The Ajit Agarkar-led BCCI selection committee is set to meet Indian skipper Rohit Sharma after the DC vs MI IPL 2024 match on April 27. Following this, the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup is likely to be announced. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has set May 1 as the deadline for the squad announcement.

The T20 World Cup is to be co hosted by USA and West Indies from June 1. The tournament is set to be wound up by 29 June, 2024. 

Who did Manjrekar chose as the second spinner?

With Sir Ravindra Jadeja in a mighty good form, only the second spinner category in the bowler’s list is up for grabs. The spot could be actually filled by either Yuzuvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin, Agar Patel, Varun Chakravarthy or Kuldeep Yadav.

While Ashwin and Chahal are top contenders for the position, with their unmistakably remarkable bowling, Sanjay Manjrekar chose this young player to be the second spinner. 

According to Manjrekar’s predictions, its actually Kuldeep Yadav who might make it to the team as the second spinner alongside Ravindra Jadeja. 

Here’s What Sanjay had to say

Speaking on Star Sports, Sanjay Manjrekar said, “Yes. And 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.”

Yadav’s current form in IPL

Kuldeep is a dedicated bowler of Delhi Capitals in IPL 2024. The player has been showing his true worth in the season with his bowling tactics.

Against GT, Kuldeep returned with figures of 2/29 as DC won by four runs. His impact was enormous as he took Wriddhiman Saha’s and Rahul Tewatia’s key wickets

As DC won their match against Shubman Gill’s Gujarat Titans, Sanjay said, “Last over today, DC wanted a wicket. They got the wicket of Tewatia there and just seized the game. So this is where Kuldeep has now become a champion bowler and he is somebody I mean that we should pencil down. Ravindra Jadeja will come in as a left-arm spinner batter and Kuldeep the second spinner,”.
