All teams are preparing for the T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman this year. These days every team is busy identifying their best players. The host Indian team is considered a strong contender for the title this time and the team has a long army of strong players to make a splash in the short form of cricket. However, it is interesting what team management and captain Virat Kohli ultimately believes in. Former Indian cricketer Saba Karim has been selected by India’s 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup. Saba did not include players like Yuzvendra Chahal, Prithvi Shah, Shikhar Dhawan and Mohammad Shami in their squad.

Speaking to ‘India News’, Saba Karim said:’ The squad selected for the series against England has about 17 players, and I will start selecting my team from there. The players who performed well here but didn’t get a chance to tour Sri Lanka because they were in England, you have no excuse to drop them. There must always be consistency in the choice. That’s why I keep Washington Sunder on my team. I mean, since the match is in the UAE, you need an off spinner and he’s that kind of all-rounder.

Sabah said he would keep Rahul Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in his side. Explaining the reason behind this, he said, “I will keep Rahul Chahar in my side because I think he is an aggressive, wicket-winning bowler. And I will still keep Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the squad because his form is coming back and he will be very important to the team. I included Shreyas Iyer in my squad because he was part of the series against England and he performed well. He did not play in the IPL this year, but last year he performed well.
