The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had revealed the 15-member Indian squad for the 2021 T20 World Cup 2021 tournament on September 8. Although India had announced the Indian Squad for the upcoming 20121 T20 World Cup a few weeks ago, there have been talks about it upto this very date. While the squad does look good on paper.
There were a few queries and question marks raised over that squad. Several spots were questioned as a lot of deserving players missed the cut. A few players like Ravichandran Ashwin, Varun Chakravarthy, and Axar Patel have rather unexpectedly made it to the Indian squad. On the other hand, several regular names such as Yuzvendra Chahal and Shikhar Dhawan have been dropped from the squad. Even a few players on their reserves were good enough to make it to the Indian squad.
However, teams can still make changes to their squad till October 10th and with the Indian Premier League taking place between September & October, there is the possibility that some players might make a comeback to the Indian squad. Today we shall be taking a look at 3 changes that can happen in Indian Squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
Here are the 3 changes in the Indian Squad that can happen before the final submission
1) Shreyas Iyer Replacing Ishan Kishan:
Shreyas Iyer is one of the most consistent middle order batsman for India in the last few years. He has been an asset to the Indian squad. As a matter of fact, he has made a superb comeback in the IPL as he already has 2 40+ scores to his name including a player of the match award. Ishan Kishan on the other hand has been woefully out of form.
He has barely been able to score any runs in the ongoing IPL 2021 and hasn’t been at his best. Considering the fact that Iyer has been the regular number 4 in the Indian squad before his injury, one shouldn’t be surprised if he replaces Ishan Kishan in the Indian squad for the T20 WC.

2) Deepak Chahar Replacing Axar Patel:
Deepak Chahar has been one of India’s best new ball bowlers of late. His ability to swing the new ball is a handy asset which can be very handy for his team. He has been in superb form of late as well with the Chennai Super Kings. Even when he doesn’t pick wickets, he controls the run flow and gives his captain an economical spell.
Although Axar Patel on the other hand hasn’t been having a bad form, it makes absolutely zero sense to have him in the squad with India already having 4 spinner in the Indian squad. The Indian squad thus has 5 spinners and hence, the addition of Deepak Chahar it will make a perfect balance between Fast bowlers and spinners, and with already lot of spin options in the Indian Squad.

3) Yuzvendra Chahal Replacing Rahul Chahar:
Yuzvendra Chahal has been one of the best Indian bowlers in the shortest format of the game. His ability to pick wickets at regular intervals as well as to get them in the middle overs is nothing but gold. It came as a surprise when he was dropped from the Indian squad considering his overall records and stats. Rahul Chahar on the other hand has been impressive without a doubt, but is still inexperience.
It would be better if an experienced spinner like Chahal is in the squad instead of a newbie who’d be playing his first ICC trophy. Beside, Chahal has been in sensational form in the ongoing IPL. Add to that his amazing record in UAE where he has won four player of the match awards in the last 2 IPL seasons in those conditions. The T20 WC will be held in UAE and thus, Chahal should be drafted into the Indian squad for the T20 WC.
