1. Ishan Kishan Ahead Of Shreyas Iyer
Shreyas Iyer was selected as a reserve player in the squad while Ishant Kishan was selected in the squad. Shreyas Iyer is a far more experienced player than Ishan Kishan in the T20Is for India.
However, while Shreyas Iyer has not played an international or competitive game since March this year, Ishan Kishan played in IPL 2021 first leg and also played during Sri Lanka’s tour of India. Ishan Kishan also emerges as a secondary option for wicketkeeper-batsman in the squad.
