1. Axar Patel

Axar Patel is the first player on this list. Patel is also a spin all-rounder like Ravindra Jadeja. He was also picked to replace Jadeja midway during Asia Cup 2022. However, the left-arm spinner only played 1 match in which he remained wicketless and did not get a chance to bat.

In the previous series against West Indies and Zimbabwe, Axar Patel gave an impressive performance. He also played a match-winning knock in an ODI against West Indies. Hence, he might be a good option to replace Ravindra Jadeja in the T20 World Cup squad.

2. Deepak Hooda

Deepak Hooda is another player on this list. Hooda is also a spin all-rounder. After making his T20I debut this year, the right-handed batsman has played many T20I games for the team and also executed brilliant performances. For instance, his century against Ireland in T20I game showed a glimpse of his strength with the bat.

During the Asia Cup 2022, Hooda bowled in just 1 game in which he also picked 1 wicket in his only over. Moreover, Hooda is also a lower-order batter like Ravindra Jadeja. Hence, he will be a good option to replace Jadeja in the tournament.

Ravichandran Ashwin is another player on this list. Like Ravindra Jadeja, Ashwin is also a spin all-rounder. In the recent Asia Cup 2022, the right-arm spinner played 2 games. He scored unbeaten 15 runs in one game off 7 balls.

He also picked 2 wickets at an average of 29.50 and an economy of 7.37.  Ashwin will also be a good option to replace Jadeja in T20 World Cup as he can also contribute with both bat and ball. In addition, Ashwin is a stronger spinner than Jadeja.
