Team India sends back four net bowlers from the UAE ahead of T20 World Cup 2021

During their campaign in the T20 World Cup 2021 in Oman and the United Arab Emirates, Team India is said to have sent back four net bowlers to India. The four net bowlers for the tournament are thought to be Karn Sharma, Shahbaz Ahmed, Venkatesh Iyer, and Krishnappa Gowtham, who have already arrived in India. The four players will now compete in the forthcoming Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 Trophy, which is set to begin on November 4th. The Board of Control for Cricket in India wants the players to have more match practise, according to reports.

“Yes, once the competition begins, there won’t be many net sessions. The national selectors believe that all of the spinners, in particular, would benefit if they returned to their respective states to compete in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy. They need match practise,” a senior BCCI official stated.

Only Iyer and Ahmed of the four players were given opportunities to play in their respective teams throughout the IPL. Ahmed polished his abilities for the Royal Challengers Bangalore while Iyer was playing for the two-time champion Kolkata Knight Riders.

Sharma and Gowtham were members of the Chennai Super Kings, the 2021 champions, but they didn’t get enough playing time because of the presence of several famous Indian stars. Meanwhile, Team India will begin their World Cup campaign against Pakistan on Sunday, October 24 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. The Men in Blue have always come out on top in their previous meetings in the major event. The last time they met in a T20 World Cup match was in Kolkata’s Eden Gardens in 2016.

After spectacular wins over England and Australia in the warm-ups, India, captained by Virat Kohli, must be full of confidence. In the T20I format, this is Kohli’s final tournament as Team India’s captain. He had previously decided to step down as captain of RCB in the IPL. In addition to Pakistan, India will compete in the Super 12s against New Zealand, Afghanistan, Scotland, and Namibia.
