While there is clear uncertainty looming around the scheduling of the upcoming edition of the T20 World Cup, it is hard to stop the cricket pundits from discussing possible squads of the participating teams. This time, it was the former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra who came forward with his 14-man team for India to play the fast-paced tournament.
He decided to go with Rohit Sharma and Lokesh Rahul as openers by installing skipper Virat Kohli at the all-important third position. For him, young guns Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant and Hardik Pandya would form a fine middle-order backed by the finishing prowess of Shivam Dube and Ravindra Jadeja.
The cricketer turned commentator relied on the skills of Mohammad Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal and Deepak Chahar to form a sturdy bowling department for the men in blue. It is important to note that veteran batters Shikhar Dhawan and Mahendra Singh Dhoni had no place in the team of the 42-year old analyst.
