T20 World Cup: Team India led by Shikhar Dhawan is playing a series of 3 ODIs against South Africa these days. The second match of the series is being played in Ranchi today. In this series, many young players and many such old players are seen playing, who often get a place in the absence of senior players. Shardul Thakur is also included in these players.
Shardul said before the second ODI against Africa that not being included in the T20 World Cup squad is nothing less than a setback for him. There is still cricket left in him. Shardul has played 25 T20 International matches for Team India so far.
Will prepare for ODI World Cup
Talking before the second ODI match, Shardul said, “Every player has a dream to play and win the World Cup. The ODI World Cup will be played next year, I will prepare for that.” Apart from this, he also talked about the questions arising on the Indian bowlers.
Shardul Thakur defended his teammates ie Indian bowlers. Talking about this, he said, “It is not right from anywhere to criticize only Indian bowlers. The bowlers of the opposition team also have a lot of shortcomings. For India, no match was one sided. We have shown consistency by winning most of the matches. Sometimes more than 350 runs are scored in ODIs.
Played all three formats for India
Shardul Thakur has played all three formats for Team India. He has played a total of 8 Test matches for Team India, in which he has taken 27 wickets and has scored 254 runs contributing with the bat. At the same time, he has taken 38 wickets while playing 26 ODIs and 33 wickets while playing 25 T20 Internationals.
