3. KL Rahul
KL Rahul is the first player who can replace Shreyas Iyer in the WTC squad. Although KL Rahul is part of the Test team, he is expected to be replaced by Shubman Gill as an opener in the WTC final. However, Rahul can still be part of the team and take a place in the middle order by replacing Iyer.
The right-handed batsman plays for the team in the middle order in ODIs and hence, he can take Iyer’s place in the middle. This will also allow the team to play Rahul with an additional wicketkeeper in the playing XI.
