Gautam Gambhir World Cup Team: Shardul and Iyer left out of World Cup team, former opener selected 15-member squad!


New Delhi: The last date to announce the squad for the ICC ODI World Cup is 5 September. India has not announced its team yet. Although the discussion on this is in full swing. It is expected that the 15-member squad for the World Cup will be announced soon. However, before that, during the Asia Cup, Gautam Gambhir, a member of the commentary panel on Star Sports and former captain of Team India, has selected his probable team.

There are not two surprising names in this team of Gautam Gambhir. He has not given place to all-rounder Shardul Thakur and middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer in the 15-member squad. Both Shardul and Iyer are playing for Team India in the Asia Cup.

Gambhir has included the famous pacer Krishna in the team in place of Shardul Thakur. Gambhir believes that he can bowl better than Shardul on Indian pitches while Shardul will prove to be weak against him.

Iyer’s absence from Gambhir’s team is also surprising. Gambhir has replaced Iyer with Suryakumar Yadav. He believes that Suryakumar Yadav can help the team out of trouble by batting fast in the lower order.

Gambhir has a total of three spin all-rounders in this team. Akshar Patel, Ravindra Jadeja and Sundar. Gambhir then reasoned that Rohit Sharma himself wanted his batting line-up to be bigger in the World Cup so that players in the lower order could bat if required.

At the same time, he has selected Ishaan Kishan and KL Rahul as wicketkeepers. Rahul has also been selected for the Asia Cup but is not available for the first two matches. In such a situation, Rahul’s return after injury directly in a tournament like World Cup is quite surprising.

Gautam Gambhir’s team for the World Cup- Rohit Sharma (captain), Hardik Pandya (vice-captain), Virat Kohli, KL Rahul (wicketkeeper), Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), Shubman Gill, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Aksar Patel, Suryakumar Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, famous Krishna, Kuldeep Yadav and Mohd. Siraj.
