3 Reasons why Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected for T20wc 2021 squad?

Here we will discuss why Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected for T20wc 2021 squad even after being a regular squad member for so long in Indian cricket:

Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected for the T20wc 2021 squad On the 8th of September Indian selectors announced 15 players squad for the T20 world cup 2021 and Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected for T20wc 2021 squad. T20WC will be held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from October 17 to November 14, 2021. But there are lots of talented and experienced players from the Indian team who have not been selected for the upcoming T20 world cup despite being in the regular squad. One of the best white-ball spinners Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected for the T20wc 2021 squad. Some big names are Shikhar Dhawan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shreyash Iyer, Shardhul Thakur, Deepak Chahar, and Krunal Pandya have not been selected in 15 Players squad announced by BCCI.

Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma (VC), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Rahul Chahar, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Varun Chakravarthy, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohd Shami.

Reserved players- Shreyash Iyyer, Deepak Chahar, Shardhul Thakur

One of the biggest surprises for Indian fans, Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected for T20wc 2021 squad, who has been in the squad regularly since his debut in white-ball cricket, has been left out by the BCCI. He has not been even selected for reserved squad players. Where, Ravichandran Ashwin, a player who has not been in the squad since 2017, has opted for the upcoming T20 world cup.

Chahal who played his last series against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka last month gave a decent performance in white-ball cricket. He was the highest wicket-taker in the ODI format and took 5 wickets in 3 matches with an excellent average of 20.40. In wherein T20 format he played only one game and took 1 wicket.

Here are some possible reasons behind Yuzvendra Chahal not being selected for T20wc 2021 squad from the world cup t20 squad.

REASON 1- Below average performances in T20 cricket

After the inclusion of Yuzvendra Chahal in Indian cricket in white-ball cricket, he has been a match-winner for India for a long time. But for the last few years, he is struggling in white-ball cricket, especially in t20 cricket, whether it is in international T20 cricket or in the Indian premier league.

Many experts say that his performance has been down since M S Dhoni’s retirement from international cricket, and Yuzvendra Chahal also credited his success to M S Dhoni for that.

But if you look at his career in IPL, MS Dhoni was not definitely behind the wickets to guide him and his performance is also has been down in IPL. That means his form has vanished in the last couple of years, which is a real concern for Chahal. This could be a visible reason behind Yuzvendra Chahal not being selected for T20wc 2021 squad.

In his last 10 T20 matches, he has taken 10 wickets with a poor economy of 8.92 and that’s why selectors turn their heads towards Rahul Chahar.

REASON 2- inclusion of Rahul Chahar

Rahul Chahar is a talented young leg spinner, who has been excellent for Mumbai Indians for the last couple of years. He was also in the Indian squad during the last tour of Sri Lanka, and he really impressed Indian selectors with his performances, which led to him in the eyes of selectors for the t20 world cup selection.

Rahul Chahar played only 2 T20 matches there and took 4 wickets with an excellent average of 10.40. You can easily predict that Rahul Chahar was always a replacement for Yuzvendra Chahal.

The inclusion of a younger and more informed player ahead of him could be a reason behind why Yuzvendra Chahal was not selected for T20wc 2021 squad.

Reason 3- Lack of batting and fielding skills

One of the vague reasons behind Yuzvendra Chahal not being selected for the T20wc 2021 squad is his lack of batting skill which is quite required in modern format cricket, especially in t20 cricket, a tail-ender needs to bat down the order sometimes and Yuzi Chahal lacks that skill.

CHahal is not a quick fielder also. While Rahul Chahar can bat a little bit and can field very well also. We have seen his fielding skill in Sri Lanka where he took a few remarkable catches.
