10 . Chetan Sakariya
The pacer also in his seven IPL games did perform well by bagging 7 seven wickets at a decent economy of 8.2.However, with Sakariya being a left-arm seam proposition, the pacer might get eluded merely because of someone like a T Natarajan already being ahead of him in terms of getting picked as a left-arm seamer.2.
9. Kuldeep Yadav
Now coming in regards to Kuldeep Yadav’s T20 selection, barely the leg-spinner has played the shortest format especially with his last T20I game being well played before the pandemic in 2020. Because of his recent malfunction, even his IPL side KKR had made him a mere bench warmer in IPL 2021 perhaps casting his peer Varun Chakravarthy as a premier spinner.
8. Navdeep Saini
Overall, while the likes of Bhuvi and Bumrah will definitely cast themselves as the team’s two premier pacers, other speedsters like Mohammad Shami, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar and T Natarajan will already contest for the possible two slots in the overall 15-member squad. Hence, someone like Navdeep Saini barely seems to be receiving a T20 World Cup ticket.
7. Nitish Rana
Nitish Rana’s overall proposition of being a floater left-handed batsman along with someone who can bowl some part-time spin does make him an exciting choice in regards to his potential selection. At present Rana only being perceived as a proper middle or lower-middle-order batsman, the cricketer might need to stand in the long overloaded queue for his potential selection.
6. Krishnappa Gowtham
While K Gowtham is yet to unleash himself in international cricket, the all-rounder without evincing his overall gameplay will surely miss out on the mega event. Barely the cricketer has just played an ODI game and perhaps was seen as a bench-warmer even in the ongoing against Sri Lanka.
5. Krunal Pandya
Even in the all-rounder’s quota, both Hardik, Jadeja and Sundar will be given a first preference that eventually makes him slip away from the team. Hence, unless some injuries might pertain to lower middle-order batters, Krunal might unluckily miss the ticket for the upcoming World T20.
4. Axar Patel
Perhaps even if in case an opening occurs then someone like a Washington Sundar and even maybe Krunal Pandya might be ahead of Axar in the pecking order. Also, with the all-rounder barely now exhibiting his batting skills at the park, the 27-year old unfortunately now is miles away from his possible T20 selection.
3. Sanju Samson
While Sanju Samson on his given day can trounce over any bowling attack, his current chances of making it into the T20 World Cup squad are largely less. Although the cricketer can bat anywhere in the top five along with his wicket-keeping talent, Samson might still miss the bus merely because of the jam-packed middle-order.
2. Prithvi Shaw
Even if Prithvi Shaw does get selected for the final 20 or 25 men squad for the 2021 World T20, the 21-year old might be picked only as a reserve. Maybe, only if either Shikhar Dhawan or KL Rahul endures a dreadful IPL, then the cricketer might receive a realistic outside chance.
1. Manish Pandey
Even in terms of the backup, the left-hand proposition of Ishan Kishan will definitely take over the precedence as the wicket-keeper batsman can dwell himself both at the top as well in the middle-order. Hence, even if Manish Pandey does bat out of his skin in the remainder of the IPL, unfortunately, he will surely miss the bus for the pinnacle event.
