The ones who are involved in the Indian cricket prediction are now looking forward to the IPL but there is nothing bigger than the World T20 or the T20 world cup which is going to start immediately after the IPL and Indian team’s performance in it. This is going to be quite the test for all fantasy players and how they are going to perform in the biggest of T20 tournaments. Indian team recently announced their squad and it gets them in the zone for a big performance in the tournament.
The tournament is critical because we know that this is going to be the final tournament for Virat Kohli as a captain. He has taken the decision to drop the captaincy role post that and while there has been a lot of hearsay about it, they will for now just be focused on what they have for now and how they would want to deliver in this tournament.
The team saw some surprises or some tactical selections as they would like to put it. We saw that Ravichandran Ashwin has been picked in the World T20 after not having played a T20 game for close to 4 years. Yuzvendra Chahal who was one of the more preferred spinners for this team for the better part of Virat Kohli’s tenure has been out of favor now with form not being up to the mark. Another selection which raised a few eyebrows was the selection of Varun Chakravarthy who has been doing really well in the IPL and is perhaps a selection drawn out of his performances in the UAE where the world cup is going to be held.
There might be a chance that Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma may open the batting and the who at gets players like Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan in the game and involved. In the bowling department they have picked Bhuvneshvar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami as their key fast bowlers. The spinning options also include Ravindra Jadeja who can be a player that contributes with bat, ball and in the field. They are looking at KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant to be their wicket keeping options in addition to Ishan Kishan.
As far as the game changing players are concerned you would find that there are a few who would be looking to make a mark here. Suryakumar Yadav is the one person who is person the Indian team will be looking at to go out there and score unabashed runs. There is nothing that will frighten him and no situation which will be making him consider his outlook to the game. This will be a chance for Bumrah who uses his cutters brilliantly in these pitches and through variations gets the wickets in the death overs. He has always had the yorker that is deadly for the rest of the teams. You have a good mix of youth and experience. The youngsters like Rishabh Pant who are proven performers yet very young and unpredictable. What we have seen so far though is that in the UAE it is more about the players who are ready to grind it out and score runs in tough situations who do better. So do expect the old warhorses to still be the key to Indian success. KL Rahul is one of the technically sound players who you can expect to be a key factor in the world cup. We know he is perhaps the most complete player in the lineup right now.
