India’s 17-man squad for the two T20Is against Ireland later this month has several young players selected, some of whom excelled in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The team will be led by Hardik Pandya and will is another venue for the Indian management team to zero on the players who are likely to make it to the T20 World Cup, going to take place in Australia in October-November. However, one missing name in the group is Rahul Tewatia.
Tewatia has earned a reputation for being a great finish for the IPL 2022 Gujarati Titans with two memorable attacks. Former Indian cricket team captain Sunil Gavaskar thinks he should be part of the Indian team that travels to Ireland.
“Rahul Tewatia, the ice man. Sometimes you feel if you are in such a touch-and-go situation maybe take an extra team. Instead 15, take an extra member because it is difficult to leave someone who has always done so well. He was excellent. He has won matches, which he seems to have lost. He went in there and broke the ball around very smart, very smart. You also have the opportunity to play around outside and not just on the side, ”said Sunil Gavaskar during the fifth T20I between India and South Africa on Sunday which was canceled due to rain.
“Someone who is displaying such behavior, maybe include a 16th man and take him to Ireland. Just know what you have done. Just give that message ‘you are on the beach, just work a little harder’. “
The Indian team will launch two T20Is on May 26th and 28th in Dublin.
