Gujarat Titans won the IPL 2022 title. Fast bowler Mohammed Shami took 20 wickets for the team. Even after this, he did not get a chance to play in the Indian T20 team. After the team’s poor performance in the Asia Cup, there is a constant demand to include Shami in Team India. But Ashish Nehra has not included him in his World Cup team. Apart from this, fast bowler Deepak Chahar and leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi are also not in his team.
Kohli not an opener
Virat Kohli will not be in the role of opener in Ashish Nehra’s team. He believes that KL Rahul should open the innings with Rohit Sharma. Virat played at number three and Suryakumar Yadav at number four. Nehra ji said- As far as T20 World Cup is concerned, we have a long way to go. So I think we will see a lot from KL Rahul in the next six games.
He has also included injured Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin in his team. To this Nehra said, ‘Not only Chahal and Jadeja are important, even Ashwin is important. Even if he plays, he can make an impact. In fast bowling, he has selected Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Arshdeep Singh along with Jasprit Bumrah. He has both Dinesh Karthik and Rishabh Pant in his team.
Ashish Nehra’s squad for T20 World Cup: Rohit Sharma (captain), KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Dinesh Karthik, Jasprit Bumrah, Harshal Patel, Arshdeep Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
