10. Rubel Hossain
Bangladesh’s sixth-highest wicket-tacker in T20Is but when it comes to the upcoming mega event he has been made to feel dejected. Although Rubel will travel to the UAE as a reserve he certainly would have become a requirement if the pitches are flat.
9. Angelo Mathews
The Sri Lankan board has also finally announced its squad for World T20 which surprisingly has left Angelo Mathews. Although the all-rounder had made his last international appearance in May 2021, at least for the mega event he should have been considered.
8. Fakhar Zaman
In fact with the infusion of some young players, Fakhar now further seems to have taken a fall in the pecking order. Also, since his floating experiment didn’t enjoy a grand success, the selectors have decided to brim the overall batting department with some proper middle-order batting explosives.
7. Colin Munro
The southpaw was also one of the established members of the team and perhaps upholds the best strike rate (156.44) amongst all NZ batters who have played a minimum of 50 T20Is. However, sadly after playing his last T20I game against India in February 2020, Munro has so far been snagged from the T20I proceedings.
6. Imran Tahir
In a true sense, he’s also a genuine wicket-taking bowler who has turned many games with his valorous bowling. All in all, at least by the match condition standards, Imran Tahir would have been an electrifying add to SA’s overall squad.
5. Faf du Plessis
The cricketer had also vigorously established himself as a T20 freelancer to further elevate his T20 batting skills. However, sadly despite being in a top-notch form, the SA selectors have rejected the veteran for the T20 World Cup.
4. Sarfaraz Ahmed
No doubt Pakistan does need some explosive batters in the middle-order but Sarfaraz Ahmed could have been a strong backup for anyone in the batting department. Overall, even his batting game thus seems to be very adaptive especially when the spinners come to the fore.
3. Shoaib Malik
The former Pakistani skipper could have become a multi-utility player who could have batted anywhere but unfortunately, fans have already viewed him last in international cricket.
2. Shikhar Dhawan
Despite reinventing himself in the shortest format, Shikhar Dhawan has eventually been unable to bag the ticket for the mega event. From 2018 onwards, the southpaw’s batting had received a massive elevation but sadly it won’t be now seen in the tournament.
1. Yuzvendra Chahal
There’s no doubt that Yuzi Chahal’s omission is as big as the comeback of veteran Ravi Ashwin or the arrival of MS Dhoni as a mentor. For the past four years, the leg-spinner has been team India’s chief spinner but unfortunately, he has been let go for the mega event.
