The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced the team for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 at 9 pm on Wednesday, 8 September. The selectors have selected a 15-member team for this mega event to be hosted by the BCCI on the soil of UAE and Oman, which will be captained by Virat Kohli.
Virat Kohli will be the captain of Team India in the T20 World Cup for the first time, because before this Mahendra Singh Dhoni has commanded Team India in a total of 6 ICC T20 World Cups held from 2007 to 2016. For the first time, Virat Kohli has a chance to show his majesty as a captain in this mega event. This team, selected by the selectors, looks quite balanced considering the conditions in the UAE. In such a situation, India has a chance to win the second T20 World Cup.
In view of the corona virus epidemic, the Indian selectors have kept 3 players as reserves along with the 15-member main team. These include the names of Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur. None of the names in the Indian team selected for the T20 World Cup 2021 is surprising. The selectors have reposed faith in the same players, who have been a part of the team for a long time and were part of the scheme of things for this mega event.
R Ashwin has got a chance in the T20 team after a long time. The selectors have kept the experienced spinner in the team because the conditions of the United Arab Emirates i.e. UAE are liked by the spinners, especially the off-spinners are effective in the UAE. That’s why he has been kept in the team. However, leg-spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Shikhar Dhawan are not part of Team India nor have they been kept as reserves.
Indian team 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, Axar Patel, Varun Chakraborty, Jasprit Bumrah , Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mummad Shami.
Reserve players: Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur
Shikhar Dhawan will not be a Part of India Team:
The Indian team for the T20 World Cup 2021 has been announced. Senior opener batsman Shikhar Dhawan was not included in this team. A total of 18 players were selected in this team, including three reserve players. Dhawan was in very good form these days, so his not being selected was a shocking decision. Dhawan has always performed well in the ICC event and in the league match of the 2019 ODI World Cup, he was out of the series against Australia due to injury, but in that match he scored a century and the team won.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be with Team India as a Mentor in T20 World Cup:
The Indian cricket team for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 has been announced. On Wednesday, the selectors selected the 15-member team after a long meeting. The team will be captained by Virat Kohli while former captain Mahendra Singh will be associated with the team in this tournament as a mentor.
Captain Dhoni, who won Team India the first title of the ICC T20 World, is counted among the most successful captains in the world. When this tournament was started for the first time in the year 2007, the Indian captain created history by capturing the trophy with a team adorned with youth. India defeated arch-rivals Pakistan in the final.
