New Delhi. Team India is waiting for the T20 World Cup trophy for 14 years. A 15-member Indian team has been announced for the tournament (T20 World Cup 2021) to be held from October 17 to November 14. The most shocking name in this is that of mystery spinner Varun Chakravarthy. He has managed to make a place in the World Cup team by playing only 3 T20 Internationals. But many players who played 200 to 300 matches have not got a place in the team. India has won the T20 World Cup title for the only time in 2007.
Varun Chakraborty, 30, made his international debut on the Sri Lanka tour in July this year. He took 2 wickets in 3 matches. Although his economy was 5.30, which is excellent in terms of T20. On the other hand, when it comes to overall T20, he has taken 27 wickets in 24 matches. He plays for Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL. Here too his economy is around 7. At the same time, Yuzvendra Chahal, who played 205 T20s, and Shikhar Dhawan, who played 295 T20s, could not find a place in the World Cup team.
return at the age of 25
Varun Chakravarthy used to play cricket in Tamil Nadu’s school. But later he left the sport and did an architect’s course. Not only this, he also worked for 2 years. But after that he thought of returning to cricket. By then he was 25 years old. He came into the eyes of IPL teams from the Tamil Nadu Premier League. He was bought by Punjab Kings for Rs 8.4 crore for the 2019 IPL. He later joined KKR.
Could not debut after coming in team 2 times
However, Varun Chakraborty had to wait a long time for his international debut. He got a place in the team for the T20 series against Australia in October 2020. But he was ruled out due to injury. In February 2021, he once again got a chance against England for the T20 series, but he failed the fitness test. Ultimately, Rahul Dravid gave him a chance in Sri Lanka as a coach.
