Fans on Twitter rejoice at Shardul Thakur’s addition in India’s squad

The Board of Management for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday introduced the one change in India’s squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup, with Shardul Thakur changing Axar Patel in the primary group. Patel, a left-arm off-spinner, has now joined Shreyas Iyer and Deepak Chahar within the reserves.

Shardul Thakur’s addition is being seen as a backup for all-rounder Hardik Pandya, who hasn’t bowled in months and has been stricken by fixed health points. The Chennai Tremendous Kings (CSK) all-rounder, then again, has been at his finest within the ongoing IPL 2021, having already grabbed 18 wickets at a mean of 27.17. His batting potential is now past suspicion after the current India-England Check sequence as effectively.

In the meantime, Axar Patel appears to have gotten the ax as a result of he had little likelihood of moving into the enjoying XI with Ravindra Jadeja additionally obtainable within the group. It is nonetheless unlucky for the Delhi Capitals (DC) all-rounder as he’s in sensible type – 15 wickets in IPL 2021 at a mean of 18.27 and an economic system price of 6.52.

Reacting to the announcement, whereas most followers rejoiced on the inclusion of their beloved ‘Lord’ Shardul Thakur (all with hilarious memes), some additionally questioned the group’s persistence with Ravichandran Ashwin and the absence of Yuzvendra Chahal regardless of the duo’s current contrasting types. The next are one of the best reactions:

In case you suppose Shardul is definitely a again up for Hardik. With Jaddu absolutely there Axar could not have made the primary group. Explains the decision.

BCCI doesn’t choose Lord Shardul. He selects himself.

@BCCI so Dhoni began doing his work. DC participant out, CSK participant in. #RIPCricket

Replacing Axar with Shardul a bad call. If it had to be done, it had to be done with Chahar or Ashwin. Can understand why Ashwin is there because there’s no other off spinner.But Axar was the superior spinner. Maybe second best after Varun. Disappointing call IMO.…

Does Yuzvendra Chahal warrant a spot within the Indian group?

Yuzvendra Chahal’s absence is being questioned due to his gorgeous type for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) within the IPL 2021. The 31-year-old averaged 20.78 for his 18 wickets this season, continuously troubling batsmen within the center overs whereas additionally retaining the economic system price in verify at 7.06.

In the meantime Rahul Chahar, who was a part of the preliminary squad and has retained his place, misplaced his type within the second half of the IPL season. He picked up simply two wickets in 4 video games within the UAE and was quickly dropped from the Mumbai Indians’ (MI) group as effectively. It will likely be attention-grabbing to see whether or not the teen could make a comeback and justify his backing on the largest stage.
