Cricket is a cruel game sometimes for the fans but is more so for the players involved. With more talent coming though than ever, it is getting increasingly difficult to nail one’s place in the starting 11. This list shows some examples of this unfortunate scenario. Let’s look at some player who played in the last 20-20 World Cup but won’t be featuring this year.

The first on the list is the Rajasthan-born right-arm spinner Deepak Chahar. The Punjab player had a decent Indian T20 League this season with 14 wickets in 13 matches at an economy of 7.71. That in isolation is a good stat but when compared with Yazvendra Chahal, it falls flat. The latter is expected to be promoted ahead of Chahar for the upcoming World Cup.

Varun Chakravarthy


The story of this mystery spinner is even worse in the Indian T20 League. Having taken just six wickets in 10 games with an economy of 8.40, it is certain that he would be given a miss as the new crop of bowlers have come through.
