5 cricketers who might face a long-term axe after their repeated failures in T20Is

Of late these cricketers have not been big contributors of their respective sides so they might find themselves out of the equation.

The Men in Green is sitting comfortably at the top of the mountain in the slam-bang version of the game. They have won 8 out of their last 10 bilateral series. More importantly, the team is full of youngsters who have quickly adjusted to their roles in the senior team. Still, they are some flaws that need to be ironed out before the T20 championship in Down Under.

Although the team has enjoyed the services of quality fast-bowlers in the side most of them are new to the international scene. So they might want someone like Hasan Ali to regain his touch. With his wicket-taking abilities, the speedster showed his class in the 2017 Champions trophy. Then he took his game to the next level and became the leader of the pack.

Suddenly his form dipped after the 2018 Asia Cup and since then he has blown hot and cold in the national colors. He was even dropped from the playing XI in the recent 50 overs World Cup. He will suffer the same fate in the T20Is if he doesn’t produce game-changing spells very soon. In his last 3 series, Ali has conceded runs at an economy rate of 10.5. For a strike-bowler, even his wicket column is uninspiring with 12 scalps in his last 12 outings.
