The senior spinner Yusvendra Chahal was excluded from the T20 World Cup. The team leader may no longer be ready for such experiments. Varun Chakraborty and Rahul Chahar, who replaced Chahal on the team, did not take a single wicket in the World Cup. Chahal was dropped from the squad for the game against the Kiwis.

Pandya out now?
Hardik Pandya was India’s biggest speaker on the World Cup squad. Many veterans have asked why the player who is in poor shape with no injury was included. Pandya also disrupted the team balance. The decision to include Venkatesh Iyer against the Kiwis is in response to Pandya. As a batsman, Pandya will not be able to stay with the team for long.

The arrival of Venkatesh Iyer
Venkatesh Iyer is the key player India will develop ahead of the next World Cup. Hopefully Venkatesh will work wonders in all-round excellence. The pioneering player from IPL 2021 is also in shine in local cricket. The fact that Venkatesh overtook Prithviraj Shah and Shubhman Gill is evidence of its importance.
