Former Indian pacer Ajit Agarkar is of the opinion that the Indian selectors should not make any changes in the nation's squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup, despite the poor performances exhibited by some of the selected players in the ongoing Indian Premier League. The BCCI has also maintained that there shall not be any changes in the originally chosen squad.

The Indian squad for the T20 World Cup was announced on September 8 by the BCCI, 11 days ahead of the resumption of the second session of IPL 2021 in UAE. With the ICC allowing changes in squads until October 10, there have been numerous speculations over replacements in the national team owing to the current form of a number of players in the IPL. Former Indian bowler Ajit Agarkar, however, feels that there should not be any changes in the squad unless there is an injury, as it only takes one IPL game for a player to regain his form. "In my opinion, once you have picked the squad for World Cup - barring injury - I don't think you should make any changes," Ajit Agarkar mentioned while speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Connected.

"Yes, there are guys at the moment who are not in their great form, but it only takes one innings - whether it's bowling or batting - to change that form around, and that could still happen before the end of the IPL. So, if you think that's the best 15 you've picked going to the World Cup, my personal opinion, I would stick with it, because you have got to show faith in people even when things are not looking so good, because things can turn around very quickly," he added.
