The COVID-19 pandemic is looking unstoppable right now. With record-breaking cases every week, the BCCI has decided to suspend the annual T20 carnival, the Indian Premier League. Well, it is a nightmare for the fans.
Now, the main reason for suspending the IPL is the multiple cases of COVID across franchises. Firstly, it was the KKR camp that was under the radar because of COVID cases. Unfortunately, it was Varun Chakravarthy and Sandeep Warrier from the KKR camp who are infected by the virus.
Later on, there was news regarding some cases from the CSK camp, but it was the support staff that got infected. On the 4th of May, there was news related to COVID cases from SRH and DC camp. It was too much on the plate and hence IPL has been suspended.
But after 29 games, many players were able to make a name for themselves. Adding on, they have played better than few veterans of the game.
Here are 5 players who can enter, comeback, or debut in the T20 WC based on IPL 2021 performance:
5. Avesh Khan
Avesh Khan was a part of a strong India U19 team in 2016. He was a teammate of Rishabh Pant and that team went on to reach the finals of the tournament. After almost five years, the fourteenth edition of the IPL gave Khan a chance to redeem himself. Well, he was at his best.
Last year, Avesh was unable to get regular chances to represent the Delhi Capitals. He played only a single game and conceded 42 runs. As the Delhi Capitals had the pace duo of Rabada and Nortje, it was difficult for any bowler to replace them. For most of the season, he had to warm the benches.
But 2021 will be seen as the year that made Avesh Khan a popular name. In eight games, he picked 14 wickets. Till now, he has an impressive economy rate of 7.70 and a bowling average of 16.50. The key to his performance was his fitness. He has a great chance to make it to the Indian side during the T20 World Cup.
