Fans and analysts are already focused on the next T20 World Cup this year because Team India has left the existing Asia Cup 2022. India had a dismal performance and was eliminated from the Super 12 round of the prestigious event last year. India will be striving for a stronger performance in this year’s competition under the leadership of Rohit Sharma. Former cricketer Ashish Nehra made the unusual decision to exclude Deepak Chahar and Mohammad Shami from his projected Indian team lineup for the competition.

Nehra chose Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul to start the innings while speaking on ICC Review. Because the T20 World Cup is still far from over, he predicted that KL Rahul will play a significant role throughout the next six matches.

The former pacer then added Suryakumar Kumar at either position 4 or 5 and Virat Kohli as his third player. He suggested that Sky be placed in the starting eleven so that Rishabh Pant could be substituted for him in either position 4 or 5. Nehra chose Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja as his next two picks after Suryakumar.

Nehra mentioned the value of spinners in the bowling department before mentioning Arshdeep Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Harshal Patel, and Jasprit Bumrah as his pacers. In addition to Chahal and Jadeja, he said, “Ravi Ashwin is very crucial and may have an influence even if he doesn’t play.”

However, he said, “one name comes to me, and that is Mohammed Shami. Being a Test specialist, he hasn’t received that much interest from the selectors, and I am not saying this because I watched him up and close in Gujarat Titans.
