IPL 2020: 5 players who will be out of contention for a T20 World Cup spot if the IPL 13 is canceled

The IPL 2020 has been postponed to April 15 amid coronavirus outbreak.

Shubman Gill

Shubman Gill | IANSThe young Punjab opener has become an important part of the Kolkata Knight Riders team in the past two seasons. He has batted in the middle order and opened the innings for the franchise, succeeding in whichever role he got. He was retained by the franchise for this season and even made a comeback to the Indian team on New Zealand tour, but couldn’t get a match.

IPL 2020: Call on the future of IPL 13 can be taken after April 15, says Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju

He had been hoping for a very good outing in this IPL 2020, as there are spots up for grabs in the Men in Blue side for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in Australia. There is space for a backup opener in the team with Rohit and Dhawan being the chosen ones. However, with the threat of no IPL this year, Shubman might lose the opportunity to show off his talents and impress the ones choosing the squad for the tournament.

He has 499 runs in 27 matches with 4 half-centuries and the best score of 76.
