ICC T20 World Cup 2021: 4 Players Who Can Replace Hardik Pandya In Team India. The Indian Cricket Team will go into the T20 World Cup 2021 as one of the favourites to lift the title. However, the BCCI is a little concerned about the fitness of a few Indian players in the squad.
Though the T20 World Cup 2021 is just around the corner one could still see a couple of changes taking place in the squad. India still have 5 days to send their final 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup 2o21 and reports have suggested that Hardik Pandya might be ruled out of the tournament.
Hardik Pandya was selected as the seaming all-rounder in the squad. However, the 28-year old hasn’t bowled for a while now. He didn’t bowl a single over for MI during the second leg of IPL 2021 in UAE. Besides, he didn’t look at his best with the bat either and often got out on low scores. Looking at his poor form and injury concerns, chances of high that he might get replaced.
On that note, here’s a look at four players who can replace Hardik Pandya in India’s squad for the T20 World Cup 2021.

Deepak Chahar could be a great pick as a replacement for Hardik Pandya in the squad. He gets the movement in the air early on in the power play which puts the opposition batsmen under pressure. Deepak Chahar has a knack for picking wickets early on and that makes him a serious contender for Hardik’s replacement in the squad.
His ability to contribute with the bat isn’t an unknown fact either. He certainly has in him to score runs for the team down the order and Chahar has shown that a number of times. His match-winning 69-run knock against Sri Lanka is a perfect example of that.
