T20 World cup squad 2021: Teams and Squads

Youngest of the three international formats, T20Is have gained massive popularity over the years. The only certain thing is this format is uncertainty.  After all, momentum rides on a rollercoaster in this version of the game. The course of the game can change within a span of few deliveries. Hence, teams don’t have the liberty to relax down at any stage of the game.

With T20 becoming fan-favourite format worldwide, the T20 World Cup is considered nothing short of a festive event by many. This year’s T20 World Cup is taking place in UAE and Oman with as many as 16 teams contesting for the title. While the top eight teams were already slotted in the Super 12 stage, the other eight teams are to lock horns in a preliminary round to determine the other four places in the playoffs.

For the unversed, this is the seventh edition of the T20 World Cup. The past six editions also provided mind-boggling entertainment to the fans. While stalwarts like Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle played several sensational knocks, wicket-taking machines like Umar Gul and Imran Tahir shone in the bowling department. With the past seasons being so electrifying, cricket fans worldwide are excited for T20 World Cup 201.

Meanwhile, national selectors of the participating team had the onus of selecting a formidable squad for the gala competition. After all, stakes in the competition are incredibly high. Hence, making the best use of the resources was a must for all boards. Notably, several boards had also made changes in the team after announcing the squad initially.
