The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made some changes in the squad for the T20 World Cup. The main selection committee has announced these changes today. BCCI has included a new bowler in the squad in place of bowler Axar Patel. Shardul Thakur has been replaced by Akshar. Akshar has been sent to the list of stand-by players in place of Shardul.
According to a leading daily report, the form of some of the 15 players selected by the selectors in the squads of the T20 World Cup has been a matter of concern in the IPL. Keeping this in view these changes have been made. Apart from this, it is also believed that Shardul has been brought as a cover for Hardik. Hardik has not been bowling for a long time. He has just been included in the team as a batsman. The selectors have selected Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar and Axar Patel as standby players.
