2. Deepak Hooda
Deepak Hooda has been around India’s white-ball squad for the last couple of years. He has grown into a vital member of India’s T20I squad, while he has been in and out of the ODI squad. However, with a place up for grabs, the selectors could now once again look towards the allrounder.
Deepak Hooda can be used as a floater in the batting line-up as he could play both roles of an aggressor and a second-fiddle to perfection. Furthermore, his handy off-spin bowling adds depth to the bowling unit and gives an added option to the skipper.
Deepak Hooda has played 10 ODIs for India and has scored 153 runs in 7 innings at a strike rate of almost 81. He also has picked up three wickets at an economy rate of 4.76. The all-rounder could be a bit rusty as he hasn’t played any international game since the New Zealand series but he surely will bring a lot of value to the team.
