The IPL 2023 has been a game to remember because so many young players have impressed with their play in the T20 extravaganza. With their great performances, players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rinku Singh, and Tushar Deshpande have taken the event by storm and are knocking on the door of the Indian T20I team.
Harbhajan Singh told a fan who asked if Rajasthan Royals starter Yashasvi Jaiswal should replace Rohit Sharma on the Indian team that Jaiswal is better than many players right now based on how he is playing.
“If we look at current form and want to shift our attention to young people, Yashasvi Jaiswal is better than most. After they lost the T20 World Cup in Dubai (UAE), there was a lot of talk about putting together a young team for the event. Harbhajan was reported by Hindustan Times as saying that Yashasvi, Rinku Singh, and Shubman Gill should be on a different team than Hardik Pandya.
The 2007 T20 World Cup winner also said that Shubman Gill and Jaiswal should bat first, and that Hardik Pandya should lead the team.
“Hardik Pandya should be the captain, and Shubman Gill and Yashasvi should bat first.” “These guys have a lot of promise,” he said.
In IPL 2023, Jaiswal had a very good season. He got 625 runs in 14 innings, with an average of 48.07 and a strike rate of 163.61. He also hit five fifties and a hundred. The 21-year-old also scored the fastest fifty in IPL history. He did it against Kolkata Knight Riders in just 13 balls. Rohit Sharma, on the other hand, has only made 313 runs in 14 innings, which gives him an average of 22.35 and a strike rate of 134.33.
Will Kohli and Rohit be fired before the T20 World Cup in 2024?
After the poor 2021 and 2022 T20 World Cup campaigns, there has been a lot of talk about changing the Indian team for T20Is. Since Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma haven’t played in any T20Is since the semi-final loss to England in the T20 World Cup 2022, the BCCI is making a plan for the next T20I world cup in 2024.
