Cricket teams of all countries have started preparations for the T20 World Cup. The Indian team was recently announced for this World Cup starting from October. Ravichandran Ashwin has returned in this team. After four years, Ashwin will once again be seen playing limited overs cricket for Team India. It is being told that Team India’s vice-captain Rohit Sharma has a big hand in Ashwin’s return. According to the report of Times of India, Ashwin’s return to the team has been possible only because of Rohit Sharma.
Rohit Sharma also attended the meeting
Recently, when the selectors were selecting the team for the T20 World Cup 2021, Virat Kohli was involved in this meeting through video call from abroad. Team’s vice-captain Rohit Sharma also got a chance to attend the meeting with him. When the team was being selected, Rohit Sharma supported Ashwin’s return.

Brilliant performance of Ashwin in IPL
It is believed that a big reason for Ashwin’s return to the team has been his excellent performance in the IPL. Ashwin has consistently performed well in the T20 league IPL. In the last season, Ashwin took 13 wickets. Earlier in IPL 2019 too, Ashwin had taken 15 wickets at an economy rate of 7. Ashwin bowls tight in the powerplay. At the same time, due to the high number of left-handed batsmen in foreign teams, Ashwin can prove to be a game changer for India in the T20 World Cup.
