BCCI: These players need more match practice ahead of the T20 World cup 2021

A senior BCCI official, on conditions of anonymity, was quoted as saying on Cricket.com.

“Yes, there won’t be too many net sessions once the tournament starts. The national selectors feel that all the spinners especially would benefit if they go back and play Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy for their respective states. They need match practice,”

Only Venkatesh Iyer and Ahmed got the chance to play in IPL. Meanwhile, others fought to get the small chances. Ahmed polished his abilities for the Royal Challengers Bangalore and was one of the surprise factor. While Iyer was playing for the two-time champion Kolkata Knight Riders. He scored 4 consecutive fifties.

Sharma and Gowtham were members of the Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021. But they didn’t get enough playing time because to the presence of several famous Indian stars.


Meanwhile, Team India will begin their World Cup campaign against Pakistan on Sunday, October 24 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The Men in Blue have always come out on top in their previous meetings in the major event. The last time they met in a T20 World Cup match was in Kolkata’s Eden Gardens in 2016.

After spectacular wins over England and Australia in the warm-ups, India, captained by Virat Kohli, must be full of confidence. In the T20I format, this is Kohli’s final tournament as Team India’s captain. He had previously decided to step down as captain of the RCB in the IPL. Apart from Pakistan, India will also participate.
