Former India allrounder Irfan Pathan has selected a squad for India’s T20 World Cup, with a particular focus on players to watch in the ongoing IPL. Pathan, who played a pivotal role in India’s 2007 title win, sat down with ESPNcricinfo’s Raunak Kapoor to discuss potential candidates for the upcoming tournament.

India’s batting lineup continues to center around Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, who is likely to be the captain. Pathan emphasizes Kohli’s importance in big tournaments and dispels any doubts about his strike rate, stating that there should be no question about his selection.

The selection of a wicketkeeper remains a major point of discussion, with Rishabh Pant, Jitesh Sharma, and KL Rahul all in contention. Pant has recently recovered from a serious injury, while Sharma has shown promise but lacks experience at the international level. Pathan suggests that Rahul should focus on batting in the middle-order during the IPL to strengthen his case for selection.

Pathan also highlights the need for a quality left-arm fast bowler in any World Cup-winning team and throws his support behind Mohsin Khan of Uttar Pradesh and Lucknow Super Giants, despite his lack of international experience. Pathan believes that a strong IPL performance from Khan could sway the selectors in his favor.
