Deepak Hooda: Of course he is one of them. And his form has surely put more focus on that No. 3 spot. In Virat Kohli’s absence Hooda made the most and now stands an outside chance of boarding the flight to Australia. But for that, he would need opportunities and then make them count. Not a bad choice as a reserve opener and No. 3.
Ravi Bishnoi: Well, the chances are next to nil with Yauzvendra Chahal in the side. But again, considering India would like to attack oppositions with spin in UAE – Bishnoi could make the most of it and make a case for himself of making the T20 WC side.
Avesh Khan: While he still has a long way to go, he could be in for a shot of making the T20 WC squad with brilliant performances in the Asia Cup. While he would not be a certainty with Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Harshal there – but again an injury here and there and he could be in the reckoning.
