After playing the T20 series against South Africa, Team India’s next assignment is now Ireland. India must play a series of two T20 matches in this round. Ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup that will be held in Australia, the Indian team will try its players in several T20 matches so that it can prepare a strong 15-man squad. According to reports, all teams are required to submit their player list to the ICC before September 15th, so the players are left with little time to attract the attention of the selectors with their performance. After the recently concluded T20 series against South Africa, the sword started hanging over some players. If these players’ racket remains flopped in upcoming matches, then their card can be cut into the World Cup lineup.
James Anderson’s injury added to England’s troubles, and they didn’t decide to play against India!
The list includes players such as Shreyas Ayer and Venkatesh Ayer, along with Indian wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant. Pant scored just 58 points in 5 matches against South Africa with an average of 14.50. Throughout the series, the captain’s burden of hitting Pant is clearly visible. Former cricketers have even commented on Pant saying the World Cup is undecided, even though the coach has told him part of the team’s future plan.
On the other hand, if we talk about Shreyas Iyer, in the absence of Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav, he had a great opportunity to cement his place in this series. But Iyer also managed only 94 points with an average of 23.50 during the series. With Kohli going to racket third in the World Cup squad, there will be a battle between Suryakumar and Ayer for fourth place. Ayer missed a golden opportunity by not scoring against South Africa.
Big news! Pomrah will be in front of Kohli Rohit, before the training match, these four Indian players grabbed the hands of the opponent team; I know why
Venkatesh Ayer was seen as his replacement when Hardik Pandya was injured, but with Team India Pandya back in action, Ayer’s card appears to be cut. Despite a disappointing performance at the IPL 2022, Venkatesh secured a place in the team, but strayed from playing the 11th. He will have to see if he will get a chance to play against Ireland.
Apart from these, Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Yadav and Washington Sundar are also three of those players who can get a place in the World Cup team, but due to injury, these players are starting to run out of the team. If Chahar, Kuldeep and Sundar can’t get back into the team after recovering soon, then those three players’ cards can also be cut.
