Who gets a World Cup slot?

With the T20 World Cup around the corner, multiple Indian players are in the race to seal a spot in India’s top 15.

Yuzvendra Chahal

Chahal has been sitting out for long as spinners like Kuldeep, Jadeja and Bishnoi take the stage. Chahal is an unlikely pick for India.

Ishan Kishan

Kishan’s chances of being included are also dim. As an opener, he competes with players like Rohit Sharma, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill.

Sanju Samson

Samson also may not tag along with the team. He failed to capitalise on his opportunity in the T20I against AFG and got a golden duck.

Ravichandran Ashwin

Veteran spinner Ashwin’s fitness has often been compared to the younger lot. The 37-year-old may not be in India’s World Cup squad.

Avesh Khan

While he was thought as a frontrunner, Avesh failed to impress against AFG. He took just 1 wicket in the 3rd T20I.

Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep is in competition with star Indian pacers like Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah – all with a great track record.

Shardul Thakur

Despite bowling in the 2023 World Cup, Shradul remains an unlikely pick for India. All-rounders like Jadeja and Pandya may be frontrunners.
