In the second T20 match played in Rajkot, India defeated Bangladesh by 8 wickets. Almost all the players from Rohit Sharma to Yuzvendra Chahal have kept India alive in the series with their strong game. However, for some players, this match was like a nightmare. Rishabh Pant once again hit the target of cricket fans with a bad stumping skill behind the wicket. At the same time, in the match like the previous match, India’s fast bowler Khaleel Ahmed was beaten fiercely, after which questions have started in the team about his place.

In the second T20 match played in Rajkot, Khaleel gave away 44 runs in his four-over quota. He had only one success in this match. For the 21-year-old youngster, the first T20 match in Delhi was also a nightmare. In the first match played against Bangladesh, Khaleel Ahmed had given away 37 runs in 4 overs, during which Khaleel got a single wicket, but he gave runs with an economy of 9.25. Perhaps this was the main reason for India’s defeat. In such a situation, Khaleel can prove to be a weak link for India’s T20 World Cup team.

Before the start of the match, there was speculation that talented bowlers like Shardul Thakur could get a chance in the team in place of skipper Rohit Sharma in the final 11, but Rohit kept his faith in Khaleel and gave him a chance in the second T20 match. However, this left-arm fast bowler could not live up to the confidence of the Indian captain and in this match too, He gave away the most runs.

Khaleel Ahmed has taken only 13 wickets in the 13 T20 Internationals played so far in his career. The fast bowler, who has made his mark in the IPL, has a normal performance in international matches. His best performance in a T20 match is two wickets for 27 runs. Rohit Sharma has already made it clear that new faces will be given a chance for the T20 World Cup to be played in Australia in 2020, so it seems Khaleel’s poor performance could lead to a sword hanging in his place.
