The Indian Premier League (IPL) is not only a cash-rich tournament, but it is also an effective pathway for the new Indian cricketers to enter in the national team.
While India will host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 from October to November 2021, the delayed IPL 2020 and IPL 2021 are going to be crucial for the Indian cricketers. The top performers in the upcoming IPL tournaments will be the front runner for the next T20 World Cup selection.
Here we are talking about the top five Indian bowlers who can fix their spot for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 during the upcoming IPL tournaments
After some long battle, the 28-year-old Indian right-arm pacer Shardul Thakur has finally earned some regular chances in the recent Indian limited-overs sides. Due to his consistent performances, Shardul is currently the most wicket-taker for India in the ongoing calendar year as he has bagged 17 wickets in 12 matches in 2020. Moreover, he has the ability to bat aggressively in the late batting order, which is surely an advantage for him.
After making his IPL debut in 2015, Shardul has got 36 wickets in 36 matches. Though his performances weren’t up to the mark in the last IPL edition, he is more mature bowler at present. Surely, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pacer is looking to perform well in the next two IPL seasons and try to take maximum benefit in the presence of the CSK skipper MS Dhoni, which can help him to upgrade his skills. If he maintains consistency in the next two IPL editions, Shardul can book his place in the next T20 World Cup.
