5 Indian players who will play their first T20 World Cup this year


With just a few days left for the T20 World Cup to begin, all the teams are now engaged in warm-up matches so that their players selected for the World Cup can get maximum match practice. Talking about the Indian team, the T20I series against South Africa was their last series before the World Cup.

After this series, the Indian team is reaching Australia and playing a warm-up match. The squad selected for the World Cup has a good mix of experienced and young players. However, there are some players whose first T20 World Cup will be there. In this article we are going to mention 5 such Indian players.

These 5 Indian players will be seen in the T20 World Cup for the first time

#1 Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal, one of the most prominent players of the Indian team, is also included in this list. Chahal, the joint-highest wicket-taker for India in the T20I format, will play his first World Cup in the shorter format this year. Chahal, who made his T20 debut in 2016, was not included in the last T20 World Cup. However, this time he will have a chance to prove his worth in a big way.

#2 Axar Patel

You will probably be surprised to know that Axar Patel, who made his international debut in 2014, has not participated in any ICC tournament so far. For this reason, the T20 World Cup to be held this year will be the first ICC tournament of his career. Due to the presence of a brilliant all-rounder like Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel was always used as a backup option. This is the reason why this year when Ravindra Jadeja was ruled out of the World Cup due to injury, Axar Patel was given his place.

Axar Patel has been in terrific form this year and we hope he will not let India miss Jadeja with his all-round performance in the World Cup.

#3 Harshal Patel

Fast bowler Harshal Patel was included in the Indian team in 2021 due to his good performance in the IPL and has now become a regular member of the T20 team. Harshal Patel, who has been out of the team due to injury for some time, was selected in the team of T20 World Cup as soon as he returned. Although Harshal’s performance after his return from injury was not special, the team management has shown full confidence in his ability.

#4 Arshdeep Singh

Arshdeep Singh, who made his debut in international cricket only a few months back, has made his place in the Indian team in a very short span of time. Due to his sharp bowling, he has been included in the T20 World Cup team as a leading fast bowler. Arshdeep Singh has so far taken 19 wickets in 13 T20 matches. He is going to have a big responsibility in the ICC tournament to be held in Australia.

#5 Deepak Hooda

Deepak Hooda included himself in the race for the World Cup by scoring a century in the third innings of his T20 International career. However, his performance in the last few matches has not been very special. In the T20 series against Australia and South Africa, Hooda was not given a chance in a single match. Despite this, he is in the squad for the World Cup and it remains to be seen how he performs when given a chance.
