T20 WC India Squad: Rohit and Ajit Agarkar held press conference, answered many questions from KL Rahul to Rinku Singh

The Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 has been announced. On Thursday, Chief Selector Ajit Agarkar and Captain Rohit Sharma participated in the press conference. During this, he also answered many questions. From KL Rahul being dropped to Rinku Singh not getting a chance, he also gave his opinion on Virat Kohli’s strike rate.

Why did you drop KL Rahul?

When Chief Selector Ajit Agarkar was asked by the media why KL Rahul was dropped? So on this he said that, we needed a player in the middle. KL Rahul is batting at the top. Sanju has done well and even Rishabh Pant is batting at number 5. However, it is not about who is better and who is not? But Pant and Sanju have spent more time batting lower down the order.

Why doesn’t Rinku Singh get a chance?

On Rinku Singh not being given a chance in the team, Agarkar said that Rinku Singh has not done anything wrong. Dropping him was the hardest decision, no fault of his. This is unfortunate.

Whereas Indian Chief Selector Ajit Agarkar said about Hardik Pandya that he has come after a long leave. We have more than a month to go before Mumbai Indians’ first match. We know what he brings and how much balance he brings to the team. Luckily he has recovered well this IPL.

Selection of Shivam Dubey?

Team India captain Rohit Sharma said on the selection of Shivam Dubey that our top order bats aggressively and this is not bad. We wanted someone to play a similar role in the middle overs and play freely. We selected Shivam Dubey based on his performance in the IPL. We talked about it and selected him.

Why four spinners and three pacers in the Indian squad?

To this Rohit Sharma replies that I definitely wanted four spinners. We have played a lot of cricket in West Indies. We know the conditions and the match will start at 10-10.30 am. There is quite a bit of technical aspect involved. I am not going to tell the reason publicly right now. Want to field Hardik as a fast bowling all-rounder. Axar and Jadeja also bat well and Kuldeep and Chahal are aggressive spinners who give us good balance.
