T20 World Cup: Ravi Shastri said – Team India will be announced only after Hardik Pandya’s seal, 2007 model will make champion again
Ravi Shastri feels that like the 2007 World Cup, young players will get a chance in the upcoming tournament. At that time, under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Indian team full of youth had won the World Cup title.
Former coach Ravi Shastri is expecting many new faces in the Indian team for next year’s T20 World Cup, in whose selection matters captain Hardik Pandya’s words will be given a lot of attention. Star batsman Virat Kohli, along with Test and ODI skipper Rohit Sharma, still remains in the T20 squad plans, but the process of phasing out senior players has begun following their semi-final exit from last year’s T20 World Cup in Australia. It was done.
Shastri told ‘ESPN Cricinfo’, “I think they will do it (opportunity for new players in the team). The T20 World Cup is coming up and there is a lot of talent in the youth. We have seen some great talent in this year’s IPL. It will not be a completely new team, but it will have many new faces. He (Hardik) is already the captain of India in this format. If there is no fitness issue, he will continue to lead the team.
Like the year 2007, young players will get a chance
Shastri feels that like the 2007 World Cup, young players will get a chance in the upcoming tournament. At that time, under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Indian team full of youth had won the World Cup title. Shastri believes, “Indian team management will again follow the path of 2007 T20 World Cup. They will spot talent and will have no dearth of options. There will also be an option for players who have captained IPL teams.
Workload management is not a problem with Hardik Pandya
Shastri said that the good thing with Hardik is that there is no workload management problem with him. Hardik is not playing Test matches after undergoing lower back surgery. Shastri said, “At the moment there is no workload management problem with Hardik. Between the IPL and the ODI World Cup, the Indian team will play only four-five matches (limited overs matches). He is not a part of the Test team. He will get a chance to rest during the Test series.
