Washington Sundar To Miss Second-Phase Of IPL 2021; Could Miss T20 World Cup
With the T20 World Cup coming up in October, the teams and players are getting ready for the tournament. A lot of the teams have been working on their fitness and form over the last few months. Their aim has been to lift the international trophy of this official shortest format of the game. In order to do that, the players will have to be at their very best and give it their all.
Team India will also be keen to do well in a tournament that was supposed to be hosted by them but will now be hosted in the UAE by the BCCI. Keeping that in mind, the players will want to make an impact. They will want to be taken as serious contenders for the tournament. However, that will surely not be easy, with the various top teams that will have a say in that.
The Latest Update On The Availability Of Washington Sundar For The Second Phase Of The IPL 2021 Tournament And Selection For The T20 World Cup
It has now been confirmed that Washington Sundar will not be available for the second phase of the IPL 2021 tournament. The all-rounder has failed to recover from a finger injury that he picked up in England. This means that he will be trying to recover from the injury ahead of the T20 World Cup.
It could also put his selection for the tournament in doubt. That is due to the fact that he may not be available to be picked and will have had no cricket in these months, leading up to the tournament. It will be a huge loss for the Indian side that would have wanted him amongst their ranks. That is as he gives them an added edge over their opponents.
His contribution could have been crucial in a tournament, which is tailor-made for allrounders. With that being said, Virat Kohli and co. will now have to work without him. Hopefully, they can pick a well-balanced squad and perform well in the T20 World Cup. Let’s wait and watch!!
