When the world cup squad of Team India was announced, and the list of the 15 players came up we missed some of the names from it. They were playing quite well, but weren’t selected for the WC2019. The selector of the Indian National Cricket Team MSK Prasad had said that the form of player in the Indian Premier League has not been considered. That is where we think that the selectors would have made a mistake as the world cup is just after the IPL, and form matters a lot for the player to perform well. It is not like the batsman or the bowler had performed excellently well a long time back so they should be placed in the squad.
The form of the player matters the most actually, if the player is not in form then all of their skills are going to fail in the game. The selectors considered the performance of the Indian players before the IPL 2019 started and that happened a few months before. The few months can be a crucial period for any of the batsmen as they can either get in form or lose it in that particular time. The squad announced of the Indian team is: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Vijay Shankar, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami.
Here in the list you can definitely see a few players missing who are doing great in the Indian Premier League. The fine example is Rishabh Pant as he is playing outstandingly well in the season. Yesterday, we saw him take Delhi Capitals to the playoffs with his 49 off 21 balls with 2 fours and 5 sixes. The player in his full form, and the league could have been used as a blessing in disguise for the selectors as it is just before the world cup. We do know that the twenty-twenty game is a lot different than the ODIs but the form of a player is the factor which matters the most. Now, we all are waiting for the IPL to end, and the world cup to start so that we can support the nation together.
