In a surprise decision, Gambhir left out Iyer despite his outstanding performances and his recent return to his Asia Cup squad. Iyer was seen by many as the perfect candidate for the fourth position, which made his absence even more frustrating. Gambhir’s decision not to include Iyer has led to fierce debates among cricket fans via social networks.
The wicketkeeping department takes an approach that is double-headed, that includes KL Rahul as well as Ishan Kishan both being considered.

The bowling attack of India, which is often the underlying factor in their success in major tournaments, is comprised of the three pacemen Jasprit Bumrah Mohammed Shami, and Mohammed Siraj who are all well-known by their capacity to spin as well as seam the ball well. For spin, Gambhir has opted for the skill of wrist-spinning Kuldeep Yadav.
