With the T20 World Cup approaching in October this year, Team India will have a big task in hand with respect to selecting the championship-winning squad. Having not won an ICC tournament since 2013, the Men in Blue are expected to leave no stones unturned to lift the ultimate glory this year. There is a huge pool of talent in the Indian cricket circuit right now and with so many upcoming youngsters, some big names might miss out from the final 18-member squad. Check out the list of players who might not feature in India’s squad for this year’s T20 World Cup.
1. Manish Pandey
The stylish right-handed batsman has gone down the pecking order for India in T20 format because of his strike-rate issues. Manish Pandey was even dropped from Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2021 because of the same reason and with players like Suryakumar Yadav knocking the doors, the 31-year-old is expected to be excluded from the World Cup squad. Pandey played his last T20I for India against Australia in December 2020, where he scored 2 runs off 8 deliveries and was dropped from the next match.
