournament, if there should be any players, it should also be the best. In order to support this theory, the BCCI has chosen some of its best players for the tournament. But during the filtration or the selection process, there are a few players in fact 3 players who should be dropped from India’s T20 World Cup Squad. Know who it is:
Harshal Patel – The player who got noticed from the IPL, and played for the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise, who’s stars are not as good as it seemed in the IPL, why? First, is the injury, which led the star bowler out of the nets or practice and secondly after returning, a poor form of play, taking just 1 wicket off three games with an average of 99 and economy rate of 12.38.
According to experts, as One sword cannot live in two sheaths, similarly, ‘two Patels’ cannot be placed in one squad ( Axar and Harshal ), just kidding, the truth is, Harshal needs to be replaced by either experienced Mohammed Shami or Deepak Chahar.
Deepak Hooda – Next comes the name of Deepak Hooda, who again is the by-product of IPL. Deepak Hooda showed his skills in the IPL, which was great, but in the matches thereafter, although good but not best was seen from the young cricketer. Especially, the Asia Cup, where in the crucial overs, Hooda seemed reckless and displayed some poor selection of shots which could be disastrous in an event like the World Cup.
Ravichandran Ashwin – Now this name must have shocked or either baffled some of you. But trust us, the name Ravichandran, despite his experience, hasn’t performed as it was expected and neither is he an allrounder. If you see the stats, through the year (2022) out of 6 games he played, he took just 5 wickets with an economy rate of 6.12, but in the recent series against SA, where Ravi was given a chance, he failed to fetch any wickets while others took 1 wicket each.
We think Ravi Chandran should be dropped giving some young and energetic face a chance.
A form is an important factor in a players life, which also means no second thoughts while playing, because if you do, the performance drops and many more things. We probably think the same for the player we mentioned above. Sometimes, it doesn’t work out whatever tactic you use, but what works is time and patience and all questions getting answered. Everything has a time and before that time, nothing is possible. For instance, look at Virat Kohli.
