The Board of Management for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday introduced the one change in India’s squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup, with Shardul Thakur changing Axar Patel in the principle staff. Patel, a left-arm off-spinner, has now joined Shreyas Iyer and Deepak Chahar within the reserves.

Shardul Thakur’s addition is being seen as a backup for all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who hasn’t bowled in months and has been suffering from fixed health points. The Chennai Tremendous Kings (CSK) all-rounder, alternatively, has been at his finest within the ongoing IPL 2021, having already grabbed 18 wickets at a median of 27.17. His batting capacity is now past suspicion after the latest India-England Check collection as properly.

In the meantime, Axar Patel appears to have gotten the ax as a result of he had little probability of stepping into the taking part in XI with Ravindra Jadeja additionally obtainable within the staff.

The next are the very best reactions:

In case you suppose Shardul is definitely a again up for Hardik. With Jaddu certainly there Axar could not have made the primary staff. Explains the decision.

BCCI doesn’t choose Lord Shardul. He selects himself.

@BCCI so Dhoni began doing his work. DC participant out, CSK participant in. #RIPCricket

Replacing Axar with Shardul a bad call. If it had to be done, it had to be done with Chahar or Ashwin. Can understand why Ashwin is there because there’s no other off spinner.But Axar was the superior spinner. Maybe second best after Varun. Disappointing call IMO. twitter.com/gurkiratsgill/…

Does Yuzvendra Chahal warrant a spot within the Indian staff?

Yuzvendra Chahal’s absence is being questioned due to his beautiful kind for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) within the IPL 2021. The 31-year-old averaged 20.78 for his 18 wickets this season, continuously troubling batsmen within the center overs whereas additionally preserving the financial system fee in test at 7.06.

In the meantime Rahul Chahar, who was a part of the preliminary squad and has retained his place, misplaced his kind within the second half of the IPL season. He picked up simply two wickets in 4 video games within the UAE and was quickly dropped from the Mumbai Indians’ (MI) staff as properly. It is going to be attention-grabbing to see whether or not the teen could make a comeback and justify his backing on the largest stage.
