T20 World Cup 2021 will be played in October-November.
With the conclusion of the third T20I against Sri Lanka on July 29 (Thursday), the Indian team played their last international match in limited-overs cricket before the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021. While most of the core players were unavailable for this tour due to the upcoming Test series against England, BCCI selected a team led by Shikhar Dhawan with some fresh faces for the recently concluded Sri Lanka tour.
The ODI and T20I series were the only chance for few players to make an impact and gain the attention of selectors. In this article, let us look at the 3 players who made an impact and might get a chance to play T20 World Cup this year.
3 lesser-experienced Indians who might get a chance in T20 World Cup 2021
1. Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav is not a new name among Indian T20 fans, playing for Mumbai Indians he impressed the selectors with his brilliant performances and got the national T20I cap in the England series. He played at number 3 in the last two T20Is against England and made 57 off 31 and 32 off 17.
The above-mentioned performances resulted in his selection in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. While he played at number three in England series, against Sri Lanka he played at number 5 in the three ODIs and his scores were 31* off 20, 53 off 44, and 40 off 37 respectively, and was awarded the player of the series.
Surya showed his versatility in the ODI series playing at number 5 and continued his red hot form in the only T20I he played with the score of 50 off 34. He might have cemented his place in the squad for the T20 World Cup 2021 with his explosive performances in this tour.
