India Squad For T20 World Cup 2021: 3 Batsmen Who Can End Up As The Top Run-Scorer. The BCCI, on Wednesday, announced the Indian squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. The 15-member squad was announced for the tournament which is all set to take place from October 17-November 15 in Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Virat Kohli has been named the captain of the side while Rohit Sharma, the veteran opener, will assume the responsibilities of vice-captaincy. The biggest surprise of the entire announcement, was, however, MS Dhoni’s return to the national side as the mentor of India for the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
The 15-member squad selected by the Indian selection committee boasts of a number of hard-hitting batsmen who can turn the tide in India’s favour against any given opposition and under any given circumstances. Let’s take a look at the 3 Indian batsmen who can end the tournament as the top run-scorer of the tournament.
3 Indian Batsmen Who Can Be The Top Run Scorer For The ICC T20 World Cup 2021
3. Rohit Sharma
Rohit Sharma indeed boasts the capability of carrying the Indian team on his shoulders in a major ICC event. The specimen to it can surely be the ICC 2019 Cricket World Cup wherein, he broke the record of smashing the most number of centuries in a single edition of the ODI world cup as he went on to score 5 centuries in the tournament.
However, his heroics couldn’t clinch the title for the Men in Blue but this time around, once again, he will be raring to go in the T20 World Cup 2021. Rohit has already stated his desire of winning at least a couple of World Cups in the next three World Cups and this will mean that he will leave no stone unturned for team India to win the title this year.
2. KL Rahul
KL Rahul has been one of India’s finest batsmen across all the formats in the last couple of years. Cementing his place in the T20I side, KL Rahul has deservedly displaced Shikhar Dhawan from the Indian batting setup. Rahul’s numbers in the last couple of years have been simply sensational for the national team and in the IPL.
He ended IPL 2020 as the highest run-scorer and earned the Orange Cap of the tournament. For team India, KL Rahul was the leading run-scorer across all formats in 2020. In IPL 2021, KL Rahul was firing guns ablaze as he was only second on the list of the top run-scorers after Shikhar Dhawan when the tournament came to a halt earlier this year. He can indeed be the World Cup’s top-run getter this year.
1. Suryakumar Yadav
If there has to be a nemesis of India’s opposition in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021, it has to be Suryakumar Yadav. The flamboyant batsman from Mumbai has been knocking on the door of the national selectors with his performances in the IPL and in the domestic circuit and his perseverance has finally reaped rewards.
With a mind-blowing strike rate of 169.51 for the Men in Blue in 4 T20I matches so far, Suryakumar Yadav has all the weapons in the arsenal to go all guns blazing at the opposition. He will indeed be one of the greatest contenders to win the highest run-getter award this year in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.
