As the senior selection committee, led by Ajit Agarkar, gathers in Ahmedabad to finalize India‘s squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup set to be held in the USA and the Caribbean, significant deliberation surrounds the potential inclusions of Sanju Samson and Shubman Gill.

While Sanju Samson, who has been displaying an impressive performance in the ongoing IPL, seems to be a frontrunner for a spot in the lineup, uncertainties persist surrounding the team’s needs and the balance required in the squad.

The latest discussions reveal that Samson might not be a certain pick amidst the team management’s requirements for a lower-order wicketkeeper, potentially influencing the reconsideration of Dhruv Jurel and Jitesh Sharma in place of KL Rahul.

Moreover, opinions on Shubman Gill’s inclusion vary as Rohit Sharma, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav are speculated to occupy the top 4 batting positions, leaving Gill’s fate hanging.

In terms of all-rounders, Hardik Pandya‘s form raises concerns, yet his current position in the squad remains vital due to limited alternatives. On the other hand, Shivam Dube is anticipated to secure a spot, primarily for his power-hitting abilities.

The bowling unit is expected to feature Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, and Arshdeep Singh, with selectors opting for a smaller pace department to accommodate additional batting depth.

Outside the final squad of 15, potential reserves include the likes of Gill, Riyan Parag, Ravi Bishnoi, and Rituraj Gaikwad.
