Bangla Hunt Desk: The most popular T20 league in the current cricket world is IPL. The IPL is not only limited to India now, cricket boards of different countries have also started giving importance to the IPL in the selection of their national team cricketers. The BCCI also considers the IPL as a criterion for selecting national team cricketers. Many cricketers have taken a chance in the Indian national team by performing well in the IPL and many players have been dropped from the national team due to poor performance in the IPL.
Let’s take a look at the three cricketers whose performance in IPL 2021 will determine the fate of the national team:
Surya Kumar Yadav: The Mumbai Indians batsman has done well in the IPL last year. Thanks to which he got a chance in the ODI and T20 series of India and England. Although he was not in the first XI in the ODI series, he took advantage of the opportunity in the Twenty20 series. However, there is a lot of competition in the Indian team, so if you want to retain your place in the national team, this time Surya Kumar Yadav will have to perform well in the IPL.
T Natarajan: IPL 2020 was most affected by this loud bowler from Sunrisers Hyderabad. Natarajan’s great yorker and brilliant bowling in the death over surprised everyone. In the absence of Bhubaneswar Kumar, Natarajan gave confidence to the Hyderabad team. He got a chance in the Indian team in terms of performance in the IPL. However, since there are several world-class fast bowlers like Mohammad Sami, Bhubaneswar Kumar and Jaspreet Bumrah in the Indian team, Natarajan will have to perform well in this IPL as well to survive in the national team.
Ishan Kisan: This young wicket-keeper of Mumbai Indians surprised everyone with his performance. Many have identified Ishan Kisan as the next great invention of Indian cricket. He also got a chance in the national team in terms of good performance in the IPL and he has used that opportunity well. Besides batting, Ishan can do good wicket keeping. So, in order to retain his place in the national team, Ishan will have to perform well in this IPL as well.
