After the end of the first T20 between India and West Indies on Friday, parthiv Patel spoke to leading cricket website Cricbuzz. According to the 37 year old former India wicket keeper batter, Ravichandran Ashwin could be missing out of a berth for the World Cup. Patel also named young leg spinner Ravi Bishnoi as the one whom he would love to see play for India later this year in Australia. Speaking to Cricbuzz, Patel said "I see Bishnoi playing ahead of Ashwin in the next game. I don't see ashwin playing the T20 world cup to be honest, would want variety in Bishnoi, Kuldeep and Chahal, wrist spinners give attacking options in the middle and Ashwin doesn't give you that "
Patel also named Shreyas Iyer as a major doubt -
Yesterday during the first T20 lot of fans were surprised with the inclusion of Iyer over Deepak Hooda. Even former selector Kris Srikkanth had questions for the Indian team towards this move. speaking about the 27 year old KKR skipper,Patel said he doesn't see Iyer make the world cup squad as India have lots of options in the batting department. Shreyas Iyer who had a great ODI series against West Indies failed to score any runs on Friday when he failed for a 4 ball duck to Obed McCoy.
