With Ashwin’s return to the T20 team, these spinners have been cut short, Chahal is also hanging sword.


With less than 3 months left for the start of the T20 World Cup, Indian captain Rohit Sharma will have his sights set on selecting his best 15 players. According to media reports, the ICC has set September 15 as the last date for selecting the World Cup squad. Only a month is left. There is talk in cricket circles that the T20 World Cup squad picture will be almost clear from the Asia Cup 2022 squad, but the real problem will be the spin department. In fact, the Asia Cup is scheduled to be held in the UAE where India will also field three spinners. Maybe, but the T20 World Cup is in Australia and any team there will hesitate to field even two spinners. In such a situation, it remains to be seen how many spinners India places in the World Cup squad.

After the T20 World Cup 2021, Ashwin played only two T20Is against New Zealand. Since then, the off-spinner has been consistently running out of cricket’s shortest format, but the T20 series against the West Indies made a sudden comeback for Ashwin. In Chahal’s absence, Ashwin was replaced by Kuldeep. Bishnoi was definitely given a chance in the first match, but was also sidelined after that. Ashwin has played for the Windies so far, picking up 3 wickets in three T20Is. With Ashwin’s return, Kuldeep Yadav, Akshar Patel And spinners like Ravi Bishnoi have almost been left out of the T20 World Cup squad.

A hanging sword on Yuzvendra Chahal too

Chahal was also cut from the T20 World Cup 2021, replaced by Rahul Chahar. The sword is hanging on Chahal this year too. Indeed, Ashwin has the ability to bowl along with batting. A step forward is being told.

The Asia Cup is just a few days away and Rohit Sharma will be looking for his spinners on UAE soil. Jadeja’s place in the team is certain. In such a situation, Ashwin and Chahal will be fighting for the second spot. Chahal has been a consistent part of the team in 2022, having scored 12 this year. He took 15 wickets in the match with an economy of 7.12. Now it will be interesting to see which spinner Rohit will bet on.
