With two T20 World Cups scheduled for the next couple of years, team managements are looking to find the best possible 15 players for their squads. They might not necessarily be the best 15 players in the country and there will be certain slots that will depend upon combinations rather than quality.

The Indian team has tested about 25 players over the last couple of years, but only 15 of them can make it to the squad in the end and there might be a couple of others as reserve players. It will be quite harsh on those who don’t make it, but it is the sad reality.

The ongoing IPL will provide an opportunity to several players to either strengthen their claim or even fire themselves into the reckoning. This will obviously mean that there will be certain players who lose their place and might not end up making the squad. Let’s take a look at-

Yuzvendra Chahal established himself as one of the best-limited overs spinners in the world during the 2017-2019 period and formed an excellent partnership along with Kuldeep Yadav. However, his form declined a bit after that and as a result, he found himself in and out of the playing XI.

But he still managed to keep his place in the squad due to his IPL performances. However, constant failures in the Indian jersey have meant that his returns in the IPL might be overlooked and he could potentially be dropped from the team.

He was dropped from the playing XI during the last couple of T20Is against England as well. Chahal has continued his poor form into the IPL while the likes of Rahul Chahar and Varun Chakravarthy have started off quite well. If this continues, then he might find himself out of the squad for the tournament.
