4 Indian players who were nowhere near the team but now in contention for a place in T20WC Squad

T20 World Cup

The T20 World Cup 2021 was a disaster for the Indian cricket team as they failed to make it out of the Group Stage to the knockout stages of the competition. The Men in Blue lost their opening 2 big matches against Pakistan and New Zealand very badly and win in their remaining matches was just not enough for them to qualify.


After the failure in UAE, it was very expected that a massive change will be made in squad, especially given the fact that Rahul Dravid was appointed as the new head coach of the team. And as expected, some new faces were tried out while some former faces returned to the squad.

And now, with another T20 World Cup to be played this year in Australia, Team India is looking to build a solid squad to take to Australia. And the new faces and returning players have done really well that there is now a huge competition for slot.


Today in this article, we discuss about players who were not in contention for a spot in the World Cup at the beginning of the year and suddenly looks all set to book their ticket for Australia.

Arshdeep Singh

While playing for the Punjab Kings in the IPL for the last couple of years, Arshdeep Singh has been making headlines. The left-arm pacer has improved season by season.

He once again proved his worth in the 1st T20I against West Indies. While he may not have played a number matches, but he certainly finds himself in the mix for a selection headache for the selectors.

Deepak Hooda

Deepak Hooda is another player who has been improving season by season and had great IPL 2022. The all-rounder scored 451 runs from 15 matches in the IPL 2022 and his debut against Sri Lanka earlier this year. But, he has really impressed everyone with his performance post IPL 2022.
