Former India Hitter
Former India Hitter, Robin Uthappa, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup champion, has identified the next group of players he feels should be given a chance to solidify their spot in India’s T20 side. With the likes of captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, and Dinesh Karthik nearing the conclusion of their careers, Uthappa believes the time has come for a new generation of Indian cricketers to flourish.
Uthappa, who played a vital part in India’s sole T20 World Cup victory in 2007, believes a slew of hitters with little international experience should be given more chances to make the XI ahead of the 2024 T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the United States of Former India Hitter. “There’s absolutely space for youth today,” Uthappa said in his ICC Media Zone special blog.
“There are a few voids to fill in T20 cricket in terms of finishers, and they may have to look to the future in that regard.”

Former India Hitter Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi, who were among the best scorers in the most recent season of the India Premier League, were singled out by Uthappa as players he would want to see given more opportunities.
“I’d want to see Sanju Samson and Rahul Tripathi in this side,” stated Uthappa.
“They’re both incredibly dynamic and talented young players.”

Uthappa also sees tremendous value in giving a couple of young bowlers a chance ahead of the next T20 World Cup of Former India Hitter, but he doesn’t anticipate significant player turnover before the start of the 50-over World Cup in India next year.
“I’d want to see Umran Malik and Deepak Hooda receive some bowling time,” he said.
“That said, I don’t believe there will be too many personnel changes for the 2023 Cricket World Cup on home soil.”

Uthappa made no excuses for India’s poor performance against England in the T20 World Cup semi-finals of Former India Hitter, saying his former team was simply outplayed on the day in a disappointing 10-wicket loss in Adelaide.
“I’ve heard a lot about a mental block with India and these ICC events, but I don’t believe it.” “The majority of them play in the IPL, which is one of the top competitions in the world,” Uthappa said. “They are not inexperienced in high-pressure circumstances.” India has simply not performed as well in these big matchdays as they have in bilateral series or individually in the IPL.
“You may look into it, but I doubt it will account for anything.” England just played better cricket than India and handled the pressure better at the T20 Cricket World Cup odds 2022.”
