3 Indian Players Who Can Be Dropped From The T20 World Cup 2021 Squad. The highly anticipated T20 World Cup 2021 is just around the corner and the fans can’t wait for the action to unfold. All the teams have announced their 15-man squads for the tournament. For the unversed, the last T20 World Cup was held back in 2016. West Indies lifted the title and became the first side to win the T20 World Cup title twice in the history of the competition. 

The Indian team won the inaugural T20 World Cup title in 2007 after beating Pakistan by 5 runs in the final. However, the Men in Blue have been searching for their second T20 World Cup title since. Virat Kohli-led Indian Team announced their 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup on 8th September 2021.

The teams are allowed to make changes to their squad until 10th October 2021. Given the fact that not all the players mentioned in the squad are doing well in the ongoing IPL 2021, one could see a few changes taking place before the aforementioned date. On that note, here’s a look at three players who could be dropped from India’s 2021 World Cup squad.

Rahul Chahar made headlines on the day India’s squad for the T20 World Cup was announced as he was included ahead of Yuzvendra Chahal in the 15-member list. Surprisingly, Yuzvendra Chahal, who was India’s first-choice spinner till recently, was dropped from the squad. 

Rahul Chahar was sensational in the IPL 2020 and also during the first leg of IPL 2021. He was Mumbai Indians’ wrecker in chief in the first half of IPL 2021. However, the 22-year old hasn’t been able to replicate the same form in the second leg of the tournament in UAE. In 4 matches played in UAE this season, Chahar has only managed to pick two wickets. 

At the same time, Yuzvendra Chahal has made a drastic improvement to his game in the ongoing leg of IPL 2021. In 6 games, he has managed to pick 11 wickets and had also exhibited stellar performances during India’s tour of Sri Lanka. Considering both the cases, the selectors might replace Rahul Chahar with Yuzvendra Chahal in the T20 World Cup squad.
