    T20 World Cup: Shikhar Dhawan out of T20 World Cup squad, chief selector says he has been rested

    Mumbai. After the announcement of the T20 World Cup squad, chief selector Chetan Sharma said Shikhar Dhawan is a key player in the limited overs team. But at this point he needed to get some rest and give other players a chance. Dhawan captained India in a limited-overs tour of Sri Lanka in July. Chetan Sharma said, ‘Shikhar Dhawan is a very important player for us. He was the captain on the tour of Sri Lanka. I can’t say what happened. He is important. “It is clear from the statement of the chief selector that the important players for the team will have to take a break from the tournament.

    “At this point the need is to try other players and give the peak a rest,” he said. He will be back soon. Captain Virat Kohli can open the innings with Rohit. Chetan Sharma said, ‘Our three openers Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Han Shan Kisan. Kisan can also play in the middle order with the start of the innings, which has increased our options. He plays the spinners well. The team management will decide if they want Kohli to open the innings.

    Pant was the first choice as a wicketkeeper.

    “Virat Kohli has a great record in T20 batting in the middle order,” he said. But everything will depend on the situation at that time. Before Kisan and Rahul, Shav Pant is the first choice in wicketkeeping. The former fast bowler said, ‘We have three wicketkeepers, but the number one punt. After that Kisan and Rahul will be used in case of emergency.

    Many all-rounders in the team

    Chetan Sharma said that there is a need for all-rounders in the T20 format and that is why such players were preferred. He said, ‘We have Rabindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya and Akshar Patel. If the wicket is taking a turn then Akshar and Jadeja will be. Pandya is one of the best all-rounders. We picked a lot of all-rounders. Asked about liking Rahul Chahar over wrist spinner Yuzbendra Chahal, he said, “We talked about Yuzbendra Chahal and the selectors felt the need for a fast bowler. Chahar would be more useful in such a wicket.
