The T20 World Cup 2021 is the next big ICC event this year after the World Test Championship final. New Zealand won the inaugural edition of the championship by beating India in the final. India have lost three ICC knockout games since 2017. They lost the final of the Champions Trophy, followed by the 2019 World Cup semi-final and recently the WTC final.
In the meantime, with the T20 World Cup coming up, India have a big pool of players to choose from. Ahead of the mega event many of these players have been selected in the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka, which will follow a three-match ODI series as well. The three T20Is will be played between July 13-18, while the ODIs will follow between July 21-25. The series thus is one where many players would be required to prove their potential for a ticket to the T20 World Cup 2021.
In this article, we take a look at five players who might not get included in the T20 World Cup squad for the event later this year after the Sri Lanka tour.
