Mohammad Azharuddin surprised by India’s T20 WC squad selection, mentions 2 changes in squad

BCCI has announced the Indian squad for the highly anticipated ICC T20 World Cup 2022. According to Mohammad Azharuddin, there were some notable omissions from the squad as players like Shami and Shreyas were kept on the standby list. The absence of these two star players in the 15-man squad is quite surprising. In the last T20 World Cup 2021, the selectors dropped Chahal saying that he bowls slowly.

The Indian cricket team failed to make it to the finals of the Asia Cup 2022. The team had high expectations as it had successful tours of England and the West Indies. The BCCI will know that India have not won the ICCT20 World Cup since the inception of the IPL and a drought of 15 years does not bode well for the richest board.

Mohammad Azharuddin on selection

The former Indian captain was quite furious after the absence of Shami and Shreyas. He wrote on his Twitter handle:Shreyas Iyer in place of Deepak Hooda and Mohammad Shami in place of Harshal Patel would be my choice.

Questionable selection from selection committee

Shami’s exit could prove costly as he has the knack of being a partnership breaker. Head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma should be questioned as to why they were not part of the squad since T20 World Cup 2021. The bowler has very good control over his line and length and most importantly can be a force. In Australia’s fast and bouncy pitches.

We all have seen that India have preferred Arsdeep Singh and Harshal Patel for angle and variations. Opposing teams can play Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah outside and target the third seamer and that could be the turning point. Shreyas Iyer was not selected last time as he was not 100% fit and his absence this time does not look good. He is someone who can play long and efficient innings. Deepak Hooda has been given the nod and had a terrible Asia Cup 2022 which doesn’t look good.
