3 wicketkeepers gave sleepless nights to the selectors, staked claim for T20 World Cup

New Delhi. The Indian Premier League is considered important for the Indian team to be selected for the T20 World Cup. In the IPL being played before this mega tournament, many players want to attract the attention of the selectors with their strong performances. Everyone’s eyes are on who will the selectors give a chance as back-up after Rishabh Pant has strengthened his claim as a wicketkeeper.

The ICC T20 World Cup is to be hosted by America and West Indies Cricket Board from 1st to 29th June. This time again the Indian team is being considered a contender to win the ICC trophy. Last year, Australia defeated Team India in the final of the ODI World Cup played in India and broke its dream of winning the title. This is probably going to be the last ICC tournament for captain Rohit Sharma. In such a situation, when he sits with the selectors along with coach Rahul Dravid, he will select a strong team.

Competition between 3 wicketkeepers
Rishabh Pant, who is returning after a horrific car accident in the Indian Premier League after a year and a quarter, has shown an amazing game. His place in the T20 World Cup team is considered confirmed. Everyone’s eyes are on who the selectors will give a chance as the second wicketkeeper. Three wicketkeepers have staked their strong claim. Coach Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma have to take a decision on this.

Who is ahead in the race for second wicketkeeper?
The selectors are going to face difficulty in selecting the backup wicketkeeper for the T20 World Cup. Sanju Samson, who is captaining Rajasthan Royals, has strengthened his claim by playing four half-centuries. By scoring 385 runs in 9 matches, he is at fourth position in the list of batsmen scoring the most runs.

KL Rahul, who is captaining Lucknow Super Giants, is one place below him and has 378 runs in his account. Dinesh Karthik of Royal Challengers Bangalore has scored 262 runs in 10 matches. He has staked his claim with his explosive innings. It remains to be seen whether the selectors along with captain Rohit and coach Dravid will once again show confidence in this player.
