There are two things that are going through a sublime form at the moment. One, unfortunately, is the weather of the United Kingdom. The second, though, is the form of the Indian cricket team. Remaining unbeaten after three games in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup, the Indian team is looking like a closely knit family. However, it will be foolish to think that this is a family that won’t make any changes.
Right after the World Cup, the men in blue will take on the Windies for three T20Is, as many ODIs and two Tests, which will also mark the start of the World Test Championship. The West Indies squad might lose some of its current firepower after the World Cup. Also, given the tiring schedule, the Indian cricketers have to deal with, a few tweaks to the side must be expected. Hence, quite a few debuts might be there on the cards, Let us have a look who might get a call-up for the national team after the World Cup:
1. Rahul Chahar
Even a few months ago, Rahul Chahar was playing second fiddle to Mayank Markande as the next mystery spinner in the Indian spin cabinet. However, the past few months have been quite fruitful for the teenager from Bharatpur, Rajasthan. He was exceptional for the Indian Premier League 2019 champions Mumbai Indians. In the 13 matches he played, Chahar picked up as many wickets.
The most impressive thing about his IPL 2019 performance was the economy rate which was well under 7 runs per over. Owing to his great run of form, Chahar got an opportunity to represent India A in the 2-match Test series against Sri Lanka A. With 14 wickets in those 2 matches, the leggie was the highest wicket-taker of the series, claiming almost twice the number of wickets of his nearest competitor.
