He holds the fourth position in the T20 ranking in the batting series. Virat Kohli was the player of the event in the last T20 World Cup in 2014 and 2016 and he is generally known to channelize his anger through batting.
Kohli’s performance is of the loftiest order in big events and he’s anticipated to dominate the T20 World Cup 2021 despite going through a slight dip in form in recent times.
Despite this, he’ll be the stylist bet for the fantasy team from all countries. Kohli’s record in the showpiece event makes him the top Indian player to watch out for at the World Cup.
Rohit Sharma is the first Indian player to have been a part of all the T20 World Cups since 2007. He pulled off 673 runs from the twenty-eight matches he played in the T20 World Cups.
He secured 2864 runs in 111 matches in T20I which helped him become the third player with the highest runs. He definitely has carved a niche in the world of cricket.
The opener has always proved to be reliable for team India. Let’s not forget his smashing performance in the warm-up match where he clearly stated with his bat that more such performances are to come from him.
Jasprit Bumrah was a part of the 2016 T20 World cup and this will be the second time he is again going to represent India.
There is no doubt that his outstanding balling skills helped earn the third position in this season of IPL in terms of wicket-takers. His great understanding of the yorker would prove to be beneficial for him.
He is an all-rounder, though it was apparent that he was a more effective bowler, having the capability to hit a spot with grim delicacy with no less batting skills.
Also in this season of IPL, he has experienced prolonged success with both bat and ball. With the Indian squad having good spinners it would be hard to ignore Jadeja. He made his T20 World Cup debut in the year 2009.
This year MS Dhoni will not be the wicketkeeper of India. Rishabh Pant will step into his shoes and will do wicket-keeping for India. This is his first-ever T20 World Cup.
