T20 World Cup 2021 India Squad

The BCCI is meeting today to choose the 15-man squad for the showpiece event, which will begin next month in the United Arab Emirates. The tournament was originally slated to take place in India, but it was moved to Oman (qualifiers) and the United Arab Emirates due to the monsoon season and the country's coronavirus crisis. Apart from two notable omissions, Gavaskar's squad primarily consists of players who would be expected to be part of the team. Virat Kohli leads the team, which also includes Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, and Jasprit Bumrah.

In July, Dhawan was selected captain of India's limited-overs side for the upcoming tour to Sri Lanka. Shreyas Iyer, on the other hand, has been out of action since March this year due to a shoulder injury and is slated to return in the second part of the IPL 2021, which will also be contested in the United Arab Emirates. Suryakumar Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar (subject to fitness) and Shardul Thakur have been named in Gavaskar's team.

The cricketer-turned-commentator revealed to Sports Tak about why he chose Krunal, “He's an all-rounder, a highly experienced player, has played extremely well in the IPL for the previous many years so he absolutely deserves a place”. He's left-handed, which is also a benefit." Jasprit Bumrah leads the bowling attack, which also includes Mohammed Shami and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Yuzvendra Chahal is the lone specialist spinner, with Kuldeep Yadav missing out. 

India will play their T20 World Cup match against Pakistan on October 24.
