Meanwhile, former India pacer Ajit Agarkar feels the selectors should not make any change in the T20 World Cup squad regardless of some gamers going by way of a lean patch forward of the showpiece occasion in UAE.
“In my opinion, once you have picked the squad for the World Cup — barring injury — I don’t think you should make any changes. Yes, there are guys at the moment who are not in their great form, but it only takes one innings — whether it’s bowling or batting — to change that form around, and that could still happen before the end of the IPL,” Agarkar stated on Star Sports present Cricket Connected.
The former Indian cricketer desires the selector to persist with the squad as just one inning (in IPL 2021) is required for a participant to regain the shape.
“So, if you think that’s the best 15 you’ve picked going to the World Cup, my personal opinion, I would stick with it, because you gotta show faith in people even when things are not looking so good, because things can turn around very quickly,” stated Agarkar.
India squad: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (VC), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Chahar, Varun, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishan Kishan.
