Sanjay Manjrekar’s Comments and Predictions on India’s Final T20 World Cup Squad

Ex-Team India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar believes there will be surprising inclusions and snubs in the final India T20 World Cup squad. The veteran cricketer thinks amid heightened anticipation that players like Virat Kohli should not be in the squad. Sanjay opted for other players like Krunal Pandya ahead of Kohli in his suggested squad.

Manjrekar also recommended Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav to feature as spinners for the national team:

This is perhaps Kuldeep Yadav at his peak with regards to his skills, his confidence. You can see now he’s out there like a Bumrah or Chahal at his peak. He is commanding that kind of respect. He looks comfortable with the responsibility and champions, you know, those breaks and those moments that you are seeking at the right time,”

Fans may not agree with his predicted final squad. However, he mentioned some popular names who could bring India success in America this June.
