Pandya’s poor form increases tension, Pant’s place confirmed, Rahul ahead of Samson


highlights

Hardik Pandya has bowled 17 overs in 8 matches in IPL. Team selection for T20 World Cup may happen at the end of this month

New Delhi. Hardik Pandya’s poor form before the T20 World Cup is a matter of concern. Pandya, who is captaining Mumbai Indians in IPL, has not been able to perform well so far this season. He is also bowling less. On the other hand, there is a tough competition for the second wicketkeeper between Sanju Samson and KL Rahul. While choosing the team for the World Cup to be held in West Indies and America, there will also be a dilemma regarding the extra bowler. It remains to be seen whether fast bowler Avesh Khan is selected or leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi or all-rounder Akshar Patel in view of the slow pitches of West Indies. According to media reports, captain Rohit Sharma can meet selection committee head Ajit Agarkar.

ICC has given a deadline of May 1 to select the team. BCCI can announce the team at the end of this week or early next week. Hardik Pandya has bowled 17 overs in eight matches for Mumbai Indians. So far in this IPL, he can hit only seven sixes. Only 150 runs have come from his bat and his strike rate has been 142. However, apart from Pandya, there is no alternative visible because Shivam Dubey is also not bowling. In terms of skill and speed, Dubey is nowhere at par with Pandya in bowling but in batting, he is in excellent form which cannot be ignored.

Pant confirmed his place
Wicketkeeper batsman Rishabh Pant, who has scored 342 runs at a strike rate of 161 in the IPL, has confirmed his place. There is a contest for the second wicketkeeper between KL Rahul (302 runs at 141 strike rate) and Sanju Samson (314 runs at 152 strike rate). Among the bowlers, the places of Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammad Siraj, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav are almost confirmed. However, except Bumrah and Kuldeep, other bowlers are not in form in IPL, hence the option of additional bowler will be important.

Tough competition between Avesh, Akshar Patel and Bishnoi
There is a competition between fast bowler Avesh of Rajasthan Royals, spinner Akshar of Delhi Capitals and leg spinner Bishnoi of Lucknow Super Giants. Avesh has taken eight wickets at an economy rate of around nine while Bishnoi has taken five wickets at an economy rate of under nine. Akshar has taken seven wickets and his economy rate has been around seven. He is also scoring runs while batting at a strike rate of 132.
