India Squad For T20 World Cup 2021: 3 Players Who Were Selected On The Basis Of Their IPL 2021 Performance. The Indian squad for the T20 World cup 2021 was announced yesterday by the BCCI and the performances from IPL have also been considered during the selection. Three reserves were also announced including the 15 member squad and there was no place for the regulars like Shikhar Dhawan and Yuvzendra Chahal considering the balance of the side.
Meanwhile, Ravichandran Ashwin’s recent performances in the IPL over the last two years earned him a recall into the limited-overs setup for India after almost three years. Axar Patel was another name in the squad that was surprising as Krunal Pandya was expected to get the nod ahead of him. Here are 3 players who were selected on the basis of their IPL 2021 performance.

Suryakumar Yadav recently made his T20 international debut for India in the home series against England and he was impressive from the start of his international career. The right-hander has been one of the consistent performers in the IPL circuit and he definitely earned a place in the Indian squad. He scored 173 runs in the 7 games he played in IPL 2021 and was the second-highest run-getter from the franchise which played in tough spin conditions.
Suryakumar Yadav also finished as the man of the series in the ODI series in Sri Lanka and his ability to take on the bowling from the word go is something extraordinary. He will play a big role for India in the future and in the T20 Worldcup for sure. He is a brilliant fielder as well and he brings a lot of value to the side. His IPL 2020 performance in UAE was good as well to be ignored.
