Team India has started the 2021 T20 World Cup in a terrible fashion. The team is almost out of the competition, having lost the first two encounters against Pakistan and New Zealand. In this article, we take a look at a few Twitter reactions which prove that India missed Iyer, Dhawan and Chahal in the T20 World Cup.
India missed Dhawan and Chahal in both games
While against Pakistan, India lost by 10 wickets, Virat Kohli‘s men lost the New Zealand encounter by eight scalps. It was poor performance in all departments of the game by India. Having used the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Yuzvendra Chahal and Shreyas Iyer in recent years, many felt that the trio could have helped Team India do better. The batting collapses could have been avoided with Dhawan and Iyer while the bowling shows had the chances of improvement with Chahal around.
Twitter also feels the same
A major section of Twitter users also felt the same. With the trio of experienced cricketers in the XI, many felt that India could have at least competed. At the moment, unless Afghanistan wins over New Zealand and then India wins against all three opponents by a heavy margin, a qualification to semis is impossible.

So dropping Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Chahal turned out to be a disaster decision.
Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma as openers were perfect.
Shreyas Iyer is a better batsman than Hardik Pandya.
Chahal is a better spinner than Varun Chakravorty.— King_Drunkard_IV (@KingDrunkard) October 31, 2021Advertisement
Dhawan, Chahal and Iyer deserved it, but BCCI always makes Mistakes in Selection of WC Team.#T20WorldCup— Khushal (@KhushalAAP) October 31, 2021
Commenting on hindsight is really not something I like to do but what will be going through the minds of Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Yuzi Chahal, who have all travelled with the side for 5 years since last WC, only to be dropped for a few overrated MI players? #IND— United Fan (@SolskjaerTime) November 1, 2021
Team India is missing Shikhar Dhawan, Yuzvendra Chahal and Shreyas Iyer. Some overhyped players are unnecessarily selected in 15 members squad.#INDvsNZ— TRIDIP KONWAR (@konwar_tridip) October 31, 2021
Major reasons for #TeamIndia Failure— हम निजीकरण का विरोध करते है🇮🇳 (@AnkitKhobraga11) October 31, 2021
1. Carrying Hardik
2. Picking Varun in place of ashwin
3. Not selecting iyer and chahal
4. Not selecting Dhawan who is man of big tournaments
5. Hectic Schedule or too much cricket played by Indian Team
6. Missing advices 💔#INDvsNZ
We need complete revamp in t20..oldies has to go..u played whole 2mnths ipl on same grnd nd ths performance is abysmal..not choosin dhawan and chahal was biggest blunder..gv chance to iyer,harshal patel,rituraj etc in t20.. #INDvsNZ— tapan (@tapanflame) October 31, 2021
Shreyas Iyer jaise players ko main squad mein nehi liya. At least he knows how to play in a situation like this Ab dekh lo kya kamal ki batting ki over confident, inexperienced,one time wonder players ne— Chandrima⁷ 🦋 (@ChandrimaG26) October 31, 2021
Badly missing experienced players like Dhawan and Chahal 💔😭#INDvsNZ
@BCCI Wrong selection and lack of preparations cost us the WC. Now India won't be in top 4. Iyer, Deepak Chahar were deserved to be in the main squad. No Chahal and Dhawan in the WC squad! This team is not even showing intent. Miserably failed! Change the selection committee.— The RC- Rajan Chande 🇮🇳 (@ChandeRajan) October 31, 2021
