Young wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan was among the 15-member squad named for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2021 on Wednesday, slated to commence on October 17. In the wake of it, Ishan’s IPL franchise Mumbai Indians’ teammates came down to congratulate the cricketer.

Meanwhile, currently, Ishan Kishan is in the UAE gearing up for the second phase of IPL 2021, which will start from September 19. Soon after the announcement, Mumbai Indians’ cricketers came down to wish Ishan, which was later shared on their social media handle.

They captioned the post:

“This video has got us all Smiles and hugs all around for our Pocket Dynamo after his inclusion in the T20 World Cup squad.”

Meanwhile, Ishan Kishan made his debut earlier this against England. He has impressed with his hard-hitting batting skills which also pushed his selection ahead of veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan, a report in Sportskeeda suggests.

“The selectors and management came to a decision that Shikhar’s conservative batting approach might not serve the team’s purposes and that has cost him a spot in the squad.

Instead, Ishan Kishan has been picked as the third opener, and his fearless style of batting is being preferred over Dhawan. Management is clear that India cannot win T20 games with a conservative batting approach,” the source said.

Ravichandran Ashwin makes a cut in the final 15 for T20 World Cup

Veteran spinner Ravichandran Ashwin returns to the Indian T20I squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 to be held in UAE and Oman while the wrist-spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav has been left out for the multi-team event. Varun Chakravarthy and Rahul Chahar make it to the squad as specialist spinners while Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel along with Ashwin are the spin bowling all-rounders.

Shikhar Dhawan, who recently captained the limited-overs side in Sri Lanka, is a notable absentee while the selectors also chose to leave out Prithvi Shaw.

Meanwhile, Shreyas Iyer, Shardul Thakur, and Deepak Chahar have been named as the standby players for the T20 World Cup.

India’s 15-member squad for T20 World Cup: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, 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, Mohammed Shami.
