New Delhi. Ravindra Jadeja, who played the role of a strong all-rounder in Team India, has injured his right knee in the Asia Cup. After this he also had surgery. After all this, it is now believed that Jadeja will not be seen in the field for at least a year. Which simply means that he will not be seen in the T20 World Cup as well. The T20 World Cup will be held in Australia in October this year. Before this, the Indian team has a golden opportunity to prepare for it. Before the T20 World Cup, the Indian team has to play home series with Australia and South Africa. Where there will be a 3-3 match T20 series with both the countries. After this, now the biggest question is coming up that who will play his character in the team now? In this episode, today we are going to tell you about three such all-rounder players who can join the team in place of Ravindra Jadeja.
Axar Patel was included in the team despite the presence of Ravindra Jadeja in the Asia Cup. It is believed that after Jadeja’s injury, now Axar Patel is going to be the first choice of the selectors to be included in the team. The reason behind this is that both these players show similar qualities in terms of cricket. Prior to this, Axar Patel was part of the World Cup squad in the year 2015. After this, now after almost 7 years, this rising star of the Indian cricket team is ahead of other all-rounders in the race to be a part of the team.
Shahbaz Ahmed was included in the team in the Zimbabwe tour as an all-rounder, but did not get a chance to debut. Right now he has a lot of time and in such a situation, the Indian team will not miss out on giving a new player to the team by including him in their squad for a long time. There is a lot of variety in Shahbaz’s bowling and batting. In IPL, he has left no stone unturned to prove this point.
Washington Sundar has been away from international cricket for a long time. The reason behind this is not his poor performance, but some untoward incidents. Sundar sometimes gets injured and sometimes suffers from disease. He has been facing many problems since his international cricket debut. Earlier, he was supposed to be part of the team for the Zimbabwe series, but he got injured once again in the Royal London One Day Cup. After all this, if Washington Sundar returns for the Australia series, he will not miss being an important part of the team. He has the ability to take wickets during the powerplays. Apart from this, he can also score important runs for the team in the lower batting order.
