India Squad For T20 World Cup 2021: 3 Players For Whom This Might Prove To Be The Last World Cup. The 15 members Indian squad for the T20 Worldcup 2021 was announced by the BCCI yesterday and there were a lot of interesting names that made the cut into the squad. The big news coming up was the mentorship given to legendary MS Dhoni for this T20 World Cup 2021 alone and it has excited the fans already in the country.
Apart from that, the surprising names that were included were the return of R Ashwin to the limited-overs format after three years and the inclusion of Axar Patel over Krunal Pandya as the backup all-rounder. Yuzvendra Chahal missed out which was very surprising as well and Rahul Chahar’s current form got the nod ahead of the leggie.

R Ashwin has been one of the best spinners India has ever had in the red-ball format however, his white-ball numbers have not been bad either and he was dropped from the limited-overs set up after the 2017 champions trophy. His wicket-taking abilities were questioned and eventually, Kuldeep and Chahal were preferred ahead of someone like Ashwin.
But with Washington Sundar injured at the moment, it was an obvious choice for India to go in with Ashwin as there arent many competitors as off-spinners in the country. Ashwin’s last few IPL performances have been so good and he has bowled really well in the IPL for Delhi Capitals and before that, the Punjab Kings. He deserved a place in the squad, but at 34 years, this might be the last Worldcup opportunity.
