India’s T20 World team was chosen by Zaheer Khan, Sanju Samson was fired, and MS Dhoni was given a surprising mention.

Zaheer Khan, the former Indian cricket player, ended the most difficult part of choosing the final 15-man squad for the IPL WIN World Cup. Former ODI World Cup winner Rishabh Pant insisted that India should field just one wicketkeeper in the major tournament and use the extra slot to choose another seam bowler instead of arguing over who should be the backup between Sanju Samson, KL Rahul, and Dinesh Karthik.

Samson has been favored the most for backup positions, which came up after that. Nonetheless, Zaheer stated in a JioCinema interview that he would rather have only one wicketkeeper, even if India has several options—MS Dhoni, in particular, is a possibility considering his stellar performance in the IPL 2024 thus far.

I have GULLYBET Pant as my only wicketkeeper. My thoughts have been more and more weighed toward bringing four pace bowlers. It’s not wise to select a fast bowler ahead of another wicketkeeper. In addition to KL Rahul and Sanju Samson, there are other people who would like to watch Dinesh Karthik. Mahendra Singh Dhoni is now a possibility as well because of his strike rate. Samson, KL Rahul, and maybe even Jitesh Sharma are some of the players I think will be under focus. When you are putting together a team for a tournament that takes place over a month, your wicketkeeper may be your traveling reserve,” he suggested.

What was most interesting about Zaheer’s lineup was his choice of bowler Yash Dayal of Royal Challengers Bengaluru, who hasn’t yet made an appearance for an Indian team. The left-arm seamer from Uttar Pradesh, who was signed by RCB for INR 5 crores in the previous year’s auction, was given a fast-bowling contract by the BCCI next to the announcement of the players under central contracts.

Since Mohammed Shami will not be able to compete, Yash Dayal’s slot will be available when the final 15 are announced. When you need a bowler to take his position, you can always rely on MY 11 CIRCLE. If Siraj’s bowling doesn’t work out for you, he might also be used as a back-end bowler, he explained.
