It was a usual performance from the Indian team in a decider against Sri Lanka in the 3rd T20 international and the youngsters might have just lost their hopes of making it to the T20 Worldcup squad. Despite all that has been happening around Covid-19 and the regulars not being available, it was a great chance for the youngsters to make a strong case for themselves.
They might have to wait a long time to get another opportunity and they will certainly be under the radar. The positives from the series were Rahul Chahar, Varun Chakravarthy and only Suryakumar Yadav among the batsmen had consistent scores. Here are 5 Indian players whose spot for T20 Worldcup 2021 looks doubtful after the Sri Lanka series.
5 Indian Players Whose Spot For T20 World Cup 2021 Looks Doubtful After Sri Lanka Series:
Sanju Samson did not have the best of times in the T20 series against Sri Lanka and especially, he struggled to face the leggie Wanindu Hasaranga. He got off to a good start in the first T20 scoring a brisk 27 off 20 but was completely undone in the next two games.
In the second T20I, he could manage just 7 runs off 13 balls and he perished at a stage when India needed him the most. In the third T20I, he was again dismissed by Hasaranga for a duck and the chances for him to make it to the T20 Worldcup squad have become bleak at the moment.
