There are several players like these who due to various reasons, won’t be featuring in the upcoming T20 WC as well.

Shikhar Dhawan is arguably one of the best openers of this era. You wouldn’t find too many batters as impactful as well. The fact that the veteran was omitted from the Indian squad took everyone by surprise.

The Delhi opener has scored 1759 runs in 67 T20I games so far. His batting average and strike rate in this format are 27.92 and 126.36 respectively. This includes 11 fifties as well.

His experience would have been really handy in a marquee event like the T20 WC. Besides, he was superb in the recently concluded IPL 2021. Moreover, the opener was India’s captain in their last T20I series where he also scored the most number of runs in the series.
