Four former veterans including Ashwin have only one demand, Tilak Verma gets a place in the 2023 ODI World Cup team
Former Indian cricketer wants Tilak Verma in Asia Cup and ODI World Cup squad Along with making his debut in international cricket, Tilak Verma has won everyone’s heart very fast on the basis of his first 3 innings. For this reason, apart from current Indian player Ravichandran Ashwin, former chief selector and 4 former Indian players are advising to include him in the Asia Cup and ODI World Cup team. At this time, the eyes of all cricket fans are focused on the Indian team to be announced for the upcoming Asia Cup and ODI World Cup.
With less than two months left for the ODI World Cup to begin, chief selector Ajit Agarkar will not be thinking of making any major changes in the team. However, after the kind of game that Tilak has shown, everyone has definitely been forced to think about him. Tilak has played innings of 39, 51 and 49 runs in 3 T20 matches so far.
Regarding the inclusion of Tilak Verma in the World Cup team, Ravichandran Ashwin said on his YouTube channel that it will not be an easy decision. If we don’t have many back-ups for the World Cup, can we consider Tilak as an option? Because Sanju Samson has done very well in ODIs so far. The good thing about Tilak is that he is a left-handed player. Team India has only Ravindra Jadeja as a left-handed player from number-1 to 7.
Ashwin further said in his statement that if you see the spin bowling attack present with the other top teams, then Australia has Ashton Agar, England has Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid. This clearly shows that they do not have a better finger spin bowler against the left arm batsman. This is the reason why Tilak’s visit is considered important.
You look at Tilak’s List-A record
Team India’s former chief selector MSK Prasad also joined Ashwin’s tone and said that you should look at Tilak’s List-A record, he scored at an average of more than 55 in 25 matches. Are. Tilak has 5 centuries and 5 half-centuries in his name. This clearly shows that he has changed his score from 50 to 100 by at least 50 percent. I think that if Shreyas Iyer is not able to make a place in the team, then Tilak can prove to be a better option.
If you want to try someone why not Tilak Verma
Team India’s former opening batsman Wasim Jaffer in his statement to ESPN Cricinfo said about Tilak that usually you want to include a player who has played 15 to 20 matches. We are expecting Shreyas Iyer and Lokesh Rahul to be ready till the Asia Cup, but till now there is no official information about their availability, we do not know how serious their injury is. So if you want to try someone then why not Tilak Verma? I don’t know who will play or not but I would like to place my bet on Tilak.
Akash Chopra, Pragyan Ojha and RP Singh gave this statement on the inclusion of Tilak
Former Indian team player Pragyan Ojha tweeted and recommended Tilak to play at number-4 in the ODI team. On the other hand, Akash Chopra said on Geo Cinema that we usually forget those people who are not here. We are currently worried about the number-4 position. We saw this problem during the ODI series when 3 different batsmen were tried. Akshar was also sent to bat at this number. We are still discussing about Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul. Tilak will have to wait when he comes back. But if he doesn’t come then why don’t we give Tilak a chance.
On Akash Chopra’s statement, RP Singh also supported him and said that Tilak has ticked all the boxes so far and impressed while batting fearlessly. He has not felt under pressure at the time of batting even once. I think he has come with better preparation and credit should be given to domestic cricket and IPL.
