Compared to IPL 2021 (IPL 2021) is starting from 19 September. Meanwhile, the team’s former aggressive batsman Virender Sehwag said that if Devdutt Padikkal performs well in the IPL, then I will give him a place in the World Cup team instead of Ishaan and Rahul. The World Cup matches are to be held in UAE and Oman from 17 October to 14 November.
Virender Sehwag told news agency PTI that KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Devdutt Padikkal and Sanju Samson will be most eyeing in the IPL. He said, ‘Ishaan is my first choice. This was followed by Padikkal, Rahul and Samson. I will watch these four carefully. I like Devdutt’s batting. If I had to choose one of the four, I would give him a place in the team.
