New Delhi: Former fast bowler Zaheer Khan has selected his 15-member Indian team for the T20 World Cup to be held in UAE this year. Zaheer Khan has not included veterans like Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer in his team. Shikhar Dhawan recently led the Indian team in the limited overs series against Sri Lanka. India won the ODI series by a margin of 2-1 while losing the T20I series by 1-2.
Zaheer Khan has expressed confidence in the pair of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma for the opening of the T20 World Cup. After this, Virat Kohli for number three and Suryakumar Yadav at number four is considered by Zaheer to be the best. The former fast bowler said that if Hardik Pandya does not bowl, then India should include an additional bowler instead of the batsman.
Zaheer Khan said in a conversation with Cricbuzz, ‘I would like to go to the opening with KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav will then come to bat. I know Virat has already made a statement that he wants to open the innings. But I would still say that Virat should open only when Hardik Pandya is not available to bowl. In this scenario, you should give a chance to an extra bowler instead of a batsman.
Zaheer trusted these spinners
In the spin department, Zaheer Khan reposed faith in Rahul Chahar and Yuzvendra Chahal. However, he did not include chinaman Kuldeep Yadav, who has taken two hat-tricks in limited overs cricket for the national team. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s place in Zaheer Khan’s team was also not confirmed. Kumar had a match-winning performance against Sri Lanka in the first T20 International by taking four wickets.
Zaheer Khan advised to include either Varun Chakravarthy and Washington Sundar. The former left-arm fast bowler said, “I will keep Yuzvendra Chahal as the main spinner in my team and would love to give Rahul Chahar a chance with him.” In this format we have seen how important the leg-spinner has proved to be. Chakraborty and Sundar will be the spinners who will bowl with the new ball. If you want a mystery element then you can choose Chakraborty, otherwise you can take over the field with Sundar.
Indian team for T20 World Cup selected by Zaheer Khan:
Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Rahul Chahar, T Natarajan/ Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Washington Sundar /Varun Chakraborty.
