BCCI have time till Oct 15 to edit T20 World Cup squad, Hardik Pandya under scanner
Last Updated : 11 Oct 2021 02:07:45 AM IST


Team India selectors have five more days to make any changes to the T20 World Cup squad as the International Cricket Council (ICC) has allowed all the Super 12 teams a window of one week till October 15.

It has been revealed that the widely-believed October 10 deadline was only for the teams who are slated to play in the qualifying round from October 17 onwards.
An ICC official confirmed to The Times of India, saying: "Teams can change their teams seven days prior to the start of their support period. India's T20 World Cup campaign starts on October 23. So, they have time to change the team till Oct 15 midnight."
The first player currently under the scanner is Hardik Pandya. The all-rounder was selected as a fourth seamer option and was touted to have regained full fitness. However, he didn't bowl a single over in Mumbai Indians' (MI) recently concluded IPL 2021 campaign and didn't show any notable glimpses of form with the bat either.
A BCCI source confirmed to TOI that Hardik is "running out of time" and there's a chance that he'll be replaced by either Shardul Thakur or Deepak Chahar in the main squad. Both Chennai Super Kings (CSK) pacers are currently in the reserves and their promotion could make way for IPL 2021 Purple Cap holder Harshal Patel of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
A BCCI official had earlier told IANS that there will be no change in the squad unless someone is injured. It is believed that the physios are keeping a close watch on Varun Chakravarthy and Pandya fitness.
India squad currently: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (VC), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Chahar, Varun, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishan Kishan.
Standby players: Shreyas Iyer, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar.
