T20 World Cup 2021: Lance Klusener names Rohit Sharma among 3 Indian players to watch out for

The much-awaited T20 World Cup 2021 is set to begin on October 17 in Oman and United Arab Emirates (UAE). India will play a host of the multi-team tournament.

The ‘Men in Blue’ will play two warm-up games against England and Australia before beginning their campaign in the global showpiece event against Pakistan on October 24.

Many experts have already named Team India as favourites to go long and even win the T20 World Cup 2021. But who will be the key players that everyone shall be focusing on? Well, former South Africa all-rounder Lance Klusener has picked three Indian players to watch out for in the global competition.

Klusener named star opener Rohit Sharma, explosive wicketkeeper-batter Rishabh Pant, and frontline Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah as the three players who could be game-changers for the Virat Kohli-led side.

The former Proteas cricketer reckoned Rohit is a major player in the Indian team as he always performs in the ICC tournaments.

“Rohit (Sharma) is always there in the mix. He is always in the fight. He is somebody who stands up big in ICC tournaments,” Klusener told The Times of India.

For Pant, Klusener believed the wicketkeeper-batsman has taken over the responsibilities from former India captain MS Dhoni pretty well. The 50-year-old felt Pant has a bright future in the Indian team.

“Rishabh Pant as well. India are so so lucky that they have got somebody like Rishabh Pant, who has been able to take over from MS Dhoni. He is fantastic, and he’s got a huge, huge future in the team,” explained Klusener.

The southpaw further heaped praises on Bumrah for being consistent and versatile. He asserted that Bumrah has the incredible ability to perform at any condition.

“In the bowling attack, Bumrah is always there. He is always a handful on any surface. There’s so much ammunition that India has got to choose from,” Klusener added.

Gautam Gambhir picks Rishabh Pant’s replacement as DC captain for IPL 2022

Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Rishabh Pant didn’t have a great time with the willow in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, but his leadership was very well appreciated. In his debut season as the captain of DC, he guided the previous season’s finalists to finish at the top of the points table.

However, DC failed to qualify for the IPL 2021 final after losing both Qualifiers against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), respectively.

Notably, Pant was appointed as the captain in the absence of Shreyas Iyer ahead of the start of the fourteenth season. In fact, DC kept him as skipper of DC even after Iyer’s return from injury prior to the UAE leg.

There is no doubt that Pant proved his captaincy abilities by leading DC to the playoffs comfortably, but former Delhi skipper Gautam Gambhir think otherwise. Gambhir want DC to head into the new season with a different captain.

In a chat with ESPNcricinfo, Gambhir backed senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin to lead the Capitals for IPL 2022. Although the ex-India cricketer mentioned it might appear as a bizarre call, he would still back Ashwin as the captain for the upcoming season.

“Look, I’m one of his biggest fans, and he’s one of the best spinners in the world. If you look at the overall line-up, it may be a bizarre call maybe, and only I can think about this… but if I was there, I would like to make him the captain of Delhi Capitals next year,” said Gambhir.

Ashwin had previously led Punjab Kings (PBKS) for two seasons in 2018 and 2019 before being traded to the Capitals. KL Rahul replaced the Tamil Nadu cricketer at the helm for the Mohali-based franchise.
