As soon as the IPL ends, the biggest battle of T20 cricket is about to begin. The World Cup tournament will be played in West Indies and America on June 1. All the Indian players are working hard in IPL 2024 for selection in the T20 World Cup. Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, India's 15-member team will go to play the World Cup, for which the BCCI selectors are keeping a close eye on the performance of the players playing in the IPL. Cricket experts from India and abroad are also preparing information about their potential players for selection in the Indian team.

Amidst all this, former Indian player and famous commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has announced his team of 15 members, after which there is a sensation in the cricket world because Sanjay did not include Team India's star batsman Virat Kohli in his squad. Is. Kohli's slow batting is being considered a major reason why Manjrekar did not give place to Virat Kohli in the Indian team.

Kohli is an orange cap holder

It is noteworthy that Virat Kohli is the Orange Cap holder of IPL 2024. He has scored 430 runs in 9 matches this season at a strike rate of 145.76, which includes one century and three half-centuries. Virat Kohli's highest score is 113 runs. Recently, in the match against Hyderabad, Kohli scored only 51 runs in 7.1 overs whereas he had scored 32 runs in 18 balls, but after that Kohli's batting became very slow, after which he is being trolled for slow batting. So the veteran players there are advising him to increase the strike rate in T20.

Shubman, Shivam, Rinku and Hardik are also out.

The matter does not end here, apart from Kohli, this veteran cricketer has also kept opener Shubman Gill out of the team. Shivam Dubey, who batted brilliantly in the middle order for CSK, is also not in their squad, and KKR's star batsman Rinku Singh and Mumbai Indian captain Hardik Pandya are also not in Manjrekar's team. Now the question arises that which 15 players has Manjrekar selected in his World Cup team?

Players included in Sanjay Manjrekar's squad

Sanjay Manjrekar has given place to Rohit Sharma and Yashasvi Jaiswal as openers in the T20 World Cup team. Whereas Sanju Samson has been placed at number three and Suryakumar Yadav at number four. He has chosen Lokesh Rahul and Rishabh Pant as wicketkeepers. In spin bowling, Kuldeep Yadav, UG Chahal, Ravindra Jadeja and Krunal Pandya have been kept in the team. Manjrekar has included Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Siraj, Avesh Khan, Mayank Yadav and Harshit Rana in his squad for fast bowling.
