Hardik Pandya In World Cup T20 Squad Not As Allrounder

India squad includes Hardik Pandya in World Cup T20 purely as a batsman. It means he can play freely as a stroke player not as an all rounder. Off late his bowling is not too much impressive as India to pick top bowlers for the upcoming World Cup T20, starting from Oct 17. India to play their first World cup T20 match against Pakistan on Oct 24. On paper, the squad looks too good, but leaving top players can be a “shocking decision”.

India’s Squad:

  1. Virat Kohli (c),
  2. Rohit Sharma,
  3. KL Rahul,
  4. Suryakumar Yadav,
  5. Rishabh Pant (wk),
  6. Ishan Kishan (wk),
  7. Hardik Pandya,
  8. Ravindra Jadeja,
  9. Rahul Chahar,
  10. Ravichandran Ashwin,
  11. Axar Patel,
  12. Varun Chakravarthy,
  13. Jasprit Bumrah,
  14. Bhuvneshwar Kumar,
  15. Mohammad Shami

India’s Reserves: 

  1. Shreyas Iyer,
  2. Deepak Chahar,
  3. Shardul Thakur

Experts say that Shreyas Iyer or Suryakumar Yadav would be the best stroke players, who can perform. However, Shreyas Iyer finds his place in the reserves, but it’s interesting that either Hardik Pandya or Shreyas Iyer need to fill 6th or 7th batsman’s place. It means India have to play four genuine bowlers and one all rounder. It’s however, shocking to know that if Hardik Pandya will not be playing as an allrounder then it’s better to go with Shreyas Iyer. Ravindra Jadeja is already in the squad.

So, Jadeja can also perform too good with the ball. Well, the top players like Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar, and Shardul Thakur are in the reserves. This means India needs to drop Hardik Pandya from the playing 11. So, why pick him in the 15 player squad?

Another question is: Since Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant can play big shots in support of top players including Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan, then Why Hardik Pandya in World Cup T20 Squad? Leaving Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar, and Shardul Thakur isn’t fair too. Also Mohammed Siraj not picked. It’s some or a bit of early to say Virat Kohli would find tough to captain these players to perform in every match. So, it’s a bit of luck this time India needs badly to win World Cup T20.
