- India fast bowler Zaheer Khan is persuaded his pick for the T20 World Cup.
- “I will open with KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. Then, Virat and Surya will follow them.
The T20 World Cup is under 90 days away; however, the conversation regarding what India’s creation will be for the ICC worldwide occasion has effectively acquired force. With India having played its last arrangement of T20I matches before the World Cup, the IPL is all that remaining parts among now and the determination of their World Cup crew.
Remembering this, previous India fast bowler Zaheer Khan is persuaded his pick for the T20 World Cup. But, shockingly, in Zaheer’s crew, left-gave batsman Shikhar Dhawan discovered no spot as he proceeded with KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma as openers, trailed by Virat Kohli at No. 3 and Suryakumar Yadav at No. 4.
“I will open with KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma. Then, Virat and Surya will follow them. I realize Virat has offered the expression that he needs to open the innings.
But, in any case, I would say that Virat just opens if Hardik isn’t accessible to bowl. In that situation, you can forfeit one batsman and get an additional bowler,” Zaheer said on Cricbuzz.
To the extent the bowling blend goes, given how the T20 World Cup will be played in Oman and the UAE, Zaheer pushed on the significance of twist. While Zaheer tossed his weight behind Yuzvendra Chahal, he didn’t discover a spot for chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav. He rather felt that secret spinner Varun Chakravarty could be a convenient expansion.
“I have Chahal as the lead leg spinner and went in with Rahul Chahar as his reinforcement. In this organization, we have seen that leg spinner is a particularly critical factor. Chakravarthy/Sundar will be the spinners who will bowl with the new ball.
Assuming you need that secret component, you can pick Chakravarthy, yet else, you can go in with Sundar too,” said Zaheer Khan
