The cricketing action will continue for the Team India as they will now set off for a full-fledged series in the Caribbean. The tour will commence with a 3-match T20I series and it is a great opportunity for the side to begin their preparations for the next year’s T20 World Cup to be played Down Under. A total of 16 teams will be participating in the event with India taking on South Africa in their opening tie.
Men in Blue will again be the hot favourites to lift the title as the high profile T20 league, Indian Premier League (IPL) has produced quality talent for them over the years. The IPL has served its purpose of carving out new gems for the Indian team. Most of them have gone on to represent India in bilateral series but certain individuals deserve the ICC event tickets as well. The T20 World Cup 2020 will be the perfect platform for them to showcase their skills.
Here is the list of IPL team-wise player who deserves to be a part of the T20 World Cup:
1. Mumbai Indians – Krunal Pandya:
The Mumbai franchise has won two titles in their last three sojourns and some of the credit should go to their winning combination of Pandya brothers. Especially Krunal Pandya who has occasionally outplayed the international stars of the side with his limited skill set.
So far, the all-rounder has scaled 40 wickets at a striking economy rate of 7.1 in 55 IPL ties. His impressive outings got him the ticket to T20Is where he has scalped 11 wickets in as many games. Though the senior Pandya is to yet to establish himself in the Blue team he can be a match-winner if enough opportunities are presented to him.
Along with his left-arm spinners, he can also provide the team with required batting depth as he was the leading run-getter for Baroda in the 2018-19 Vijay Hazare Trophy. Krunal has a knack of performing well in big games and the 2017 IPL final is the prime example where he scored a quickfire 47 in a low scoring tie. He can prove to be a utility player for the team in the T20 challenge.
