Team India batting coach Vikram Rathour on Tuesday stated the core of players for the upcoming T20 World Cup starting from October has been identified, while interacting with the media ahead of the third T20I between the Men in Blue and New Zealand at Seddon Park on Wednesday.
“Adjustments will keep going on till the last minute. But as far as I am concerned and the team management is concerned, we have the core. We know what our team is going to be. Unless there is a case of injury or really bad loss in form, I don’t see many changes happening,” he said.
Rathour was further full of praise for the upcoming Indian cricketers like Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Chahar, KL Rahul, who have been provided an opportunity to make their presence felt in recent times. Iyer and Rahul have delivered quality performances, with India unbeaten in the T20I series against New Zealand on the back of their efforts.
“This new generation of cricketers is incredible. I find it amazing actually that they turn up and they are at their best straightaway across different format, different grounds and different countries actually. The amount of time they took to get settled (here in NZ)) was outstanding actually,” he said.
“The more opportunities that these guys get, they are showing that they are capable. They are showing that they are match-winners on their day. That will help the team, of course, but it will also help their confidence," concluded Rathour.
