Former cricketer Aakash Chopra’s India T20 World Cup selection included no place for captain Rohit Sharma, former captain Virat Kohli, wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant, and star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja based on IPL performances. Chopra chose Hardik Pandya as the captain of his India T20 World Cup team based on his success in the Indian Premier League. On his debut, Pandya helped Gujarat Titans to their first-ever IPL championship.

“KL Rahul is the first name I’m retaining. He is a T20 gun hitter who has scored over 600 runs this year and can play for 15-17 overs. Ishan Kishan has remained with him. If you look at Ishan Kishan’s stats, you’ll notice that he didn’t have a particularly awful season. “On his YouTube channel, Chopra said.

‘I was planning to retire from One-Day Internationals when Dhoni dropped me from the XI, but Sachin changed my mind. “ Chopra chose Sunrisers Hyderabad’s uncapped batter Rahul Tripathi at number three, followed by Mumbai Indians’ Suryakumar Yadav.

“I’ve maintained Rahul Tripathi at No. 3. He performed well this season, with a high strike rate and match-winning performances. I’ve maintained SKY at No. 4. He did not play in all of the games, but he did play at a high level in the ones he did, “he went on to say.” Chopra chose Krunal Pandya of LSG as his spin-bowling all-rounder in lieu of Ravindra Jadeja, who has struggled for CSK in this IPL.
