The commonly assumed October 10 deadline was just for teams scheduled to compete in the qualifying round from October 17 onwards, according to the latest cricket news reports.
An ICC official confirmed, saying: -Teams can change their teams seven days before the start of their support period. India-s support period starts with the Super 12 which begins on October 23. So, they have time to change the team till Oct 15 midnight."
Former players have expressed their displeasure with the omission of prominent players such as Shikhar Dhawan and Yuzvendra Chahal. Especially after their performance in the IPL 2021 UAE leg.
Deepak Chahar and Shardul Thakur have been selected as reserves for the Indian team. Meanwhile, all-rounder Hardik Pandya's services remain in doubt, since he is yet to bowl in the second phase of the IPL.
India T20 WC squad: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (VC), KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Chahar, Varun, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja, Ishan Kishan.
