Virat Kohli believes the current Indian squad is most balanced for T20 World Cup 2021
Indian skipper Virat Kohli expressed his views on the squad for the T20I World Cup 2021 in a press conference that took place ahead of the T20I series against England. Kohli talked about the team composition that can lead India in T20I World Cup.
However, Kohli believes that some youngsters can break into the side even though only seven months are left for the tournament. Kohli also told the media that the addition that is done in the team can be an x-factor for the team in the ICC’s tournament.
“If you look at the squad and the additions we’ve made in this squad, we have tried to address a few things that we needed in specific – guys who can be x-factors with the bat and do things that are the need of the hour. These guys have done that in the IPL on a regular basis. We have covered all those bases. Now, it’ll be interesting to see how they go about things in these five games as these are the only games we have as a team before the World Cup,” Virat Kohli said.
“I feel the squad we have right now, barring Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja) who will come back whenever fit, is the most balanced.”
Kohli also believes that the Indian batting line-up can thrash any team in the upcoming T20I World Cup because the team batting has the depth to conquer any series or tournament. Also, the team is balanced in both batting and bowling.
“There are many things we have spoken about. The kind of players we have added in the squad is to give our batting line-up more depth and not play in a similar pattern as we have played in the past.”
“We want to be a side that plays free cricket and not have any baggage about lack of depth. We have explosive batsmen in the team now who can change the game even if we are two or three wickets down. This time around, you’ll see the guys being a bit more aggressive,” Virat Kohli further added.
